Japan's Melco Audio has announced that Dan Raggett, the company's UK Sales Manager, has been promoted to General Manager effective immediately. This will see Dan taking overall responsibility for Melco's operations in several territories, with a focus on the UK.

Former General Manager and Melco Audio brand ambassador, Alan Ainslie, who has been at the helm of the company in the UK for seven years, will be spearheading the brand's distribution in the UK, with North America and parts of Europe following imminently. Alan brings with him valuable Melco expertise to surrey-based distributor Audiophile Digital Music Masters (ADMM) in his role as Managing Director.

Before joining Melco in 2018, Dan Raggett was the Southern Area Account Manager at Naim Audio for three years, where he was responsible for Naim Audio and Focal in southern England.

Commenting on his promotion, Dan Raggett told StereoNET:

I am very proud and excited to be taking on this role for Melco; I certainly have some very big shoes to fill. I want to give great thanks to Alan Ainslie for all the advice, training and mentoring he has given me over the past 18 months.

Outgoing General Manager Alan Ainslie added:

A project such as Melco is very much a team effort, involving lots of different engineering and commercial disciplines. Having spent a pleasant period of almost two years working with and coaching Dan, I am pleased that I can confidently hand over the reins, knowing that the Melco position can only continue to improve.

Although I am standing down from the role of General Manager, I will still be closely involved with the commercial side as I continue to run Audiophile Digital Music Masters (ADMM), the UK distributor for Melco. ADMM will soon be adding North America and some European territories to its Melco distribution, to ensure consistent branding and coordinated marketing activities, which will greatly help everyone.

All at StereoNET want to take this opportunity to congratulate Dan on his new position and wish Alan all the best in his role at ADMM.
