I have more than 30 years of experience in the field of hifi and music industry
having started in 1981 as European marketing manager for Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) in the UK
taking over global marketing director in 85. After the death of the founder John Bowers i took over the majority shareholding of the company running B&W as the MD. In a joint venture with our US distributor
Joe Atkins joined the company and took over B&W in 1997 after I decided to sell my shares. My love for music led to the creation of two labels and in 2000 moved to South Africa where in 2003 I helped in forming the new high end reference loudspeaker company Nautilus run by Philip Guttentag (ex SA distributor) and the formidable expert in acoustic and friend - Laurence Dickie - responsible for most of the groundbreaking inventions like Nautilus and Matrix that catapulted B&W in the orbit of international fame. Since 2004 Dickie has introduced a number of award winning high end speakers for his company VIVID AUDIO especially the model GIYA G1 - the new reference. In 2009 my son and I returned to my hometown Lucerne in Switzerland where I took over the distribution and sales of the VIVID AUDIO brand and other excellent brands. www.vividaudio.ch or www
