Allen & Heath has appointed its current R&D director Rob Clark to the role of managing director, following the decision by longstanding company figurehead, Glenn Rogers, to pass on the reins to the next generation.
Clark joined the company as a digital R&D engineer in 1993 and has played a key role in the development of the company’s digital mixers, becoming R&D director in 2008.
Rogers remains a director of the Audiotonix group, focusing on identifying market opportunities and helping to specify new products.
“It’s an honour to take on this new challenge. Glenn has been a trusted friend and mentor for more than 20 years, and I know we can rely on his wise counsel in the future,” Clark commented. “It’s a fantastic time to move into this role; the product range has never been stronger, we’re blessed with an amazingly talented team, and we have the collective expertise of the Audiotonix group to draw upon.”
Added Rogers: “Rob has a wealth of experience and the best team in the business behind him, so I know that Allen & Heath will continue to go from strength to strength under his leadership. I am excited to take up new challenges for the Audiotonix group and look forward to exploring the new ideas and technologies that will shape the next generation of mixers.”
