Pro audio and live sound expert Sam Simon-Norris has joined Sound Network as Assistant Sales Manager to help the company keep up with the continuing growth over the last two years.
Sam has a rich history in both the live and MI industries. He started work at Panic Music studios while studying Music Performance at university and developed an affinity with the technical side of sound while playing in numerous bands, gigging and recording in studios around London.
After three years at Panic he then joined LMC Audio Systems and applied his energy and enthusiasm to expanding on his audio knowledge. This included a range of interesting installations at universities around the country as well as taking popular east London venue Oval Space from their first digital desk, through to a complete digital Midas FOH/MON setup.
Sam joined the DPA Microphones distributor in January and has spent his first two months networking and training, culminating in a visit to the DPA Microphones factory in Denmark for product training and introductions.
On joining Sound Network he says, “It’s great to specialize in a few top brands that I’ve had quite a lot of exposure to in the past. My previous experience stems largely from the studio and live markets, so I’m excited about the opportunity to expand on my corporate sound knowledge and to start dealing with the broadcast, film and TV markets too.”
Director Pete Wandless values the great team dynamic in the company, saying, “Sam’s a great addition to the team, and brings great energy and experience which complements our plans for the future perfectly. I’m confident he will bring an opportune boost to Sound Network’s continued expansion”.
With 2016 set for continued growth of their brand portfolio, the addition of Sam to the team means the company can maintain the high levels of service and support its customers are accustomed to.
