Austin Freshwater becomes DiGiCo MD

Austin Freshwater has been appointed as the next managing director of digital audio mixing console supplier, DiGiCo, effective immediately.

The directors of DiGiCo’s parent company, Audiotonix – which also oversees entertainment technology brands Allen & Heath, Calrec, DiGiGrid, Group One Limited, KLANG:technologies, Solid State Logic, and newly acquired Sound Devices – made this decision, in part, thanks to Austin’s performance against the unpredictable landscape of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We were talking about Austin moving into the MD position just before Covid-19 hit, by which time it didn’t feel right for me to run off into the hills,” says long-serving MD James Gordon, who had held the role for the past 14 years. “I don't think it would have sent the right message to our customers and teams.”
