Studiomaster has announced the appointment of Max Lindsay Johnson as international sales manager.
Lindsay-Johnson was the former MD of Harman Pro UK and moved with the Harman UK business to the Letchworth-based supplier, Sound Technology and was involved in the incorporation of the Harman brands. In his new post Lindsay-Johnson will endeavour to further develop the worldwide distribution network of the Studiomaster brand.
He commented on his appointment: “Studiomaster has a substantial pro-audio heritage, stretching back to the mid 1970s, and is a well-respected name worldwide. My appointment coincides with the brand’s re-launch, and I couldn’t be joining the company at a more dynamic time in its history. Studiomaster has been re-organised, new products have been designed, and it’s on track to becoming a world-class brand. Our new product portfolio has its emphasis on quality and choice at very competitive price points, with an excellent selection of innovative products that address the MI, live and install sectors. My target is to ensure that the Studiomaster brand achieves its planned growth over the next few years and, with the additional resources now available to us, this promises to be a successful and rewarding experience – for the company and its customers alike.”
Audio Pro understands that Lindsay-Johnson had effectively been on leave since September 2008 and had been involved very little in the Harman UK business that Sound Technology bought last year.
Sound Technology owner, Robert Wilson stated: “For us, it is important to stress that there has been a full team in place since the very beginning of our involvement and Max’s move does not affect our business one bit.Article continues below
“We incorporated the Harman products into our portfolio last year very swiftly and that work has not missed a single beat since then.”
This is the second big announcement from Studiomaster following the recent news that it has been acquired by the Chinese company Soundking Group Limited. Lindsay-Johnson and Studiomaster will be present at this year’s Prolight + Sound show from April 1st to 4th at Messe Frankfurt, Germany.
