NTP Adds A North American Sales Director


In a strategic and focused effort to support broadcast audio sales in the U.S., NTP Technology is teaming up with industry veteran Kurt Howell.

He joins the company as Sales Director for North America and will work in close co-operation with NTP’s current distribution.

“This appointment builds on the recent success of the Penta audio conversion and routing product range for broadcast applications in the North American market,” NTP Technology Sales Director Mikael Vest said. “Kurt is a highly respected industry veteran who knows the pro-audio and broadcast business inside out. I am convinced that he will significantly strengthen our presence towards our customers and sales channel partners. He has a particularly strong understanding of IP audio networking, including Dante. With an increasing number of broadcasters, production studios and post facilities exploring AoIP, Kurt’s appointment is a perfect match.”

Howell added, “NTP Technology with its DAD brand is globally recognised both for its pristine audio conversion quality and the MTRX audio interface developed for Avid. My key priority will be to build on the success of the DAD brand and the Penta audio conversion and routing product line to assist North American broadcasters in their move towards IP audio. We will be promoting the modular flexibility and proven reliability of the NTP Penta conversion and audio-routing platform. Integrating Dante with existing formats such as SDI, AES and MADI is the key to a successful transition to AoIP. The Penta platform is the perfect vehicle for making this happen smoothly and efficiently.”

Howell is located in Florida.

He joins NTP Technology from Focusrite Pro, where he was National Sales Manager for the US and Canada.
