Keith Ritson


- Since 2004 -

Having gained a wealth of director-level operational experience with Peter Black Holdings, ICI, BNP and Prosper De-Mulder, Keith joined Audience Systems in 2004 as Operations Director. From 2012 to 2022, he was Managing Director and he is continuing to serve as a director until his retirement later this year.

Audience Systems benefits from a supportive relationship with our parent company Kotobuki Corporation, and Keith always makes sure to spend time liasing with both them and our sister companies around the world. With his background in operations, Keith is also well-placed to drive a commitment to quality, customer service, outstanding value and continuous improvement through the business. He is also a director of our specialist subsidiary, Audience Upholstery.

He also enjoys getting involved in the R&D side of the business and seeing new products brought to market.

When not at work, Keith’s passion is for the rural life.
