Kii Audio has announced a new US office to deliver greater level of accessibility and service. This development is in response to the growing demand for Kii Audio products from US audio professionals and recording studios. The new initiative is headed up by industry veteran Tony Cariddi. Until recently Cariddi was Integrated Marketing Leader for Content Solutions, Industry Relations and Cinema Products at Dolby Laboratories and previously held marketing positions at Avid, Digidesign, and Apogee Electronics.
According to Kii Audio, the new US office will deliver best-in-industry support to Kii dealers, and provide first-class artist relations to audio professionals and studios. This development also marks an end to the distribution arrangement with Grace Design.
“Kii is an innovative company with exceptional products and a strong team in all phases of their business. All of us at Grace Design are happy that we could play a role in introducing Kii Audio to customers on this side of the pond. It’s now time for us to step back from our distribution duties and hand this back to Kii directly,” states Doug Wood, on behalf of Grace Design. “For Kii Audio customers who purchased products through a dealer during the distribution period, Grace will continue to provide service.”
Chris Reichardt, Kii Audio CEO says of the new US office. “We have been delighted with the response to Kii Three since launching just a couple of years ago and appreciate the work done by Grace Design. It is now clear we need a presence in the US to ensure both dealers and customers are supported during our ambitious growth plans in the next few years. Tony Cariddi is widely respected in the pro audio industry, and we know many will be delighted by his appointment.”
Tony Cariddi, Kii Audio North America Brand Manager, says; “Kii Audio is one of the few innovators in the pro and hi-fi speaker market driving monumental improvements in the field. I’m thrilled to support this smart and passionate team by increasing their accessibility and exposure in the US market. Invariably when audio pros and audiophiles have the opportunity to hear the Kii THREE speakers they are blown away — now we can make that opportunity happen more than ever before.”
In a relatively short space of time, Kii Audio has taken the professional audio industry by storm with their innovative Kii Three monitor speakers and more recently the BXT low frequency expansion.
