“We are absolutely delighted to announce that Bill is joining us,” says group managing director Ian McCarthy. “This is the first appointment we’ve made since the companies merged in March of this year and Bill will assume all sales and marketing responsibilities for the group.”
Woods, a highly respected veteran of the pro audio industry, has been living with his family in the USA for the past three years and for some of that time, he worked on a freelance basis representing Quested. Later he returned to live sound, working for Ashly Audio to help them establish Camco in the US Market.
McCarthy continues, “Having known Bill for many years, I knew that the skills and professionalism he offers are exactly what we would look for in a sales and marketing director, so when I learned that he would be returning to the UK, I decided to approach him to see if he would be interested in heading up our sales and marketing team. Happily he is, and I feel that what Bill brings to the group, will considerably strengthen all three companies.”
Woods adds, “It is a very exciting time to return to the UK and I am delighted to be joining such a great team. The individual brands are all very strong but the merger has prompted an unprecedented sharing of resources that will lead to some incredible, innovative products in the near future—I am looking forward to meeting as many customers as possible.”
