Colin Traynor

Sales Manager - Northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland

- Since 2007 -

Having recently celebrated 50 years in the seating industry, Colin brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and not a little charm to customers in the north of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Colin joined the Rank Organisation’s Seating Division in 1966, progressing from the drawing office, to Head of Research & Product Development then, in 1976, to Product Manager of Retractable Seating. At that time, he also undertook extensive Engineering and Sales training in the USA.

By the end of his time at Rank, Colin’s passion for the seating business was firmly entrenched. He stayed in the industry, working for various companies, travelling extensively and gaining a good few tall tales along the way. In 2007 he joined Audience Systems and since then has worked on a raft of outstanding projects including recently the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, the Usher Hall in Edinburgh and a total refurbishment of Manchester Arena.

Colin’s interests include architecture, history, geography and earth sciences, enriched during holidays abroad with his family.
