TC Group announces structural changes

Tannoy, Lab.gruppen, Lake and White Acoustics have announced some key structural changes for the touring and installation markets.

Michael Munch has been appointed to the role of vice president of product management across the installation, touring, and residential market verticals. Munch joined TC Electronic in 2004, before moving to Lab.gruppen in 2006 head of product management at Lab.gruppen and Lake. His new role will see him bring the company’s resources together to form a stronger team, with overall product management responsibility of the Tannoy, Lab.gruppen, Lake and White Acoustics brands.

Elsewhere, Tim Chapman, who joined the Group five years ago, has been appointed vice president of marketing across all the installation and touring brands, managing all marketing functions and personnel based in Coatbridge for the Tannoy, Lab.gruppen, Lake and White Acoustics brands.

Furthermore, a brand new department has been created in order to increase overall customer support in the installation and touring markets. The new Application, Engineering & Training (AET) group will cover issues such as design advice, consultant liaison, onsite commissioning, product training, general education programs, customer outreach and trade show presentations. Tannoy’s Graham Hendry will head up the AET group, working across the Tannoy, Lab.gruppen, Lake and White Acoustics brands.

TC Group has also appointed Carsten Ishøy as vice president of sales for installed sound. Carsten joined the company as vice president of sales in the HD market in January 2011. This new opportunity will see him aim to optimise sales channels, as well as taking important initiatives towards strengthening the Group’s position in the install market.

“We are delighted to announce these new appointments across the board,” said Andrzej Sosna, managing director at Tannoy (and also in overall charge of the new vice presidents of marketing, product management and the AET group). “The collective experience of the individuals will greatly enhance the capability, both internally and externally, of the Tannoy, Lab.gruppen, Lake and White Acoustic brands. Bringing the brands together like this will also allow us to utilise the expertise we have across the departments, providing us with a wider knowledge base and synchronised approach to both the touring and install markets.”
