Yamaha UK creates new AV Division, appoints industry veteran Ian Galloway

March 6th, 2011 · No Comments

Ian Galloway rejoins Yamaha UK as AV Division Director Yamaha Music UK has opened the doors of a dedicated Audio Visual Division and has appointed industry veteran (and my good chum) Ian Galloway as Divisional Director. Galloway (pictured above, left) played a pivotal role in the 1981 UK re-launch of Yamaha Hi-Fi, and helped form Yamaha Electronics UK in 1986. He went on to lead the company through the Nineties, during which time Yamaha became the UK’s dominant AV receiver brand.
The new group will encompass Hi-Fi, AV receivers, system products, home cinema speakers, digital sound projectors and desktop audio products. The company says the move shows its determination to expand Yamaha’s UK AV business, after losing share in recent years to Onkyo and others.
Of his return to the Yamaha fold full-time, Galloway says: “I am inspired and excited by my appointment; I think it makes a big statement to the industry as regards the future direction of Yamaha AV & Hi-Fi products. We have a great team and a brilliant R&D and product development plan. I also look forward to continuing to bringing Yamaha’s unique and distinctive musical heritage to our AV marketing activities.”
