“There will be speculation that my departure has something to do with the new owner of Midas Klark Teknik, but this could not be further from the truth,” explained Cooper. “Midas and Klark Teknik are profitable, in extremely capable hands, have a stable vision for long term growth that remains true to the brand values and have already received considerable investment from the Music Group. I have nothing but optimism for the future success and growth of Midas and Klark Teknik business on a global basis.”
The idea behind Cooper’s business venture is to provide sales and brand management services to a small number of pro audio manufacturers. Midas Klark Teknik will become his first client and he will represent the brands exclusively in Asia.
"I’m absolutely thrilled to be in a position to now offer my services to other manufacturers,” said Cooper. ”Fronting Midas' exceptional sales and marketing team for nearly 20 years has been an honour and a pleasure, but over the last few months I've had a strong desire to be in charge of my own destiny. At Midas, we've had some good times; we've had some great times, but if I don’t do it now, I never will.”
John Oakley, managing director of Midas Klark Teknik said: “I am incredibly sad to see David leave the company after all he has done for our brands and his record speaks for itself. However in equal measure we are delighted to start using the services of David Cooper Consulting and fully expect a mutually beneficial, long term relationship.”
