Technical Audio Group (TAG) has appointed Mr Bryan Davidson as consultant liaison. Established in 1984, TAG is headquartered in Sydney and distributes Allen & Heath, Audio-Technica, Martin Audio and QSC throughout Australia. As a leading supplier of professional equipment for the concert touring, commercial and retail markets, TAG also has an office in Melbourne and territory managers in Brisbane and Perth.
Mr Davidson’s newly created role will enable TAG to develop closer relationships with the nation’s consultancy groups. Previously Bryan served in a similar consultant liaison role for A/V distributor Hills and prior to that as senior sales engineer for EVI Australia / APAC / Bosch Communications over a 25-year span.
‘During my time at EVI and Bosch, I was increasingly working with consultants who drew on my product knowledge to assist their system designs,’ explains Mr Davidson. ‘This is my specialist position and one which I most enjoy.’ Having developed a close friendship with TAG company founder Anthony Russo over 25 years, Mr Davidson has long admired the company’s virtues and the respect it has earned in the market. ‘Anthony and I worked on the very first NRL talkback systems almost 20 years ago, designing a system for linesmen to talk into their wireless transmitter equipped flags and be heard through the referees’ in-ear receiver. Anthony’s innovative and creative ideas were always well ahead of the game, pardon the pun.’
‘Having consolidated our product portfolio into four leading brands several years ago, TAG is now benefitting from that focus,’ explains Mr Russo. ‘We have a great and expanding team here and someone with Bryan’s experience, skillset and market knowledge is a wonderful opportunity for us. The personal relationships that Bryan has developed with Australia’s consultant community during his long and established career has earned him great respect.’
‘I’m re-energised to be working with a dedicated team of professional colleagues and surrounded by a raft of leading-edge products,’ furthered an enthusiastic Mr Davidson. ‘I’m especially excited about Q-Sys as it’s undoubtedly the leading AVC platform and to play a part in developing that with TAG promises to be very rewarding.’
