Allen & Heath has appointed Markus Sinsel as the mixing console company’s new sales director.
Sinsel joins Allen & Heath from its Germany, Spain and Great Britain distributor, Audio-Technica Europe, where he held the role of Allen & Heath brand manager. Allen & Heath’s managing director, Rob Clark commented, “Markus has been part of the Allen & Heath family for the past 17 years and has a truly exceptional understanding of both our products and our customers. I cannot imagine a more qualified individual to drive our continued growth in cooperation with our distribution partners.”
Markus Sinsel added, “Allen & Heath has been a central element of my professional life, first as an audio engineer, then working with the great team at Audio-Technica Europe to develop the brand in Germany and the UK. I am looking forward to building relationships with distribution partners around the world and working with them to provide excellent service to the customers who put their trust in Allen & Heath.”
“Being the distribution partner responsible for three strategic sales regions for the Allen & Heath brand (Germany, Spain and Great Britain)” comments Robert Morgan-Males, CEO of Audio-Technica Europe, “efficient and strong relationship is always the key success factor between manufacturer and distributor. While of course we’re disappointed to see Markus Sinsel depart after many years of service to the Audio-Technica German market, his consummate knowledge of the Allen & Heath brand, the European customer-base and our own business processes will only add dividends to the strength of this relationship. We are all looking forward to ‘continuing’ working with Markus, now in a new role, and congratulate him on the appointment.”
Allen & Heath has also announced the appointment of Val Gilbert as technical marketing manager.
Based near London, Gilbert will be supporting Allen & Heath’s international distributor network, optimising the levels of education and training support they’re able to offer. Gilbert has spent the last six years as the global engineering support manager at Nexo and brings more than 10 years’ hands-on experience working as a FOH engineer across the UK and France.
“It’s an extremely exciting time to join the Allen & Heath team. The brand has gone from strength to strength and with more great things to come, I’m looking forward to developing the education and support offerings for Allen & Heath on a global scale,” comments Gilbert. “The talent and passion for user-based solutions at Allen & Heath is unrivalled, so it’s an honour to be on-board.”
Rob Clark, managing director at Allen & Heath, comments, “We’re excited to welcome Val to the technical team. His extensive experience places him in an excellent position to help us develop our global product education and training and to better support our customers. Val is already making a great addition to the team and will be out in the field working closely with our distributors by Spring.”
