To support its aggressive growth strategy, The Multi-Room Company Ltd. has appointed Matt Statham to the position of sales manager to head up field sales across the southern region of the UK and to give installers and retailers a dedicated point of contact for the company’s comprehensive product offering. Matt joins The Multi-Room Company from specialist AV brand distribution business, Anthem AV, where he was responsible for the growth of its business in the South over the past four years. Prior to that he held sales positions with KEF Audio and Acoustic Energy. The Multi-Room Company holds the exclusive UK distribution rights for several high profile custom installation brands including: Russound; Centralite; Atlantic Technology; Key Digital; and the recently introduced Italian loudspeaker brand, Garvan Acoustics. The company’s hi-fi distribution division, RPD Distribution, is responsible for UK sales of Heed Audio. Statham’s proven track record in the high-end custom installation industry, working in a business-to-business environment with architects, specifiers and buyers, and with the hi-fi retail sector, equip him with the knowledge and skills to develop both areas of The Multi-Room Company’s business. On joining the business, Matt says, “The opportunity to join a successful business with the longevity and portfolio of The Multi-Room Company was too good a chance to miss. Its range of brands and the exciting new products being introduced, together the close-knit team’s approach to a personal customer experience, have me feeling very excited about getting stuck in.” He continues, “The opportunities open to the business via its carefully selected brands and loyal customer base are many. And the chance to introduce these cutting-edge products such as the Russound X5 streamer and Garvan Drop speakers to potential new customers is a sales manager’s dream. I look forward to meeting customers old and new over the coming months.” Mike Bonnette, product director for The Multi-Room Company, adds, ”Matt displayed the sort of infectious enthusiasm that is rarely seen at interviews. It’s obvious he has a real passion for what he does, namely meeting people and providing the right solutions for their needs, and we are fortunate to have him on board to help us with our very significant business development objectives.” www.multi-room.com
