CUK Audio Appoints Rich Soper as Brand Manager, Live Sound

CUK Audio has announced the appointment of Rich Soper (pictured) to the position of brand manager, live sound, with responsibility for sales and support of Cadac, Clair Bros., Cordial, dbTechnologies, Outline, Pivitec and Powersoft.

Soper has a background as a front of house engineer, working on tours, cruise liners and live events. He joins CUK Audio from Yamaha Commercial Audio where he held the position of regional manager and specialised in digital consoles, DSP and loudspeaker systems. Prior to that he worked for dbTechnologies UK and Amber Sound.

"The appointment of Rich is a major step for CUK Audio. It is a key element in the substantial commitment and investment we are making in terms of both sales and support in the ‘Live’ sector, and the direction the brand portfolio will take moving forward," explains CUK Audio’s MD, Stuart Thomson. "We have established a great portfolio of brands and believe Rich is the person with the right connections, knowledge and approach to take this to the next level and establish ourselves as a major player in this sector."

Thomson continues: "CUK Audio has predominantly been an ‘Integration’ focused distributor and now, eight years on, it’s time to fully commit to other sectors without detracting from our core business. With the recent changes to the brand portfolio and the addition of Rich, it places us in a strong position to contribute to this sector in a positive way."

"Rich shares our ethos of providing the best customer support and his wealth of experience, enthusiasm and attitude make him a good fit with our team," concludes Thomson. "I’m confident he’ll do a great job for CUK Audio and our customers."

Soper commented: "I am really excited to be joining CUK. The outstanding portfolio of brands that Stuart has combined gives me an unequalled opportunity to substantially grow our business and establish CUK Audio as a leader in the live sound sector."
