Former Avid salesman joins Martin Audio

In order to streamline its continuing expansion into global markets Martin Audio has appointed Dominic Jacobson to the new role of export account manager.

Jacobson will apply skills gained from the film, broadcast TV and music production industries to the live sound and contracting markets, where he will be responsible for the EMEA territories.

“I’m relishing the challenge of promoting a brand that is so highly regarded in each of its core market sectors,” he said. “I am particularly looking forward to growing the business in certain parts of the world such as Africa, where there is scope for furthering Martin Audio’s market share.”

The new recruit will report to director of sales, Simon Bull, who commented: “Dominic’s appointment will provide much-needed assistance through a range of EMEA territories, and enable us to apply greater focus to some burgeoning countries.

“He is already well established with audio professionals in many of the territories that he will be visiting and has a strong technical aptitude that makes him well suited to this role.”

Jacobson also assumed a pan-EMEA role as sales manager for Euphonix/Avid, and spent 17 years as a music producer and DJ, during which time he worked as a resident DJ for Ministry of Sound and Fabric, where he received first hand experience of premium Martin Audio systems.
