Audio specialist Sennheiser announced that it has appointed Kevin Waehner ('04) to product specialist, professional systems, and four additional appointments. The new appointments strengthen Sennheiser's domestic product and sales teams and are a reflection on the company's ongoing growth during an uncertain economic environment.
John Falcone, president and CEO of Sennheiser USA, commented: "I would like to welcome Kevin, Jack and Adam to the Sennheiser family and look forward to their strategic contributions in these important positions. We are very pleased to be able to attract the best talent in the industry despite the unpredictable nature of the economy; this is a strong example of our continued growth."
Kevin Waehner, Sennheiser's new product specialist, professional systems, reports to Robb Blumenreder, channel manager, professional systems and holds product marketing responsibility across a range of products, including Sennheiser's 2000 series, 3000 and 5000 wireless series, and MKE and MKH series microphones. Waehner, who holds a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing/Psychology from Bucknell University and an MBA from the UCLA Anderson School of Management, brings over 15 years of experience of both marketing strategy and corporate communications to his new role and was formerly employed by companies including Sam Ash, Marakon Associates and Gold Circle Films.
The appointments of Waehner, Ewer and Irby follow a restructuring of Sennheiser's sales and product marketing organization that began in December of last year, which focused on its three primary business segments: retail, professional audio and systems integration.
