Renkus-Heinz Expands Sales Management

Phil Van Peborgh

Foothill Ranch, CA, May 2012… Renkus Heinz has announced two major changes to their sales management force.

Industry veteran Phil Van Peborgh has joined the company as Eastern Regional Sales Manager, while Technical Sales Manager Ladd Temple has been promoted to Western Regional Sales Manager.

Van Peborgh comes to Renkus-Heinz after several years as a manufacturers’ representative with Highway Marketing and TechRep. He was also Director of Marketing for social media portal Knetwit.com, and General Manager of video games magazine Polygon.

Prior to moving to the US in 2000, Van Peborgh spent more than a decade working in live sound, touring the US and Europe extensively as a FOH, Monitor and Production Engineer. His resume also includes several years as a systems integrator.

“We’re very excited to welcome Phil to Renkus-Heinz,” said Rik Kirby, VP of Sales and Marketing. “His extensive career experience across a wide range of professional audio positions gives him a unique first-hand perspective into the many different markets in which our products are found, and his proven track record in sales makes him an ideal fit for our continued growth.”

“Renkus-Heinz is not just one of the original loudspeaker manufacturers in our industry, they’re also one of the most innovative,” added Van Peborgh. “Few companies can boast a track record of so many industry firsts, across so many different pro audio sectors. I’m proud to be joining such a forward-thinking team, and am very much looking forward to getting out and meeting our representatives and our end users.”

Ladd Temple

Ladd Temple, who joined the company last year as Technical Sales Manager, has been promoted to the position of Western Regional Sales Manager. Temple, who came to Renkus-Heinz after several years with Peavey Electronics, has already been providing technical and sales support to Renkus-Heinz’s extensive representative and dealer network throughout the United States.

“Ladd’s work with our sales reps has not only afforded him an unparalleled technical knowledge of the entire Renkus-Heinz product line, but has fostered relationships that will be invaluable in his new position,” added Kirby.

Van Peborgh’s territory will include the United States east of the Mississippi. He will be working from his offices in Knoxville, TN, and can be reached via email at phil@renkus-heinz.com. Temple will now handle all territories west of the Mississippi, and will continue to be based in Texas. He can be reached at ladd@renkus-heinz.com.
