Audio Brands Australia snags Jeff Shoesmith

Hills SVL retrenched its two senior audio guys by making their positions redundant last year – and now they have joined together to do for themselves what they did for the publicly listed company. Jeff Shoesmith (pictured) has joined Audio Brands Australia founder Don McConnell. They will be together again, this time on CX Roadshow probably across the aisle from their former employer.

The statement reads as follow:

Audio Brands Australia is pleased to welcome Jeff Shoesmith in the role of Sales Engineer. Jeff is well known and highly respected in the audio and AV integration markets, having worked with The PA People, Jands and Hills SVL during his 25 years in the industry.

Don McConnell, Director of Audio Brands commented: “I’m very pleased to welcome Jeff to the company. I have known Jeff for a long time, going way back to his system tech days at The PA People. Jeff has that rare combination of being highly technical, yet being able to clearly communicate and share that knowledge. He is 100% customer focused and I’m excited to have him on-board.”

Jeff added: “Audio Brands is a company with a passion for audio. I share that passion and am really looking forward to working with Don and his customers.”
