To play a part in this growing portfolio and to ensure the consistency of deployment in the field is an exciting prospect.”

Orton’s appointment is the fourth for Martin Audio since September 2016, following Robin Dibble as Product Support Engineer, Bradley Watson as EMEA Account Manager and Bradley Stephens as US Southeast Regional Sales Manager. As Dom Harter, Managing Director, comments, “Martin Audio continues on the most ambitious product development drive in its history, and all of these guys bring the wealth of industry experience we need to push forward.”
