'It's an honour to take on this new challenge': Rob Clark

Mixing console manufacturer Allen & Heath has appointed Rob Clark as its new managing director, following the decision of longstanding company figurehead Glenn Rogers to pass the reins on to the next generation. 

Clark, who previously served as R&D director, joined the company in 1993 as a digital engineer and has played a key role in the development of its digital mixers.

Rogers will remain a director of the Audiotonix parent group (comprising Allen & Heath, Digico and Calrec Audio), focusing on identifying market opportunities and helping to specify new products.

Clark said: “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. 

"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. Together we will continue to grow the business with the passion and innovation that Glenn has always personified.”

Rogers added: “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.”
