Astro Spatial has appointed industry veteran Graham Murray to the position of global business development manager, effective immediately.
Revered within the professional audio industry, Murray brings 35 years of industry experience to his new role, as he bids to "raise Astro Spatial Audio's profile on a worldwide level and cultivate the success that this astonishing technology deserves".
He has worked across a wide range of sectors within the pro audio market, 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 senior positions for the likes of Calrec, Fairlight and AMS Neve.
"Having watched ASA's progress over the last two years, it is now a great pleasure to finally join the team and become part of the company’s amazing journey into the 3D, immersive audio arena," said Murray. "Astro Spatial Audio’s founder, Bjorn Van Munster, has done an outstanding job building the brand with some significant successes in high profile venues across the globe. With this exciting technology and the brand agnostic nature of the Sara II Premium Rendering Engine, I look forward to helping Astro Spatial Audio establish itself as the industry standard platform it deserves to be."
"Astro Spatial Audio has grown quickly and I’m very proud of what we have achieved so far, but we have also been watching carefully for the right person and the right opportunity to help us expand even further," added Bjorn Van Munster, director of Astro Spatial Audio. "Now, with Graham's extraordinary experience and knowledge we are ready to leap to the next level. I am delighted to welcome Graham into the Astro Spatial Audio family."
