His diverse experience in traditional and cutting edge media tools will benefit us greatly in the Install and Tour market vertical in the coming years.”

Committed to the new role, Andy has relocated to Glasgow, Scotland’s cultural capital. He takes up the role of VP of Marketing immediately (Monday November 3rd).
“I am really looking forward to getting settled in and working with the fantastic team that TC Group has built up over the years. I am especially proud to be working out of the UK Tannoy office, having observed the company pushing their unique transducer technology forward, year on year, as well as manufacturing beautiful products out of this UK operation.
“TC Group is a company I have admired for many years, having seen them make some extremely well thought out projects during my time in the industry. This now positions the group as a true force in most areas of the sound business and this is especially true for Install and Tour markets where I will be lucky enough to be focused. Their unique technology is delivering true meaningful value to the market and I am honoured to be given the opportunity to help continue their reputation for being the best; whether that is for their training, technology or their product launches.”
