Neubauer retired with effect from August 1. AKG vice-president, marketing, Alfred Reinprecht, is to add her responsibilities to his existing duties.

"AKG is famous for making premium quality microphones and headphones, many of which have become legends," commented Reinprecht. "Mathilde Neubauer proves that many of the people behind our products have become legends, too. I would like to thank her personally for contributing to the development of the AKG brand for all these years."
