Soundcraft Studer has promoted Alan Wright to the role of quality and continuous improvement manager. Formerly UK R&D manager, Wright will report directly to Andy Trott, VP and general manager mixing, microphones and headphones at Harman Pro.
Wright joined Harman in 1995, working with BSS Audio before moving to Soundcraft under the same roof in Potters Bar. He has an MBA from the University of Hertfordshire.
“During the past few years running engineering services, and latterly R&D here, we have made huge strides in production efficiencies, speed of new product introduction and quality levels,” Wright said. “We regard quality, ISO, and GreenEdge as absolute brand imperatives and it’s my job to ensure we continuously improve in every area of the business.”
Andy Trott added: “We pride ourselves on the levels of quality and ingenuity across our businesses but we also have a mantra of continuously improving everything we do, however large or small that improvement might be. It is Alan’s role to drive the business on all fronts of quality – ISO, process improvements and Green initiatives – we consider these to be business imperatives, hence why this function reports directly to me.”
