dennisharburn_0409Last week Shure Incorporated announced the passing of Dennis Harburn, Managing Director of Shure Distribution UK.  A native of South London, Dennis had been with the company for 36 years.  Dennis joined the Shure in 1972, when it was Shure Electronics Limited (SEL), as a sales rep for London and the South East (UK), but as SEL shifted to independent ownership, he quickly rose through the ranks as Assistant Sales Manager, Sales Manager, and then Sales Director before being named Managing Director in 2000.

“I was shocked and deeply saddened by this news,” said Sandy LaMantia, Shure’s President and CEO.  “Dennis had a very long relationship with Shure, as an Associate and as a channel partner.  His expertise and leadership in the complex United Kingdom audio marketplace were invaluable to Shure throughout those years.  He will be greatly missed.  My sympathies go out to his family and to our ‘family’ of UK Associates.”
