CLEVELAND — The Media Networking Alliance has named two new co-chairs of its Marketing Working Group, as current chair and Focusrite Audio Engineering employee Will Hoult is stepping down.
Angi Roberson, director of marketing at The Telos Alliance, and Martin Barbour, product manager installed systems at QSC Audio, will work together to promote the AES67 audio interoperability standard.
Roberson began her broadcaster career in sales and customer service at Pacific Research & Engineering in 1993. Roberson joined The Telos Alliance almost ten years ago, initially as trade show coordinator, she is now director of marketing. As director of marketing she oversees all aspects of marketing for the company’s radio division.
Barbour is an AV systems engineer, designer and installer. He joined QSC Audio in 2010 as product applications specialist, EAME. In his current role, he has moved Stateside to Boulder, Colo., overseeing all audio aspects of the Q-SYS platform.
“The expanding rate of uptake of AES67 is correspondingly increasing the workload of the alliance in promoting awareness and educational support of the interoperability standard among the professional audio, AV and broadcast industries, and in supporting the on-going work of industry professionals and standards’ bodies, like the AES and SMPTE. Angi and Martin are most ably equipped to ensure that we successfully manage that task,” said MNA Vice Chairman Terry Holton.
