Systems Group Expands At Shure Distribution UK

News Image
The Systems Group at Shure Distribution UK is expanding with the addition of Andrew Francis as Senior Applications Engineer and Richard Knott as Project Manager.

The new employees have been taken on in response to the growing demand for Shure conferencing audio technology following the launch of products such as the Microflex Advance networked mic array and in advance of the launch of the forthcoming IntelliMix P300 Audio Conferencing Processor.

Andrew Francis has a decade of AV experience covering both installed systems and live events. During this time he has worked with politicians and business leaders, as well as other high-profile public figures such as His Holiness The Pope, while producing conferences, awards events and gala dinners. On the installation side he spent three years as a technical manager designing and commissioning AV systems for large corporate installations, specialising in multipurpose flexible meeting rooms.

In his new role, Andrew is a product specialist for Shure's Microflex Advance, Microflex Wireless, QLX-D, ULX-D and Axient Digital platforms. He will also offer technical support in the pre-sales and commissioning phases of larger projects, and will take an active role in industry education through Shure Audio Institute events.

Andrew said: "There aren't many companies that have the history and reputation Shure enjoys in its core industry. I'm delighted to join the Systems team at a time when Shure are moving into new markets with the incredible MXA910 ceiling array microphone, and with the introduction of Shure's first DSP product, the P300, this will only continue.

"I've always enjoyed pushing the boundaries of what technology can do for the AV industry, and I think Shure share that passion, which makes it a great place to work."

Richard Knott also comes from an AV background with a focus on installed sound, having carried out roles at manufacturer and distributor level. Prior to joining Shure he was Business Development Manager at White Light, managing AV system design and project sales across a range of markets. As Project Manager, Richard is responsible for relationship building between Shure, end users and consultants in the Systems market, focusing on conference audio, meeting rooms, and multi-divisible spaces.

Richard added: "Now is an exciting time to be part of the Systems Group, as Shure's presence continues to grow in the corporate market. The company has a rich history of audio solutions of the highest quality, and an excellent UK team as well as global support. I'm very pleased to be a part of Shure and I look forward to working to deliver our aims and goals."

SDUK Systems Group Manager Duncan Savage said: 'We are thrilled to have Andrew and Richard on board. Microflex Advance has proved hugely popular since its launch in 2016 and, with their knowledge and experience, they will be invaluable as we continue to develop the Shure product portfolio and deliver innovative solutions to the market."
