Harman Professional Establishes EMEA Sales Office, Names Dave Karlsen As Senior Director of Sales, EMEA

Following the successful opening of international sales offices in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and San Juan, Puerto Rico and bringing Harman Professional an important step closer to the deployment of international field sales offices in all of its global territories, the company today announced the establishment of a dedicated sales office to serve the EMEA territory. Located in Potters Bar, England, the Harman EMEA Sales office will be led by professional audio sales veteran Dave Karlsen, who is promoted from his role as Director of International Sales for Harman Music Group to Senior Director of Sales, EMEA with responsibility for Harman Professional sales management and support for all brands in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Effective July 1, 2010, Karlsen will lead the team of sales professionals and application engineers and Harman Professional’s newly launched EMEA order entry team. He will report to Scott Robbins, Harman Professional Vice President of Sales, who today noted Karlsen’s experience and leadership as key reasons why he will be an asset to Harman Professional distributors in the EMEA territory.

“Dave Karlsen is a proven entity at every level,? Robbins said today. “He has led a Harman distributorship in the UK; he has led the international sales organization for HMG and he has demonstrated his organizational, communication and leadership abilities in serving his customers and distribution partners. I am very pleased that he has accepted this position and I am highly confident that his team will be a major contributor to our distributors’ success in EMEA in the years ahead.?

Commenting on his new role, Karlsen said, “The vision behind Harman Professional’s international sales infrastructure is a constellation of well-organized sales, support and administrative centers located regionally and populated by well-trained, dedicated staff. My responsibility is to bring the vision to reality, and to ensure that our stakeholders including distributors, dealers and end-users get the best possible technologies with the best possible support from Harman Professional. I look forward to this challenge, to working with Scott Robbins and the Northridge team and also to sharing ideas with David McKinney in Kuala Lumpur and Jamie Albors in San Juan.?
