RCF has announced a significant expansion of its UK operation, intended to add new impetus to the company’s sales drive into new market segments.
Central to the change is the appointment of Miles Brooke — who brings 20 years of experience in pro, commercial and consumer audio within the D&M Group.
Taking up the newly created position of regional sales manager (South), Brooke will focus on installed sound/commercial audio and rental & touring customers, while Mick Butler will continue to represent RCF in the North of England and Scotland.
Brooke's career has so far been dedicated to brand building Denon and Marantz, most recently as national sales and marketing manager with D&M Group’s professional division. Prior to the formation of D&M he worked with Denon distributors Hayden Laboratories, a company he joined in 1994.
His arrival at RCF will enable the long-serving Dean Davoile to step up to director of sales for the company's UK office. Davoile takes up the senior position as Phil Price, who originally set up the RCF UK operation exactly 25 years ago, takes up a new role as RCF international sales (Voice Evacuation Systems).
Price commented: “RCF has made considerable investment in designing all new electronics that are fully certified to EN54 standards — which will particularly impact on the DXT 3000 and DXT 9000 digital evacuation systems. I am relishing the opportunity to build on this momentum.”
He added, “We need to identify and work with distribution partners and system integrators specifically within Europe to capitalise on our position of being able to offer complete solutions — based on our long heritage in loudspeaker systems and our new EN54 electronics.”
All appointments apply with immediate effect.
