With great sadness, Cadac Holdings Ltd., a UK-based manufacturer of mixing consoles for live sound, announces the sudden and tragic death of Mark Ray (pictured) at the age of 49. Ray died of a heart attack in the early hours of Monday, November 9, 2009, while visiting New York City. Ray joined Cadac in November 2000 and fronted Cadac's sales and marketing activity around the world for nine years.
Cadac's Bob Thomas says, "We are all devastated, losing a good friend as well as a colleague. Mark gave every element of his life, 100 percent, as a passionate advocate for Cadac, as a gifted musician and as an active contributor to the pro audio industry. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Mark's family and friends. All of us at Cadac will miss him enormously."
After serving in the army, Ray's career included spells at FCN, Gibson USA, Adam Hall and 3G, prior to joining Cadac.
Ray is survived by his two daughters, Nicola and Louise.
