UK: The former Shuttlesound sales consultant is Midas/Klark Teknik's new technical sales manager, reports PSN-e. Jason Kelly - who has also worked as a sound engineer and system designer, and headed up his own rental and production company - is the first to take on the newly-created role at Midas/Klark Teknik. He is replaced at Shuttlesound by Rob Hughes, previously a production manager at SSE.
In his new position, Kelly - whose other credits include a pivotal role in the development of Klark Teknik's DN9696 recorder - will provide the two brands' international distributor network with pre- and post-sales support, product training and system design. He will also assist with local Midas and Klark Teknik academies and distributor/end-user training, both at the UK headquarters and on an international basis.
"I'm very excited about my new role," said Kelly. "It will offer our distributor network a new resource as we look forward to a completely networked range of digital products from Midas and Klark Teknik. The possibilities and flexibility of these new products mean that this type of technical support, for both our distributors and end users, becomes very important. Although our products are always easy for the operator to use, the technology underneath the bonnet is complex. A large part of my new role will be to make any learning curves as smooth as possible for the end-user, giving our distributors an added advantage in their markets."
