Sennheiser has announced several changes within its Pro Audio Solutions Channel with the forthcoming retirement of John Falcone, Sennheiser’s long serving SVP of global sales, Pro Audio Solutions. Mark Posgay has been appointed to succeed Falcone in his role.
With his appointment, Posgay has announced his new Pro Audio Solutions leadership team, promoting Christophe van den Berghe to the position of VP of sales and marketing, EMEA, and Simon Holley to the position of VP of sales and marketing, Americas/ANZ. Vince Tan has been appointed as VP of sales, APAC, to secure channel growth and drive further business development in the APAC region.
A Sennheiser veteran of 19 years, Berghe brings a breadth of sales and marketing experience from previous roles in the company, along with a strong understanding of European markets. Holley has been with the company and Pro Audio team since 2014 as director of sales for the UK and Ireland, bringing 18 years of sales management experience to his new role. Tan began his career with Sennheiser in 1999 and has successfully progressed in various roles, boasting over 20 years of sales experience.
“We are excited about the strong global sales team in place for the Pro Audio Solutions Channel,” said Peter Claussen, COO of Sennheiser. “I am very much looking forward to seeing the team drive the business forward with excellence and customer orientation, and I congratulate Mark Posgay on his promotion.”
Posgay has held his new role since January 1, and reports directly to Claussen. Posgay has been with Sennheiser for five years, with a background of 20 years working in sales and the pro audio industry. He will continue to collaborate closely with Falcone until his retirement in October 2019 to ensure a smooth transition to the role.
In Falcone’s more than two decades at Sennheiser, his career highlights have included serving as CEO of wholly owned Sennheiser subsidiary, Sennheiser Electronic Corporation, to heading up sales for the its American operations, and then to the senior role at Pro Audio Solutions.
“We know that John’s retirement – like his career – will make as much of an impact across the industry as here at Sennheiser and for good reason,” commented Claussen. “John’s professional achievements and personal qualities have won him admiration both in our company and beyond. His continued contribution will be greatly appreciated over the coming months and we wish him all the very best for the future.”
