Pro audio distributor Synthax Audio UK has appointed Simon Roome as its new sales manager.
With over 25 years of experience, Roome will be responsible for sales across the broadcast and professional parts of the Synthax UK portfolio, including the Calrec Brio and Type-R broadcast consoles and pro audio solutions from RME, Ferrofish, DirectOut and Appsys.
His most recent experience involved 10 years working for Studer by Harman as UK sales manager and as product manager. For Synthax, Roome will leverage his many relationships with important customers in the broadcast, live and professional audio sectors.
Based in St. Albans, Hertfordshire, Roome will work closely with Synthax’s managing director Martin Warr. “I’m delighted to welcome Simon to our team,” Warr commented. “Since we acquired distribution rights for the Calrec Brio last year and are now adding Type-R to our offering, Simon joins at just the right time to aid Synthax’s push into new market sectors, as well as consolidating our existing customers in the live and studio communities.”
Of his new role, Roome said: “I’m excited to join Synthax UK at a time when the company is experiencing substantial growth. Synthax has a great reputation for providing top-level support, advice and technical expertise for brands like RME and Calrec, and I’m looking forward to continuing this philosophy whilst establishing new business opportunities throughout the UK.”
