Following a ballot of the members of The Clarity Alliance (an alliance of the best of the audio and video industries in the UK), Laurence Armstrong, managing director of Henley Designs, has been elected as the next chairman of the Alliance.
In order for the Alliance to be successful in its objective of raising the profile of the UK hi-fi and home cinema sector, it is essential that members of the industry come together and work on a common plan for growth. Laurence was extremely enthusiastic about this necessity when the plans for consumer facing campaigns were presented to him and pledged to offer Henley Designs’ help in whatever way it can assist.
Laurence succeeds Alan Sircom, as chairman of the Alliance. Alan took on the role during the formation and initial launch stages of Clarity, driving the creation of its constitution, planning its training and qualifications and overseeing the development of the first consumer facing campaigns. Alan will continue to serve on the board of directors in an ex-officio capacity during Laurence’s chairmanship.
Commenting on his new role, Laurence says, “I’m delighted to of been voted as the new head of the Clarity board. Having been involved in the hi-fi industry for many years, I’m proud to be a part of something that is designed to keep us all together, moving forward to a better, more successful future. I believe an industry body that represents all sectors of our community and promotes a symbiotic relationship between all parties is the key to a stable future.”
