Graham Murray will take charge of international business development and channel management for JoeCo, with a remit to deepen the UK manufacturer's ties into key export markets.
Having previously worked extensively in both Asia and the Middle East, Murray brings more than 35 years of industry experience and expertise to his new role. He is described by JoeCo founder and managing director Joe Bull as "a world-class audio professional with a reputation to match his considerable experience".
A well-known and highly respected figure within the global audio community, he possesses both technical expertise and a deep knowledge of market sectors ranging from high-end broadcast and post-production to the studio sector and live sound. Most recently he held the position of sales director, EMEA for the Harman Pro brand, Studer, while in the past he has served in leadership positions for brands including Calrec, Fairlight and AMS Neve.
Murray arrives at JoeCo following the launch of the Cello desktop interface, with 384k recording and 125 dB dynamic range.
As part of his new remit, Murray will spearhead international sales, delivering increased visibility and success for JoeCo products including the industry standard Blackbox range of multi-channel recorders and players, and award-winning Blueox audio interface recorders.
"JoeCo is consistently the choice of true industry professionals for whom rock solid reliability and audio excellence are the most important factors," commented Murray. "The company itself holds dear to the same principles I myself believe in – quality always comes first.
"After 10 years of building a remarkably loyal customer base, it's now time for JoeCo to move to the next level with a much stronger international presence and more support on the ground. I'm excited to be a part of this next phase in the company's growth."
Added Joe Bull: "Graham has spent years at the forefront of the broadcast and pro audio markets and because of that experience he understands why professionals choose JoeCo.
"Our company is not the largest in the industry, but we know that our products are the best. With Graham on board, we're going to take that message to the global market and give everyone the opportunity to understand the difference that JoeCo makes."
