Prism Sound appoints Ian Crighton as its new CEO

Prism Sound Ltd has announced the appointment of Ian Crighton to the position of Chief Executive Office (CEO), with effect from December 5, 2005.
Crighton joins the company from National Instruments, where he achieved spectacular business growth over the past five years as Managing Director - UK and Ireland.
His specialist background is in Sales & Marketing, having enjoyed previous success as an Area Sales manager, rising to become UK Sales Manager in 1997.
Following four years’ technical training and education at the UK Atomic Weapons Research Establishment, Crighton followed a developing career in Engineering and Sales with scientific instrument manufacturers.
He joined National Instruments in 1989 and, with a small start-up team, pioneered the growth of its highly successful computer-based LabVIEW test product range in the UK market.
Commenting on his appointment, Prism Sound’s chairman Martin Jones said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Ian has joined us as CEO. His in-depth experience in Sales & Marketing complements the outstanding technical performance of Prism Sound professional audio products, whilst his highly successful track record of leading business growth in computer-based test & measurement systems will further accelerate the fast-growing sales success of our dScope and DSA-1 audio test systems. Most of all, his passion for enthusiastically empowering people will build on the ‘can-do’ culture already established in Prism Sound and lead us into our next exciting phase of growth.”
Graham Boswell, Prism Sound founder and Marketing Director, added: “Ian’s appointment reflects the transition of Prism Sound from a small cottage industry to a major player in the worlds of pro audio, broadcast and test and measurement. New sales personnel have already been recruited as part of our expansion programme and the company is now gearing up its operations to reflect new investment opportunities.”
Ian Crighton says that his main priority for Prism Sound will be to develop opportunities for growth and deliver even greater success to customers.
