Dominic Harter, formerly of Soundcraft/Harman, starts as managing director at loudspeaker manufacturer Martin Audio this week.
Martin Audio, first formed in 1971, remains part of the Loud Technologies group, based out of Seattle – though the company is understood to have been "for sale" for several years.
Harter – seen, above, at the Pro Sound Awards 2014 – replaces Luke Ireland, who has been leading the company since June 2014.
"I’m excited by the energy, talent and love of the brand within Martin Audio. I can’t wait to get going," says Harter.
Dominic Harter rejoined Harman to head up Harman Mixer BU/Soundcraft's global sales operation in December 2012. He originally joined the group in 1998, primarily to manage the systems supply of equipment to the Millennium Dome project, going on to become sales manager with BSS Audio and amplifier brand C Audio. Harter left the Harman fold in 2002, going on to spend 10 years with PA systems maker Turbosound as director of R&D and, ultimately, sales director.
