Swiss-born Robert Trunz grew up in the canton of Lucerne, learning the salesman trade and tinkering with sound engineering in his spare time.
He got into the Hi-Fi business, joined the local branch of the [b]B&W[/b] loudspeaker company, and in 1981 moved to England to head their international marketing division. After the death of company founder John Bowers in 1987, Mr. Trunz took over the company and lead it to new directions - even launching the [l=B&W Music] label in 1988 and spearheading the design of the legendary "Nautilus" and "pod" range of speakers. In 1996 he sold his shares in B&W; the [b]Blue Room[/b] speaker company (with the [l=Blue Room Released] label) became fully-independant, and he launched the [l=M.E.L.T. 2000] label.
A very skilfull organiser of people, musicians and events, Mr. Trunz is crazy about indigenous (jazz, world, African) music and relocated his base of operations to South Africa in 2002, relaunching [l=M.E.L.T. 2000] there.
