John Oakley, general manager of Midas Klark Teknik, added: "Karl is one of the best sales managers in pro audio and I am delighted that the rapidly growing Midas Digital range has tempted him to join us during this exciting phase in the company's development. I've known Karl for many years and he brings a wealth of experience to us. Karl's appointment fills the biggest gap in our new sales management structure, which has already grown sales substantially in Asia and Eastern Europe."
