‘Bringing Great British sound to the world’: Cambridge Audio expands senior team to accelerate growth
Cambridge Audio has welcomed two key new members to its management team, as the brand accelerates its plans for global growth and even wider audience appeal.
Firstly, Charlie Henderson joins as Marketing Director. With a background of over 25 years in consumer electronics, most recently as Managing Director of Naim Audio, Mr Henderson brings a fresh perspective to the business and a passion for shaping the future of audio.
Secondly, Marcus Jemmotte joins as Finance Director, with a background across a range of NASDAQ250 and FTSE100 companies in the digital, creative and marketing services, retail, e-commerce and financial services sectors. Growing up in Monserrat, home to George Martin’s Air Studios and all its attendant top-name recording artists, Mr Jemmotte’s arrival at a music-obsessed company is “well overdue”, it said.
Cambridge Audio’s Managing Director, Stuart George, commented: “Over the last few years, we’ve been able to adapt to the many challenges facing our industry – from component shortages to the pandemic itself – and I will always be grateful for the continued support of our listeners worldwide who enjoy our products.
“We now have a real opportunity to realise our ambitions not just as a world-leading hi-fi manufacturer, but also as a progressive company and place to work. Charlie and Marcus coming on board will undoubtedly help us see our goals come to fruition as we enter our next phase as a company.”
Mr Henderson added: “So much of the audio industry is full of people claiming to love music, but just by walking into the Cambridge Audio HQ, you can feel the passion is genuine, deep rooted and everywhere. Music matters here. It’s incredibly exciting to be a part of this creative energy that surrounds everything the team do, and to bring this to life in an authentic way.”
These two new appointments follow the recent hiring of Matt Reilly as Head of Business Development in the US, bolstering the Chicago-based team on the other side of the Atlantic.
So far in 2022, Cambridge Audio has already received two prestigious Red Dot Design Awards for its Evo music-streaming systems and Melomania 1+ true wireless in-ear headphones, and has released the first of two new Alva Bluetooth turntables coming to market this year.
