The Audio Engineering Society (AES) has named Sean Martin to its staff as international sales manager, where he is responsible for event sales, sustaining memberships, Audio Product Education Institute (APEI) sponsorships and e-library subscriptions in addition to working with AES Standards Sustainers.
“Sean has a phenomenal background in professional audio,” says AES Director of Sales and Marketing, Graham Kirk, “ideally suiting him to for this new position. Given his proven record of success and his stature in the industry, we are confident that the Society, our industry partners and the industry as a whole will benefit from Sean’s joining the AES team.”
Starting his career with London’s Court Acoustics, co-owned by AES member Stephen Court and Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, Martin’s first interaction with the Audio Engineering Society began with demonstrating Court sound systems at an AES convention in Montreux, Switzerland. Now, several years later and following international sales and business development roles with professional audio manufacturers such as JBL, Tannoy, EAW, Bose and Turbosound, Martin is bringing decades of sales management experience to the new position.
“Throughout my career,” says Martin, “I’ve seen the ubiquitous impact of the Audio Engineering Society’s rich legacy of driving audio technology forward while providing a foundation of standards that benefit audio professionals globally, daily. I’m delighted to join the team as a bridge between the Society and its corporate sponsors as we work together to inform and educate audio pros, to further advance the science and practice of audio, and to build a stronger industry.”
