The UK distributor has announced the appointment of Nick Bellis (pictured) and Darren Elliott to tour and installed sound positions, respectively. Former Adlib Audio touring engineer and pro-audio sales representative for Tannoy and Arbiter, Bellis takes up the role of UK technical sales manager for tour sound, while Elliott – previously an employee of Harman Pro UK – becomes Southern area sales manager for installed sound.
“It feels like coming home to be able to represent JBL and all the Harman Pro products,” commented Bellis (pictured). “With JBL, Crown, Soundcraft and BSS we can offer complete system integration, and with some brilliant new products arriving such as the Soundcraft Vi1 I can’t wait to get out there and re-introduce live sound customers to our systems.”
Elliott added: “I’m delighted to be joining Sound Technology and working with brands I am already familiar with. I’m looking forward to using my experience in the industry to help our customers provide first class product and service to the installation sector.”
Speaking to PSN-e, Sound Technology sales director Greg Niven reflects: “Since our products have applications across all pro sectors we are aiming to effectively service as many of these as possible. The new Project Team is focusing on integrated system solutions for projects across the board from scalable retail solutions to full-blown stadia installs. With Darren and Joe [East, northern area sales manager, installed sound] we are targeting installers and integrators with tried-and-tested solutions and with ‘bread and butter’ commercial audio products such as the JBL Control Contractor Series. Nick Bellis brings welcome professional tour sound experience to our team with a clear focus on developing relationships with high-end and mid-size live sound companies.”
