LEA Professional seeks growth throughout EMEA with Blue5 Technology


Smart amplifier manufacturer LEA Professional has secured a partnership with Blue5 Technology to support its growth presence in the EMEA region. Blue5 Technology is a newly founded company started by David Budge. Budge has over 20 years’ experience in the pro audio industry gained from previous roles at Harman and most recently as Africa export sales manager for Bose Professional. Blue5 will be responsible for LEA’s full suite of products, including the recently launched Cloud platform.

“AV customers across all verticals are seeking specialised solutions and are moving away from institutionalised corporations towards entrepreneurial, dynamic partners with market-proven depth,” commented Budge. LEA Professional is a global player in AV but retains the entrepreneurial culture and customer focus. It is exactly the right partnership AV customers need in these times of change. LEA Professional has the ability to be agile and they’re not held back by the restrictions that come with a large organisation. Instead, they can work closely with customers and ensure they are giving them exactly what they need.”

“LEA Professional is embracing new technologies that we are not seeing from others in the industry,” added Budge. “Progressive integrators are looking for cloud-based solutions that can provide them with recurring revenue options. Being able to diagnose a problem remotely – whether in a pandemic or not – is an important time and cost-saving tool for installers.”

The manufacturer has been quickly growing its distribution network since first unveiling the brand at NAMM 2018. “We are very pleased that Dave Budge has formed Blue5 Technology and similarly pleased to partner with him to serve our customers in EMEA,” said Scott Robbins, LEA Professional’s VP of global sales. “We have been growing significantly over the last several months as demand of our Cloud-enabled Connect Series products reaches new heights and as many more integrators become comfortable with our technology and brand. We look forward to working with Dave and his team as we expand further in the EMEA markets.”
