Having spent much of his long-spanning career in the pro recording and pro audio distribution industries, Dunne also has experience in managing large and complex projects and a track record in generating revenue growth.
In his new role he will work to develop sales opportunities across multiple market verticals, including studio, post-production, broadcast, education, immersive and high-end domestic audio installation.
“I’m really pleased to join the PAD Group as sales and marketing director,” said Dunne. “My role will be key in establishing new and nurturing existing partnerships in the EMEA region, which are critical to our growth. There are exciting times ahead for our brands, and I’m very much looking forward to getting started.”

My role is to not only support our existing dealer network in the EMEA region, but to bolster the brand with new dealers in central locations and grow our artist roster by further developing our ambassador program.”
PAD Group president, Dave Malekpour, commented: “Robbie brings a wealth of sales experience as well as a true passion for audio, which makes him the perfect fit for this role and our team. We’re looking forward to working together to grow our brands’ presence in the EMEA region.”
