Soundcraft Studer Appoints Alan Wright to new Quality and Continuous Improvement Role
December 30, 2010
Soundcraft Studer has promoted Alan Wright, previously UK R&D Manager, to the role of Quality and Continuous Improvement Manager, reporting directly to Andy Trott, Vice President & General Manager of HARMAN’s Mixing and Microphones & Headphones Business Unit.
Trott says, “We pride ourselves on the levels of quality and ingenuity across our businesses but we also have a mantra of continuously improving everything we do; however large or small that improvement might be. It is Alan’s role to drive the business on all fronts of quality, ISO, process improvements and Green initiatives; we consider these to be business imperatives, hence why this function reports directly to me.“
Wright joined HARMAN in 1995 with BSS Audio then moved to Soundcraft under the same roof in Potters Bar. He has an MBA from the University of Hertfordshire.
“During the past few years running Engineering Services, and latterly R&D here, we have made huge strides in production efficiencies, speed of new product introduction and quality levels,” Wright says. “We regard quality, ISO, and GreenEdge as absolute brand imperatives and it’s my job to ensure we continuously improve in every area of the business.”
