 •

Lenbrook, the parent company of audio brands Bluesound, NAD Electronics and PSB Speakers, has announced a new senior team and leadership transition intended to guide the company toward future growth, brand leadership in high-performance audio and ongoing success of its high-res, multi-room platform BluOS.

John Banks, chief brand officer, and Dean Miller, president and CEO, Lenbrook Americas, will be transitioning from full-time operational positions to become members of Lenbrook’s International Board where they will carry on in strategic planning and relationship building roles.

Banks and Miller worked with Lenbrook president and CEO Gord Simmonds for over a year to put this new senior team in place.

Lenbrook’s new core leadership roles have been identified from within the company and will operate from Lenbrook’s global headquarters just outside Toronto, Canada.

Lenbrook's New Senior Management Team:

June Ip will become vice president, marketing for Lenbrook International. In this position, Ip will lead all Lenbrook’s brand and distribution marketing initiatives.

David Cain will become vice president, sales and commerce with overall responsibility for global sales and distribution, product management and customer service across the brands. Cain is currently based in London, where he has served as Bluesound’s director of sales, key markets. He will be relocating to Toronto.

Agata Mossop will take on a newly-created role as Lenbrook International’s vice president, channel development. Mossop will also provide brand management for “non-Lenbrook owned” audio distribution in North America, currently consisting of Bang & Olufsen PLAY and Tivoli Audio.

“Succession planning, longer range management development and team building are important parts of our company’s culture,” says Simmonds. “As some of our valued leaders take a step back from their daily operational responsibilities, we have put ourselves in the fortunate position to be able to promote talented individuals that can capably assume the reins of leadership at Lenbrook. We have no doubt that these changes will bring an infusion of fresh energy and new ideas to continue us on our successful path.”

The company is also recruiting for a North American sales manager to lead sales development of Lenbrook owned and non-Lenbrook owned brands throughout the U.S. and Canada. Interested parties should contact Heather White hwhite@lenbrook.com.
