PMC has appointed Ian Sutton to the position of divisional director, to head up a newly formed UK distribution business and bring close focus to this important area of expansion for the company. The following is from the PMC press release.

Sutton, who has spent the past 13 years working for Bowers & Wilkins, started in the newly created role on 3rd July and is based at the company’s head office, Holme Court, near Biggleswade.

PMC, which has long held the UK distribution rights for the Canadian electronics brand, Bryston, is reorganising its business structure in its home market to facilitate further distribution arrangements. During the first half of 2017 the company added the German high-end electronics brand, AVM, to its portfolio and announced the launch of the first PMC designed and built domestic amplifier, the cor integrated. Each of these product ranges, plus the UK loudspeaker sales, will be incorporated into the new UK distribution business, operating as a separate profit centre from the PMC manufacturing business.

Sutton will report directly to PMC’s owner and managing director, Peter Thomas, and will in turn have management responsibilities for the UK sales team, comprising the well-known figures of Tom Barron and Craig Sowerby. It is expected that the division will grow in numbers as the company is appointed to distribute additional brands in the UK market.

Commenting on his new role, Ian Sutton says, “It is very exciting to be appointed to this role within such a dynamic and forward thinking company. I have long admired PMC as a brand and as a company that’s not afraid to challenge the norm and this decision to increase the complementary brands on offer, and build a separate division, underlines that ‘go-getting’ attitude that is so much a part of PMC.” He continues, “The opportunity to manage the process of creating a new audio distribution business within the UK is one I am relishing. I am also looking forward to working with the existing team, which is so well respected throughout the country, and I know they will be keen for us to all work together to make a real success of the new venture.”

Adding his thoughts, Peter Thomas, says, “I am delighted that Ian has agreed to join us to help steer the new UK distribution business. His tremendous levels of experience and excellent rapport with the UK retail channel are sure to be of significant benefit to the business as we work to further increase penetration of the Bryston and AVM brands, plus the core PMC loudspeaker business. I look forward very much to working closely with Ian over the coming months and years as PMC enters this next chapter of its development.”
