UK loudspeaker manufacturer PMC has realigned its corporate structure to accommodate ongoing expansion, giving the company a formal board structure for the first time in its 30-year history.

Owner and founder Peter Thomas is company as Chairman, with former Group Finance Director Jeff Willcocks appointed as CEO. Also on the board – reflecting PMC’s family-owned business status – are Thomas’s son Oliver as Commercial Director and Tom Loader, son of PMC co-founder Adrian Loader, as Operations Director.

Jeff Willcocks and Peter Thomas‘PMC is expanding fast, and it is not feasible to expect one person to have intimate knowledge of every aspect of the business,’ Peter Thomas says. ‘Having a formal board of directors allows us to tap into the huge pool of expertise that already exists within the company, and across many different areas of our operation.’

As CEO, Jeff Willcocks brings extensive knowledge of leading and improving organisational performance. Prior to joining PMC in 2018 as Group Finance Director, he held positions as MD, Non-Executive Director, Finance Director and as President of a US-based business. He is now responsible for managing the day-to-day running of PMC, and work with all company stakeholders, including customers and suppliers, to develop and improve overall performance.

Oliver Thomas, who has overseen new product design for the past seven years, takes on the wider role of Commercial Director so that he can develop strong links between PMC products and the market. In recent months he has been the driving force behind PMC Studio London, the company’s recently opened Dolby Atmos music mixing suite that is being used to demonstrate its professional loudspeaker products. In his new role, he will continue to oversee new product development and further the technological advances in loudspeaker design for which PMC is renowned.

Tom Loader’s role as Operations Director will see him supervising PMC’s UK manufacturing base, which was significantly expanded in October 2020 with the opening of a second factory in Bedfordshire. This plant is dedicated to production of PMC’s CI monitor series.

‘We are very proud of the fact that PMC is a British manufacturing success story, and also proud that it is still the close-knit, family-orientated business Adrian and I set up in 1991,’ Peter Thomas says. ‘But family connections and audio experience are only part of the story. For PMC to thrive, it also needs strong management and a forward thinking point of view. These changes give it that structure and I am confident that PMC will continue to go from strength to strength.’
