Gomez moves to his new position from within the wider Focusrite Group, where he was GMM for Focusrite Pro. A marketing professional with a strong audio background who specialises in brand development and digital marketing, Gomez spent time with Pioneer Pro Audio developing an in-depth understanding of sound reinforcement, before his move into the world of networked audio, recording and post-production at Focusrite Pro.
Gomez commented: “The opportunity to return to the world of sound reinforcement and loudspeakers with not one, but two exceptional brands, is a unique and irresistible challenge, and one which I’m very excited to take on. With Optimal Audio, the chance to work on what is effectively an exciting start-up brand with an innovative edge in the commercial sector, dovetails brilliantly with the Martin Audio side of the role. An established market-leader like Martin Audio demands a different approach, but I’m looking forward to sharing my ideas and helping to maintain the brand’s position at the top of the professional audio sector.”
James King, Marketing Director for Optimal Audio and Martin Audio, added: “One of the many advantages of being part of the wider Focusrite Group is that we have been able to present opportunities across the brands for its employees to progress. Jamie is another great example of that, and I couldn’t be happier that he has joined the team. He has a bold outlook towards marketing that I know will go a long way to accelerating the rise of the fledgling Optimal Audio brand as well helping to freshen and further the more established Martin Audio.”
