Following the acquisition by Solotech, SSE Audio Group has appointed David Kinna to the new role as Director of Finance in the UK.
In a move that reflects the growth of the company SSE Audio Group has created the new role of Director of Finance. Based in Redditch David Kinna will oversee the financial operations of the Groups UK and European operations.
David Kinna has over twenty years’ experience in industry accountancy, having previously held a number of finance roles in the food and automotive industries. “My background is with companies of a similar size to SSE Audio Group, albeit in very different fields to Pro Audio. The world of rock n roll is a niche market, so finding a finance director with experience in this sector for a company the size of SSE would have been a tall order. However, the world of finance gives you experience that is very much transferable and I look forward to bringing my skill set to this industry.”
SSE MD John Penn explained the reasoning behind the new role: “As SSE has grown over recent years it was something we had been looking at for a while. Then with the acquisition by Solotech they were keen to have somebody solely focussed on the financial aspect of the business. This was the obvious time to make the appointment and provides a conduit between the Solotech board and the SSE management team.”
David Kinna is very much relishing the challenge of his latest career move: “I’m a music lover so I see this as a very exciting place to be and I am looking forward to getting a greater understanding of the business. The growth in recent years has been exceptional, and now with the backing of Solotech I look forward to helping them to take the company to the next level.”
