Orbital Welcomes New Recruit

Orbital claims to have turned up the sales volume with new recruit Richard Knott
Richard brings a new mix of product, installation and live-event expertise to Orbital Sound’s sales team.
Orbital Sound, the leading sound and communication systems specialist for the theatre, event and broadcast markets, has appointed Richard Knott to its growing sales team with immediate effect.
Joining Orbital from TMC in Bradford, Richard is responsible for general pro-audio sales at Orbital, working alongside the company’s other sales staff, under Sales Director Tom Byrne. Richard brings extensive pro-audio product knowledge, together with installation experience and live performance expertise.
Tom Byrne explained:
"Richard is an important addition to our company, and it’s great to have him on the team. He has a broad mix of skills – exactly what we look for in our staff – that combine highly relevant product knowledge with practical project work, ranging from broadcast to live sound. We will be using his sales skills to the maximum, extending his enthusiasm for d&b audiotechnik loudspeakers across our other brands, while assisting him to integrate with the wider Orbital team. We are sure that he will make a valuable contribution to the company – helping to drive our sales forward and ensure we can offer the most dynamic service to our customers."
Richard Knott commented: "I had always been impressed by Orbital’s track record, and first met the guys at a d&b international partner convention earlier this year. I was keen to work for a good d&b partner company, and felt that Orbital represented the most attractive option – when they contacted me about the new position, I was obviously delighted to hear! I’m looking forward to learning as much as possible about Orbital’s full product portfolio, and am keen to develop the installation side of the business."
While holding the post of Sales Manager at TMC, Richard was also involved with various installation projects, which included supervising a d&b audiotechnik Q-Series line-array loudspeaker system in the Baths Hall venue, Scunthorpe, as well as audio-visual installations at Millennium Square, Leeds and for BBC Manchester at MediaCity. Richard holds a BA (Hons) in Music Technology, and is an accomplished musician.
