Specialist distributor of pro audio and control products for the broadcast, post-production, live and touring markets, Aspen Media has appointed Anthony Wilkins to the newly created position of Sales Manager.

Wilkins has over 30 years of experience in the audio industry and has previously held a variety of positions with Sony, DTS, Linear Acoustic, RTW, Jünger Audio and Trinnov Audio. He is also a member of the AES, the IEEE and the EBU P/Loud group.

Chris Collings, Director of Aspen Media, says: “It’s no secret that our industry has faced a number of challenges in recent years, and other uncertainties look set to continue for some time yet. Nonetheless, Aspen Media intends to generate its own upturn, investing for the expected growth from new suppliers, products and platforms starting with the recently launched modular AoiP and MADI converters from DirectOut.

In particular, increasing adoption of IP and Cloud based services demands flexibility and agility to meet evolving customer requirements and Anthony’s strong background in all technical, marketing and sales aspects of the pro audio and broadcast industry will be invaluable as we expand our presence, and the profile of the new and current products.”

Wilkins adds: “It’s an exciting time to be joining Aspen Media as the company embarks on a plan to grow and diversify. The opportunities to develop business with existing and new suppliers are huge and I look forward to working with a great team and to building further on Aspen Media’s already impressive success”.
