Margie Kirby joins husband Rik Kirby at the helm of Allied Professional Technologies where she’ll be extending the companies services further into the marketing realm. With over 28 years of experience in the professional audio industry Kirby most recently held the post of Director of Marketing at Renkus-Heinz prior to which she held marketing and trade show management roles with TEAC’s Tascam division.

“At Allied Professional Technologies we provide a flexible approach to US distribution which we feel reflects the way the industry and supply chain have changed over the last 10 years or so,” explained Rik Kirby. “For Linea Research we operate as a full-service distributor while for Luminex we work as an extension of their existing North American operation. Now with Margie joining us we’ll be able to offer our partners increased marketing services both in the USA and in support of their global businesses.”

“I’m excited to ring in the new year with this next chapter in my career,” concluded Margie Kirby, “working with longtime industry friends and colleagues, and of course making new partnerships along the way. Catch up with us at NAMM where we’re exhibiting with both Linea Research and Luminex in the new pro-audio hall on booth #18105.”
