Industry Movers: pro-audio appointments for November

Sennheiser, Broadcast Networks, L-Acoustics, QSC and Proel round off the first set of appointments for November.

After three successful years at Sennheiser UK in the role of sales manager, production sound, Nick Pemberton (pictured) has been appointed to a new role as market development manager. Pemberton will be working closely with product and account managers to create opportunities, launch new products and maximise opportunities for the Sennheiser and Neumann brands, as well as Sennheiser UK’s distributed third party products. Initially focusing on the broadcast, theatre and integrated systems markets, he will also be training internal team members to develop and maintain product and market knowledge. Elsewhere, systems integration specialist Broadcast Networks has strengthened its management team by appointing Malcolm Robinson as director – media and broadcast solutions. He joins the company from Sony PSE where, as general manager for live production solutions, he was responsible for the design and build of more than 200 OB vehicles and studios. Bolstering its commitment to the fixed installation and touring market, L-Acoustics has appointed Dan Orton to the post of application engineer for the UK and Ireland. Based in the UK, Orton is primarily tasked with providing support for both consultants and UK L-Acoustics systems integrators. At QSC, John White, PhD has been appointed to vice president, research and development. White most recently served as vice president of engineering at THX, the cinema technology company founded by filmmaker George Lucas, where he led the company’s transformation from a test and certification company to a product development firm. Prior to THX, he was director of engineering at Avid. Finally, Proel International has appointed Steve Clinkscale as the company’s new sales agent for Scotland. Clinkscale takes over Scotland from Pete Ward, who will be concentrating on his original areas of the North of England going forward.
