Orbital Sound Inc.—which provides products, systems and design solutions for the broadcast, theater, event and entertainment markets, with operations in the UK and in the U.S.—recently appointed acclaimed entertainment industry professional Morag MacPherson (pictured) as Vice President of its U.S. operation. MacPherson is working closely with International Managing Director Chris Headlam to position the company’s successful brand in the U.S. market.
MacPherson’s outstanding track record and extensive theatrical experience will help drive Orbital forward, with the goal of becoming one of North America’s leading theatrical touring and resident theater sound system suppliers. She has a long history in road management, and was later appointed Director of Programming for Broadway Across America, Director of Professional and International Licensing for Theatrical Rights Worldwide, and Director of Industry Relations at Masque Sound.
“Morag brings a new dimension to Orbital as a recognized force in the theatrical world,” Headlam says. “Morag is extremely well-versed in all things audio, as well as commanding immense respect within theatre production, and she will be a great hands-on ambassador for Orbital. Morag has literally grown up in the business, mentored by her father, the late and highly respected theatrical manager and producer George MacPherson. We are hugely excited to bring her into our team at such an early stage in our development. She is going to play a vital role in helping us achieve our ambition to become a key supplier in the theater sound industry.”
“Orbital Sound is one of the most respected names in the international theatrical audio industry, and helping the firm establish its brand in the U.S. market is an exciting challenge,” MacPherson says. “It is an absolute pleasure to be joining Orbital at such a dynamic period in its growth, and I see my broad background in theatrical production complementing the company’s structure and aspirations. Orbital’s team is meticulously professional, with an unrivaled skill set in terms of technical expertise, careful project management and practical approach. I believe Orbital has an extremely strong future, and I look forward to contributing to its success.”
