Senior management changes at Chord Electronics
Chord Electronics has restructured its senior executive team, promoting Manufacturing Director Matthew Bartlett to the position of Managing Director.
The company said the move follows a period of unprecedented growth.
Bartlett – the firm’s longest-serving employee – will oversee all day-to-day aspects of the business, supported by his senior team.
Chord Electronics’ founder, owner and Chief Designer John Franks becomes Chairman, giving him more time to develop and engineer future products. He will continue to preside over the wider business but his new role will focus on design.
Commenting on his promotion to MD, Bartlett said: “Having worked across all departments over nearly 30 years, including building our earliest amplifiers for our first customer, the BBC, my time-proven understanding of the business will no doubt serve me well as the company moves forward with its exciting plans for 2020 and beyond.
“I am looking forward to co-developing our award-winning proprietary technology analogue and digital offerings for both consumer and Pro Audio as we move beyond our 30th anniversary celebrations this year and into a new decade of innovation.”
Chairman John Franks added: “It gives me enormous pleasure to announce Matthew as Managing Director. Having worked alongside me almost from day one, he is uniquely qualified to help strengthen the business in the future and brings unrivalled experience to the role.”
