UK-based professional monitor and audiophile speaker systems manufacturer PMC has appointed Tim Ireland (pictured above, right) to the position of Chief Executive Officer, overseeing all day to day operations of the company as it expands its product portfolio, UK distribution business and global distribution network. Peter Thomas takes up the role of chairman.

Ireland joins PMC after seven years as CEO of Meridian Audio and previously head of product development at Bowers and Wilkins. His appointment comes at a time of sustained growth for the privately owned business, that has seen its turnover increase considerably over the past five years and export markets grow to 55 countries.

In his capacity as CEO, Ireland will be in charge of the manufacturing and operations departments, sales and marketing, personnel and finance functions, plus the company’s US office in California. He will be responsible for managing the growth of PMC through continued improvements in products, quality and the speed and levels of service offered to customers, while at the same time maintaining the PMC family relationship with its staff and customers.

Making the appointment, Peter Thomas commented  “With Tim in charge, I can now concentrate on supporting the board as chairman, as we look to expand our manufacturing facilities and introduce the hand-building of the fenestria. I shall continue to work with my son, Oliver Thomas, who heads up the research and development into new technologies and products. I can also, finally, curate the PMC museum of landmark hi-fi products, of which we have a vast number, and I can also take some time to listen to the ever-growing stack of 78s, 33s, 45s, CDs and files!”     

Tim Ireland adds, “I have long admired the business that Peter and Adrian started and have watched the incredible rise in its profile, products and sales over the past few years. When Peter and the board invited me to apply for the position of CEO there was no hesitation on my part."
