On March 31st, Audiolab had the pleasure of
hosting Bill Nicholson of Paradigm for his final presentation before
retirement. Bill has been in the audio industry for 44 years, 30 of which were
with Paradigm. He was first attracted to the brand, as we were, because of the
phenomenal performance for the price. Audiolab signed on with Bill and Paradigm
in 1997, and we have shared a great partnership ever since.
When Bill started at Paradigm, they had a 5-speaker line
with only a few reps and a few
dealers in the US. Alongside Bill VanderMarel, he traveled around the US
training hiring representatives and building dealer relationships in every
state. Over the years, he helped to build Paradigm in the US as their product
range expanded with awards and critical acclaim across the board.
After 30 years of tireless work helping to build Paradigm
from a small, 5-speaker line to the powerhouse that it is today, Bill looks
forward to retiring and spending his time traveling between his homes in Idaho
and Delaware. He will always cherish his years at Paradigm, and he has the
sound systems to prove it. Both of his homes feature Paradigm pieces from the
past and present; Active
20s, Active 40s, Servo15 V.2s,Tributes, Studio Sub 12s, Anthem D2V, Anthem
A-5, Anthem Pre 2L, Anthem P-2, MRX 720 and a variety of other
Paradigm/Anthem combinations drive his home systems.
Audiolab thanks Bill for helping us to start a long-lasting
relationship with Paradigm and consistently driving that partnership to new
heights with astonishing products and opportunities.
Congratulations on your retirement, Bill! Now you can
finally relax and put in some hours listening to those awesome Paradigm
