    Interested in working for Headstock Group? Here are a few words from some of the Headstock Team

    • Roger Williams

      In 1986 I started work for Laney Amplification as the only sales rep, selling to music shops all over the U.K. and Ireland. In 1989 Laney acquired HH Electronics so I morphed to selling amplifiers and speaker boxes to the BBC and various Pro-Audio companies as well. In the late ‘90s we took on distribution for Ibanez and TAMA, so I started to sell guitars and drums as well – nothing if not adaptable . . .

      I became the International Sales Manager in 2009 and now cover S.E. and Central Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and North America. I have been lucky to visit parts of the world I would never have dreamt of seeing, meeting some wonderful people, and making some life-long friends. We are a close-knit team – more like a family really, of which I appear to be the aged uncle – and we have been known to enjoy a few beers together . . .

    • Adrian Webb

      In September 2022 I celebrate 40 years of employment with Laney/Headstock. I completed my 1st year City & Guilds for Carpentry at West Bromwich College way back in 1982. I was interviewed by Lyndon Laney for a cabinet maker role and Lyndon suggested I could have a bright future with the Company, and he certainly kept this promise: My position with Laney matured very rapidly, as did the growth of the business, and I became Mechanical Production Manager.

      Almost 20 years ago we purchased a design-built distribution centre for Headstock Group suitable for our distribution business growth and I became Warehouse Manager for the site. Where’s the time gone?

      I met and married my wife Michele in 1985 at Laney and this year we celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary. What a fabulous life I’m living!

    • Luke Rickett

      After working for 25 years in MI Retail Management, I joined the Headstock team in late 2019.

      I’m a guitarist and bass player, having been a massive fan, and player, of Laney Amps and Ibanez guitars since the 90’s.

      As the Guitar & Backline Key Account Manager for the UK & ROI, it is my job to work with top retailers, ensuring sales of product, quality of service and training is provided for the end user. I also work closely with our Purchaser, AR Manager and Marketing Director, who help support the service we can provide to our customers.

      The Headstock team are dedicated and passionate, providing years of experience and expertise in our industry, I couldn’t ask for better support. Working for a company with such a rich heritage in amplification and music history is simply amazing! I’m very lucky to have been able to turn my lifelong passion for music, guitars, and amplifiers into my day job.

      Headstock, are a company whose products are conceived, designed, and built by musicians for musicians. As a musician, who can ask for more than that?

    • Ian Aguado-Bush

      The 13th of April 2015 was the day I started as Percussion Brand Manager at Headstock Distribution working with TAMA Drums and Zildjian Cymbals, two brands I have played my entire drumming life! Three days later, I found myself at the Frankfurt Musikmesse: Talk about being thrown in the deep end! However, it was fine because I had an amazing support team around me and I could not have been made to feel more of a team member, it was incredible!

      Having been a drummer all my life, getting the opportunity to work with biggest brands in the industry is a dream, and waking up each day doing knowing I get to talk about drums all day is something I can’t even describe. By my very nature I am an entrepreneur and have a huge passion and drive to improve and grow, brands and businesses. When I joined Headstock, this is exactly what I wanted to do, and over my seven years, this is what I feel I have done.

      The support network inside the business is incredible and I know that if I ever have an issue, I have someone who will listen. I very much look forward to the next seven years working with more brands.

    • Duncan Boniface

      Combining my passions for music, engineering, and live events, I gained a degree in Engineering Acoustics from the renowned Institute of Sound and Vibration Research at Southampton University, whilst playing guitar (badly!) and working at as many gigs as I could. After graduation I began a career in loudspeaker design, specialising in musical instrument speakers, before becoming the R&D Manager for a British MI company. I joined Laney / HH early in 2009 and now use my experience in design, manufacturing, acoustics, live sound, and relationships to support our product development, our customers and of course our manufacturing of world class products, whether in our own West Midlands facility or overseas with our partners. I still play guitar badly!

    • Roger Hickman

      I’ve worked at Headstock for quite a while, originally starting way back in 1994 as a storeman, carrying metalwork, transformers, and other components downstairs to the factory, then back up as fully built amplifiers ready to be packed & shipped out. Since then, I’ve worked as an electronic & audio test engineer for our HH mixer product line, and sales & technical support for our Laney products before finally settling in the IT department as application developer in 2008, and then as IT Manager for the last few years. My role here at Headstock combines two of my greatest passions – music & computers! What could be better?
