Clapham brings to Source over 25 years experience in the music industry that include tenures as a Senior Regional Manager at Yamaha Music Europe (UK) GmbH, and as a Sales Manager for Marshall Amplification PLC.
In a statement, Source says: ‘In a newly-created position, Michael will assume responsibility for supporting and growing Source’s key accounts in the Midlands region, building on his excellent long-term working relationships with dealers in the area. Michael combines decades of management and retail experience with a lifelong passion for music and music technology. An accomplished guitarist and singer, Michael also co-owned and managed a busy commercial recording studio in Birmingham for many years, and maintains a broad and ever-expanding vinyl collection.’
Darren Power, Source Director of Sales and Marketing commented on the appointment: ‘We are incredibly pleased to have Michael joining us at Source, and are confident in the senior level skill set Michael brings with him. Importantly, we are giving a clear indication to the market place of our continued investment in resources and support to our dealer network.’
