 Harman Music Group exec Dave Karlsen (pictured) has been promoted to the role of Harman Pro senior director of sales, EMEA. The move follows the opening of international sales offices in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and San Juan, and is said to bring Harman Professional “an important step closer to the deployment of international field sales offices in all of its global territories”. As of July 1, current Harman Music Group director of international sales, Dave Karlsen, will lead the team of sales professionals, application engineers and Harman Professional’s newly-launched EMEA order entry team. He will report to Harman Professional’s v-p of sales, Scott Robbins. “Dave Karlsen is a proven entity at every level,” said Robbins. “He has led a Harman distributorship in the UK; he has led the international sales organization for HMG and he has demonstrated his organisational, 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.” Karlsen added: “The vision behind Harman Professional’s international sales infrastructure is a constellation of well-organised sales, support and administrative centres 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.”
