Audiotonix expands its Financial and Acquisition team by appointing new Chief Financial Officer and Mergers & Acquisitions Director
Anthony Booker appointed as new Group CFO, with former CFO James Barton moving to newly created Mergers & Acquisitions role
Audiotonix has announced two key senior appointments as the company strengthens its executive team. Anthony Booker comes onboard as the new group CFO with former CFO James Barton heading up the company’s growing M&A activities as M&A Director.
Anthony comes to Audiotonix with over 20 years senior financial experience having worked across all aspects of finance operations with corporate and private equity stakeholders. He was previously CFO at Global – Outdoor and Exterion Media, leading players in the Out-of-Home advertising and media industry.
Building on the company’s M&A initiatives, former Audiotonix CFO James Barton has transitioned to the new role of Mergers & Acquisitions Director. Having guided the company through several phases of PE investment as well as the acquisitions of Group One, Solid State Logic and KLANG:technologies, James (JB) will now focus 100% on future M&A strategy.
James Gordon, Audiotonix CEO, is clear on the benefits the expanded teams experience and knowledge will bring. “As a group, Audiotonix can see exciting times ahead and to capitalise on those opportunities we have broadened our management team to add new knowledge and focus. With JB’s background in M&A, having him lead our initiatives in this space was the obvious next step. To replace JB was always going to be tough but to find a CFO with Anthony’s personality and experience, having overseen several successful PE transactions, will prove invaluable as we continue to grow”.
On his new role, Anthony comments “Becoming part of the Audiotonix team and helping execute their growth strategy is a unique and challenging opportunity. From our initial meetings it was very clear my previous experience and knowledge are a great fit, and I’m excited by the prospect of working with such renowned audio and entertainment brands.”
