Yamaha Music Europe has appointed Reece Stead as its new commercial audio sales representative for the northern UK and Northern Ireland.
Stead has engineered, teched and stage managed at numerous live events, including the Village Green and Festifeel festivals, as well as working with artists including Rizzle Kicks, Reef, Lucy Rose, Lianna la Havas and alongside Andy Shillito, live sound co-ordinator for The Darkness.
“My passion is for live sound reinforcement, so to work with Yamaha’s industry-leading products on a day in, day out basis is a wonderful opportunity,” he says. "It’s very clear that the time and care that goes into the development and manufacture of every Yamaha professional audio product is reflected in that which is taken to look after the customers and end users."
“With his experience, knowledge and enthusiasm, Reece is a very valuable addition to the Yamaha team,” adds UK & RoI sales sanager Terry Murphy.
