Martin Audio has announced "with great sadness" the passing of their European account manager, Andy Weingärtner, who passed away over Easter.

Luke Ireland, managing director of Martin Audio, said: “It was a huge shock to all of us. Andy was always an exuberant member of the team, and even before he joined Martin Audio he was a long term supporter. He will be greatly missed.”

With more than 28 years’ experience in sales and marketing, covering all aspects of pro audio, Weingärtner was well known to the industry, especially in his native Germany. He is survived by his wife Sandra and their four sons.

A private memorial service will take place on Saturday, April 11th in his hometown of Worpswede, where long term friend and colleague Andrew Davies will represent Martin Audio. Paying tribute, Davies said, “Andy was one of the audio industry’s good guys, anyone who was fortunate enough to know him will miss him and his loss leaves a unique hole in the industry for many of us.”

Ireland added, “We hope the whole industry will join us in extending thoughts and prayers to the Weingärtner family, and our special thanks to them for letting Andy be a part of our lives too.”
