Genelec has appointed Ken Kimura to the newly created role of business development director for the Asia Pacific region.
With over 20 years of experience, focusing on strategic sales and marketing as well as
international distribution and business development, Kimura will look to bolster Genelec’s international business strategy, working closely with key distribution partners in the APAC region, including Genelec’s own subsidiaries in China and Japan.
He has spent over 15 years with Danish microphone expert DPA, where he specialised in senior management roles developing an extensive network of business relationships across the APAC zone.
Kimura commented: “I’ve been following Genelec’s progress within the industry for years, and
admire how the brand has developed in Asia Pacific over the last decade – it’s a company
with a real passion for audio and a commitment to bringing innovative loudspeaker solutions
to the global audio community. It’s a privilege to become part of the team, and I’m truly
excited at the huge potential this new role offers.”
Genelec managing director Siamäk Naghian added: “Ken has a wealth of experience in heading up business units, and an impressive track record in both brand and business management. With the commercial landscape evolving so rapidly, we’re delighted to welcome aboard someone with such intimate professional and cultural knowledge of the APAC region and the skills to help us, our partners and customers to reach our full potential in this highly exciting – but fascinatingly complex – part of the world.”
