matt-and-dirk-bx-usaANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA: high-quality audio plug-in developer and analogue
modelling specialist Brainworx is proud to announce that it has appointed former
President of Universal Audio, Inc. Matt Ward as CEO of its newly-formed US
division, Brainworx USA, as of January 20…

Prior to his ten-year-tenure in executive management at Universal Audio, Ward worked in product management for other prominent companies in the professional audio and music industries, including Studer Revox, Otari, and E-mu Systems. More recently, he has served as a strategic advisor to other notable companies such as Manley Labs and PreSonus.

As of now, Ward will be focusing on developing new business opportunities and assisting with distribution and marketing efforts for both Brainworx and its American sister company, Plugin Alliance, in the US. Ward will also be working directly with Brainworx Germany CEO Dirk Ulrich on growth strategies for the entire Brainworx family of companies.

“I am proud and excited to announce both the formation of Brainworx USA and Matt Ward
taking up its CEO position,” pronounces Ulrich. “Matt has been a friend and mentor of mine for several years, and, following his work with Universal Audio and beyond, he is the perfect fit for Brainworx with his widely-spread contacts and the respect he has gained for himself in the pro audio industry.”

For Ward, the feeling is mutual: “Brainworx has rapidly risen through the ranks to become a market leader in plug-in development. The passion that they have for high-quality audio is readily apparent in their products. There is tremendous potential for growth, and I’m excited by the possibilities. Dirk Ulrich and I have been friends for years. It’s going to be a lot of fun to see all those ideas we’ve talked about taking shape.”

Having already started Brainworx USA, February 2014 sees new CEO Ward and Brainworx owner Ulrich opening a new office in Scotts Valley, California to assist with focusing on business development and growth strategies.
