German broadcast manufacturer Lawo has opened a subsidiary in the United Kingdom. It has also added to its sales and support team with new appointments.
The company welcomes Kadhim Boyd, pre-sales and systems engineer and James Walker, solution architect. Olivier Hough and Devin Workman have also joined Lawo as sales managers.
Based in the U.K. offices, the company says the new hires will bring a “new quality of customer relationship” to the country through their expertise and years of commercial and practical sales engineering and support experience.
“Lawo is investing heavily in the U.K. as part of a drive to keep up with increasing activity and opportunity in the area of IP processing and distribution, and management of IP-based media workflows,” said Craig Newbury, director of Sales and Operations, UK and Ireland. Newbury heads the new team.
Boyd previously worked as senior engineer, technical sales manager and principal systems engineer at Snell; Walker as head of system architecture and delivery – live production and infrastructure at Grass Valley; Hough as UK and Ireland strategic sales manager for Vitec production solutions; and Workman at HHB Communications/Scrub, where he specialized in the supply and support of Avid Pro Tools and S6 consoles, Dolby Atmos systems, and Audio-over-IP solutions for film and TV audio postproduction.
