KV2 is thrilled to kick off the New Year with news of the appointment of seasoned industry professional, Robert Adrian Tan, to the post of Director of Sales, Asia. Based in Singapore, Tan brings over 20 years of experience as an AV consultant in the hospitality and events industries before moving into systems integration. Tan specialises in designing systems for acoustically challenging environments, be it in the live events or installed sound sector and is also a skilled business manager.
“It’s an honour to be representing KV2 in the APAC region,” says Tan. “I’ve long admired their technology and their approach to acoustics which, in my view, sets them apart from their competitors. I was introduced to the brand in 2010 and was immediately intrigued by the clarity of the ES1.0 cabinets. Since then, the product range has continued to develop with more options for a wide variety of applications. I have achieved some of the best results in my career using KV2 equipment although I’m often asked to defend my choice. However, in my experience, once the client has heard a demo, all his questions are answered! I’m delighted to become part of the KV2 family and take an active part in the next chapter of their development in Asia.
“While KV2 has a certain presence in the region, I’m confident that I can continue to elevate the brand to even bigger and better things,” he continues. “Opportunities don’t just happen – you create them with hard work and passion – and that’s exactly what I intend to do for KV2 – create opportunities.”
KV2 Audio CEO, George Krampera Jr., is delighted to welcome Tan on board. “It’s been over two years since the untimely passing of our friend and colleague, Dave Croxton, and we still miss him every day,” says Krampera. “However, David and I had already talked about Robert, and we both felt that he would be a great fit for the KV2 family, both professionally and as a person. Covid slowed everything down of course, but once we were able to start recruiting again, Robert was an obvious choice. His knowledge of the region and his network of contacts are enormous, as are his technical and business skills. Coupled with his adaptability, enthusiasm and passion for the brand, I’m sure that Robert will be able to take KV2 to the next level in Asia.”
