Jonny ClarkEntec is pleased to announce the recent appointment of Jonny Clark to the position of Head of Sound and Peter Eltringham as Senior Service Technician within the sound department.

Clark (right) has enjoyed a colourful career as a sound engineer for such diverse acts as The Magic Numbers, Athlete, Guillemots and Dry The River, and has most recently been developing his skills as a tour manager for Duke Special and production managing joint shows by Franz Ferdinand & Sparks (FFS). Originally a drummer, Clark entered the world of live sound in 2002 and later landed a position alongside John Willis at Belfast’s Production House. Ten years on, he is relishing the challenge of heading up Entec’s successful audio department.

“Having done many of the things a young engineer aspires to, such as touring Japan and America with some great acts, I reached the point in my professional life where I wanted to come off the road, put down some roots with my family and apply my knowledge and experience in a regular job situation,” says Clark. “Entec has always set a shining example, so I’m proud to be given this opportunity, and meeting and working with a new range of clients on a long-term basis is a very exciting prospect.”

“Audio technology has long been an all-consuming passion of mine, going back to well before I became a professional,” comments Eltringham,” and so working with Entec’s world class sound inventory – and particularly the digital networking side – is something I’m very much looking forward to.”

Noreen O’Riordan commented: “With their individual backgrounds in rock’n’roll and theatre, Jonny and Peter come to Entec with a wealth of complementary experience, and we are very fortunate to have them on our team. Their appointments are a further sign of our commitment to maintaining our leading reputation and we’re excited at the prospect of them continuing to provide top quality expertise to our existing clients as well as new ones.”
