Los Angeles, CA, August 4, 2014 – Focusrite announces the appointment of industry veteran Kurt Howell to the position of RedNet Eastern Regional Manager. The announcement further emphasizes the growth and expansion of RedNet in the U.S. RedNet is Focusrite’s range of modular Ethernet-networked interfaces based around the industry-standard low-latency Dante® audio networking system.
In his new position, Howell, who is based in Nashville, Tennessee, will work closely with prospective RedNet customers in conjunction with product specialist Ted White to continue to drive sales with Eastern U.S. dealers, contractors and reps. Howell’s involvement will help RedNet continue its ongoing penetration as the standard for a networked audio solution for recording studios, higher education, television production, post-production, and live sound installations.
With an impressive background in the music industry, Howell brings to Focusrite a unique skill set, having worked for both manufacturers and retailers in the pro audio market sector.

Additionally, he helped establish Vintage King Nashville and most recently he was an account manager with Guitar Center Professional.
“Kurt Howell has a rich history in both pro audio manufacturing and pro audio retail,” stated Phil Wagner, President of Focusrite Novation Inc. “His extensive background makes him uniquely qualified not only to drive sales in the Eastern United States, but also to work closely with, and reinforce our unparalleled commitment to, our new customers and dealer network. Being based in Music City is an added bonus, as Nashville has so many studios and entertainment venues that are all potential RedNet end users. We are pleased Kurt is coming on board at this time, as RedNet is on the move!”
