Former Turbosound sales director Dominic Harter has rejoined Harman to lead Soundcraft’s global sales operation, following the promotion of Adrian Curtis to VP of sales. Harter originally joined Harman in 1998, primarily to manage the systems supply of Harman equipment to the Millennium Dome project, working with all the Harman brands on all aspects of the project. With the completion of the project, Harter became sales manager with BSS Audio and C Audio, using his in-depth technical knowledge and sales skills to support the distributors and products. Harter has spent the last 10 years with Turbosound, where he was director of R&D before becoming sales director. “It’s great to be back at Harman with so many great people and old friends,” Harter reported. “Soundcraft was the first brand I ever worked for as a student and I am relishing this opportunity to steer the brand through the next phases of the digital console market development, and work with all the regional Harman Pro sales teams around the world. It is a pleasure to be part of such a fantastic brand.”
Harter’s vacancy has been filled by Sean Martin of EAW (left), who is also back in familiar surroundings.
Martin has over 30 years experience at an international level with some of the industry’s best known brands including an earlier four-year period with Turbosound in the late ’90s, where he presided over one of the company’s reported strongest growth periods, resulting in its second Queen’s Award for Export Achievement. His new role is head of international sales for Turbosound, part of the newly-formed Music Group Pro Division which includes Midas and Klark Teknik.
“I’m very happy to be returning to Turbosound, a company that I’ve always had immense admiration for in pursuing a focused line of loudspeaker development. With the considerable resources of the Music Group behind us and a great engineering team who have just been recognised for their innovative designs, I am confident that Turbosound will continue to grow and prosper and I am delighted to be able to play a part.”
