BREAKING NEWS: Paul Clarke Resigns From Interdyn
Australia’s AV distributor market has today seen a major shake-up, following the resignation of Interdyn Growth Markets Leader and industry veteran, Paul Clarke, less than twelve months after his exit from Audio Active.
Mr Clarke joined Interdyn around June 2018, and was formerly the General Manager of Audio Active – as flagged by ChannelNews several weeks early.
Considered one of Australia’s most “formidable audio-visual sales executives“, Clarke is credited with starting Audio Active with Jeremy and Richard Bouris in 2009.
“To look ahead, one also has to look back, and at this time I’d like to take the opportunity to thank the fantastic team at Audio Active for my nine years of success and fun in the market,” said Clarke at the time of his departure.
“We’ve maintained a good competitive relationship for five or so years now, and I’m overjoyed to be able to bring him on board,” remarked Interdyn Director, Sam Encel, in May last year.
Mr Clarke has today tendered his resignation, effective immediately, with his last working day Monday April 15, 2019.
Disclosed in a press release, Clarke asserts his resignation was conducted in a “completely open” and “completely professional manner”, attaching his exit letter “for absolute transparency.”
“As discussed, for the various reasons why certain elements of our mutual planning did not eventuate, this is now history, however the brands Monitor Audio and Artnovion are in very good shape and poised for significant growth,” his letter reads.
“I have decided to leave these brands now in the good hands of Interdyn and your very talented team and offer my resignation effective immediately with my last working day being Monday 15th April, 2019 as mutually agreed.”
“I wish all at Interdyn continued success and prosperity”
“As far as my future goes, I look forward to the next chapter in my life, whatever that may be!”
Locally, Interdyn distributes brands such as Pro-Ject, Monitor Audio, Artnovion and Rotel with its customer base spanning JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, and several specialist retailers.
