David ‘Webby’ Webster joins Coda team
Loudspeaker manufacturer Coda Audio has hired DiGiCo co-founder David “Webby” Webster as director of global marketing.
Webster has been a musician and a sound engineer in the course of a career that spans live performance and production. He then held roles at Klark Teknik and Midas, before co-founding DiGiCo where he was marketing director for many years.
Webster said: “Coda is undoubtedly defining a whole new generation of systems that not only sound incredible but have advantages that translate into tangible benefits for everyone involved in using them.
“My first listen to a Coda system blew me away - the quality is unbelievable - but what is just as captivating is that the sound is being produced by systems so light and compact that, by virtue of these qualities, they open new doors for say, lighting, video and stage show designers, as much as they do for audio engineers and road crew. It's the same on the installation side, where reduced size and weight are crucial issues in, for example, heritage buildings or houses of worship.”
Paul Ward, director of global business development at Coda Audio, said: "Combining impeccable marketing credentials with a strong technical grounding, Webby also possesses a genuine empathy with every stakeholder in the audio chain, from the stage to the front of house and with installers and production teams alike.”
