AirPlay Direct Expands Global Initiatives with the Addition of Lee Williams
AirPlay Direct continues its expansion into the global market with the addition of Lee Williams as Manager of International Development. Williams is the founder and sole owner of Europe’s #1 country music radio station CMR, which is in its 7th year of broadcasting. Each month it reaches nearly 500,000 listeners around the world.
“I have been working with the AirPlay Direct platform for over two years and am so impressed with the service,” says Lee Williams. “When I first met Robert Weingartz, we just hit it off with our like minded ideas and vision. On my last visit, I was approached by Robert to handle the European end of AirPlay Direct. I was so excited as I like new challenges that fit in with my vision and circle of business. There is no conflict with my current business as it all compliments what we both do.”
As Manager of International Development, Williams will be responsible for the day to day development of key strategic partnerships both on the artist/label side of our business, and the radio side as well.
“We didn’t create this platform to deliver high quality audio to just terrestrial stations here in the states,” says Robert Weingartz, Chairman and CEO of AirPlay Direct. “From inception, AirPlay Direct was designed to be a resource that could be utilized around the globe. Lee is just the person to help us grab a firmer hold in the European market.”
