Manley Laboratories, Inc. Appoints New International Sales Director
April 9, 2018 - Chino, CA. USA - Manley Laboratories, Inc., manufacturer of high end recording studio equipment and vacuum tube based audiophile products has appointed longtime associate Jean-Baptiste Lierre as its new International Sales Director. Mr. Lierre will manage all export accounts for Manley Labs in a new effort to coordinate and consolidate pricing, service, and marketing activities for Manley’s dealers around the world. “JB” Lierre, former founder and general manager of Juke Box Limited France, joins Manley Labs with vast international commercial experience stemming from his many years as importer and distributor for Manley in France and for other brands in Europe.
JB Lierre has been in the professional audio business for over thirty years, starting as the age of 21 in London as a sound engineer, then working for Hilton Sound in the early 1990’s, at the time the largest Pro Audio Rental company in Europe, to finally set up his own distribution company in Paris, France in 1995. The portfolio of brands imported and distributed by Juke Box Limited France was decidedly “high end” and Manley was an early part of Juke Box’s success. Juke Box Limited France ceased trading in January 2015 and JB has been a freelance consultant in the pro audio industry since then.
“EveAnna Manley and I have been best friends for over 20 years and have always combined work and passion for our shared hobbies, namely our love for audio and motorcycles,” JB shared. “Today is a great example of this continuing relationship and I feel honoured to be able to work alongside EveAnna within Manley Labs.”
Manley’s President EveAnna Manley added, “There is nobody I would trust more than JB to come on board to handle this huge responsibility of managing our export market. I have been doing this for so many decades and I really need help to grow and enhance our international relationships.”
JB and EveAnna will be at the 2018 MusikMesse in Frankfurt in Hall 4.1 Booth F32 to greet our customers and dealers. JB can be reached at:
