KIDDERMINSTER, UK – David Cooper has announced that after 18 years at the forefront of Midas and Klark Teknik he has formed David Cooper Consulting, which will work with a "select few" pro audio manufacturers on strategic sales and brand management.
"At Midas, we've had some good times; we've had some great times, but if I don't do it now, I never will," said Cooper. While noting that "over the last few months I've had a strong desire to be in charge of my own destiny," he downplayed any connection between his departure and the recent acquisition of Midas and Klark Teknik by Behringer.

 

"There will be speculation that my departure has something to do with the new owners of Midas Klark Teknik but this could not be further from the truth. Midas and Klark Teknik are profitable, in extremely capable hands, have a stable vision for long term growth that remains true to the brand values and have already received considerable investment from the Music Group. I have nothing but optimism for the future success and growth of Midas and Klark Teknik business on a global basis."

 

Cooper added that he and his former employer are not completely severing ties.  "It seems it is possible to have your cake and eat it," he said. "I'm delighted to announce that Midas and Klark Teknik are the first clients of David Cooper Consulting, which will exclusively represent both brands in Asia."

 

"I am incredibly sad to see David leave the company after all he has done for our brands and his record speaks for itself," said John Oakley, managing director of Midas Klark Teknik. "However in equal measure we are delighted to start using the services of David Cooper Consulting and fully expect a mutually beneficial, long term relationship."
