Renkus-Heinz, a manufacturer of premium professional loudspeakers, has appointed Graham Hendry to the position of Vice President of Strategic Development. The role places Hendry in a position to develop and execute the creative vision in both product and market development – a key role as the company continues to expand and constantly innovate to help partners place sound precisely where they want it.
Hendry’s professional background encompasses engineering, product management and customer facing roles – a unique blend that has allowed him to take on the responsibility for both developing product lines and bringing them to market.
“My entire career has been focused on premium audio solutions, mainly in the loudspeaker world,” Hendry said. “Because of that, joining Renkus-Heinz is a real honour, as well as a natural progression. They’re a true technology leader in the space. That said, the development of my career has led me to discover that I very much enjoy dealing with people, and that is also a big part of the draw of Renkus-Heinz. I believe their team is among the best when it comes to putting the customer first. I am very much looking forward to be a pivotal part of that.”
The majority of Hendry’s career was spent with Tannoy and TC Group, where he began on the research and development engineering team in 1990. After a stint in commercial integration from 1998 to 2002, he returned to Tannoy – and the brand’s ownership teams at TC Group International and later, Music Group – in roles including Engineering Director, Business Development Director, Vice President of Solutions, and Brand Leader.
“Graham brings a wealth of experience and he will play a critical role in both our strategy development and the execution of that strategy,” said Matt Czyzewski, President of Renkus-Heinz. “He will be heavily involved in product development and market development. We’re excited to have him on-board.”
