Steve Hutt named Wharfedale Pro director of R&D

WORLD: Continuing to reassert the Wharfedale Pro brand within the market, International Audio Group (IAG) has announced the appointment of Steve Hutt as director of R&D. A 30-year veteran of the professional audio industry, Mr Hutt’s tenure with the company reportedly began in mid-2015 but has only recently been made official.

A well known figure within the industry, Mr Hutt chairs AES standards and technical committees on loudspeakers, has authored numerous AES technical papers and holds 15 patents. He has previously spent time in both technical and leadership roles at companies including Harman Professional, THX and Eighteen Sound.

‘Steve actually joined Wharfedale Pro in 2015 and we're thrilled to bundle this strategically delayed news along with the tangible results shown since he took over R&D,’ enthused IAG director Tim Chang. ‘With 29 new speaker products to be unveiled at Pro Light & Sound, we have never before had such an array of fantastic new products on our booth.’

‘As a division of IAG, Wharfedale Pro is in a unique position with its extraordinary vertical integration where we build not just the box and speaker, but “everything” in house,’ commented Steve Hutt. ‘Very few pro audio systems companies still manufacture their own woofers and compression drivers let alone cones, spiders, voice-coils and HF domes – not to mention amplifiers and DSP electronics. We are releasing numerous new products this year, leveraging this in-house capability to bring a new level of high performance systems to the Wharfedale Pro catalogue.’
