Marc Wilson appointed managing director at Glensound
Glensound has announced the appointment of Marc Wilson as managing director.
He succeeds Gavin Davis, who will remain with the company, founded by his late father Len, in the role of chairman.
Wilson is no stranger to Glensound, having worked at the Maidstone-based developer and manufacturer as sales and marketing manager between 2008 and 2016. After pursuing other interests within the broadcast technology industry, he returned to Glensound in 2019 as a director. This move was with the view of Marc becoming managing director in due course, which he did at the beginning of February this year.
Wilson commented on the appointment: “I am very enthusiastic about heading up Glensound, which is a 100 percent UK-owned organisation that designs and builds all its products in-house.
“Gavin, who will still be involved with the business, and his father before him established its reputation for reliable products, which all have developed from specific customer requests. I want to build on that and continue the development of technologies for commercial audio as well as broadcasting, with the emphasis on AoIP, which now accounts for approximately 90 percent of our business. I look forward to making people more aware of Glensound and the wide range of excellent products it has to offer.”
Wilson is committed to further expanding Glensound’s range of products, which include commentary units, headphone and microphone amplifiers, intercom and network audio systems, while also raising the company’s profile in its core broadcast market and adjacent sectors.
Glensound was founded in 1966 and soon established itself as a supplier of broadcast equipment, particularly for sports commentary, outside broadcasts and news production. As well as traditional broadcast, Glensound is now moving into other markets where good quality audio and fully featured network capability are priorities, including esports, live sound and commercial installation.
