Clarity honours Ian Anderson with its 2020 Honorary Fellowship
The Clarity Alliance honoured Ian Anderson during the eighth annual “Best of Show” awards at The Bristol Show, presenting its Honorary Fellowship award to this hugely respected retailer and owner of Billy Vee Sound Systems. Awards were also presented to five exhibitors for their displays and demonstrations at the show.
Clarity undertakes to recognise individuals who have made a significant contribution to the industry through its annual Honorary Fellowship.
Presenting the award via live video link to Ian, Clarity’s chairman, Tom Barron, said, “Ian is one of hi-fi’s great characters. He has worked tirelessly to build Billy Vee Sound Systems in Lewisham, London, into a very well-regarded retailer. And he found time to be a very active chairman of BADA, the British Audio Dealers Association, laying much of the groundwork for the creation of its successor association, Clarity. His huge contribution to the British hi-fi industry makes him a very worthy recipient of the Clarity Honorary Fellowship.”
