Chris Hinds has joined Outline as director of sales for EMEA following some years as European sales manager at Turbosound. His market experience is informed by a varied career that includes running a busy PA hire company, hands-on experience in manufacturing, and national brand management for a major UK distributor.

In addition to direct responsibility for European sales, Hinds will be actively developing the distributor network throughout the region.

"This is a really exciting opportunity to work with a company who are genuinely innovative, very progressive and with a clear vision of the future," he said. "Obviously I’ve been aware of Outline for years, particularly because of their relationship with Britannia Row, but when I visited them I was just astounded. Their R&D and manufacturing technology, their knowledge and experience, and most of all their products are just so impressive. I’ve very proud to be joining the team’.

Giorgio Biffi, Outline CEO said: "Finding the right person is never easy but Chris feels like a very natural fit for us, and his wide experience and many contacts throughout Europe are a valuable contribution to our company. We welcome him to the Outline family!’
