Mitchell & Johnson

The British Hi-Fi company has boosted its management team by appointing a new non-executive Chairman.

As a former MD of Sony UK and vice-president of Sony Europe, Haydn Abbott has vast experience of consumer and non-consumer electronics.

Commenting on his appointment, Abbot says, “When I first met with the board of Mitchell and Johnson I could tell it was a business with a very exciting future. The business owners have grasped the emerging market trends for hi-fi separates, streaming and portable audio and produced a product road map that firmly addresses the needs of the consumer. I look forward to contributing to the growth of this young company to help ensure its success.”

The team recently closed their funding round with Ruffena Capital, securing over £200,000 from 2 investors.
