Martin Audio has announced the passing of the company’s European account manager, Andy Weingärtner, who died of a heart attack over Easter.

With more than 28 years’ experience in sales and marketing covering all aspects of pro audio, Andy was well known to the industry – particularly in his native Germany.

Andy is survived by his wife Sandra and their four sons.

“It was a huge shock to all of us,” comments Luke Ireland, managing director of Martin Audio.

“Andy was always an exuberant member of the team, and even before he joined Martin Audio he was a long term supporter. He will be greatly missed. We hope the whole industry will join us in extending thoughts and prayers to the
Weingärtner family, and our special thanks to them for letting Andy be a part of our lives too.”

A private memorial service took place on Saturday April 11 in Andy’s hometown of Worpswede. Long-term friend and colleague Andrew Davies represented Martin Audio.

“Andy was one of the audio industry’s good guys, anyone who was fortunate enough to know him will miss him and his loss leaves a unique hole in the industry for many of us,” said Andrew.
