HHB veteran Martin O'Donnell is promoted to director of sales in just one of numerous changes at the distributor.

As part of a series of changes designed to consolidate HHB's position as a leading European supplier of broadcast audio technology, Martin O'Donnell has been promoted to director of sales.

A key member of the HHB team for more than 22 years, O'Donnell will continue to report to Steve Angel who moves up to group sales director - a new position with responsibilities for the sales performance of HHB, its Soho-based subsidiary Scrub and its distribution division Source.

The move precipitates a further reshuffle of the HHB sales team, while also creating new positions, which are expected to be filled in the near future.

Key among the changes is Nikki Kalsi, who is promoted to manager, broadcast & SI sales, focusing on sales and services to UK broadcast media technology companies, and with responsibility for Dolby product management.

Greg Wheeler becomes manager, professional audio sales, encompassing a wider brief for sales in the broadcast and computer game sectors with Avid Pro Tools and file-based systems.

Matthew Fletcher continues as international sales manager, with additional responsibilities for UK market development of HHB distributed brands, while Andrew Hingley's role as education sales manager is expanded to encompass product management responsibilities for digital consoles, audio over IP and MADI.

O'Donnell said: "It is a fascinating time in the professional audio industry. HHB's role as long-term partner and trusted ally to those in the professional audio community has never been greater. Combining a talented and committed team with exciting and innovative products has always been our philosophy." www.hhb.co.uk
