Bose's Simon Mighall joins Flare Audio

Professional and consumer audio manufacturer Flare Audio has named former Bose financial controller Simon Mighall as its new chief financial officer (CFO).

Mighall’s role will include putting in place financial systems enabling Flare to “grow seamlessly and realise its potential to rival the world’s major audio brands”, supplying high-end professional and consumer audio products globally.

Flare’s loudspeakers use the company’s own patented Waveform Integrity Technology to deliver a “pure sound almost indistinguishable from that made by the performers on stage or in the studio”, while, last year, its revolutionary Isolate ear defenders raised nearly £2.25m on crowdfunding websites.

“Prior to joining Flare, Simon Mighall spent 20 years at the UK subsidiary of Bose Corporation, whose turnover in this country went from less than £3m to over £100m during his tenure,” said Flare founder and CEO Davies Roberts.

“Simon’s deep functional expertise, ownership, tenacity and entrepreneurial spirit position him well for life at Flare.”

Mighall commented: “Flare Audio exudes excitement and enthusiasm. When I met Davies and the other directors, I caught the bug. This company is destined for great things and I have an amazing opportunity joining Flare at such an early stage.

“When I joined Bose, it was similar in turnover to Flare’s today. Having been through a steep growth path with a company before, I understand the challenges Flare will face. Everything we put in place today has to be scalable for the future because that turnover is only going in one direction, upward.”

John Banerjee, chairman of Flare Audio, added: “Simon will be instrumental in driving the commercialisation of Flare’s considerable body of Intellectual Property via new and exciting products in both Consumer and Pro-Audio markets, in alignment with Flare’s long-term strategy.”
