Meyer Sound has announced a number of new sales positions as part of an initiative to strengthen its presence in key markets, starting with the appointment of audio veteran Wolfgang Leute as sales director, Germany.
Leute’s background includes over 26 years of professional audio experience, and he was most recently the head of international sales and distribution at beyerdynamic GmbH. Previously he held positions at Shure Europe as director, distribution management, EMEA and at Harman Germany as product manager for JBL Professional.
“Germany has always been an important market for Meyer Sound,” said Helen Meyer, company co-founder and executive vice president. “We are pleased to welcome Wolfgang to the team to lead sales in this key market. His experience and network will add value for our existing customers and will grow our business in this region.”
Meyer Sound’s Chris Mead (pictured, belowleft) has been promoted to sales manager, Middle East, Africa and India, while Sandeep Braganza has been appointed sales manager, India, reporting directly to Mead. Braganza previously was manager, business development and application, for Pro-Visual Audio in Bangalore.
Prior to Meyer Sound, Mead worked as a project engineer for Electrosonic in the UK and as a technical project manager for Almoe AV Systems in Dubai. Mead will manage all countries throughout these regions with the exception of Israel and Morocco, which are managed by Scott Gledhill, Meyer Sound director of international sales.
The company’s Brian Chow (pictured, above right) has also been promoted to sales manager, Japan and South Korea. Based in Hong Kong, his extensive product knowledge is being tapped to support sales in these growth markets, and he will report to Scott Gledhill in developing the company’s business in Japan and South Korea.
