Jan 14, 2005 3:57 PM
Jeff Alexander has been promoted to the position of vice president sales, professional products for Sennheiser U.S.A. A six-year veteran on his second period of employment with Sennheiser Electronics Corporation, Alexander will retain his responsibilities, that of director-Neumann and distributed brands, in addition to the new position, which is effective immediately. Alexander's first tenure with SEC began in 1991 as brand manager and then as national sales manager for Neumann. After a short hiatus with Crest, Jeff returned to Sennheiser in 1999 to manage all third party brands.
In 2001, Alexander was promoted to director-Neumann and distributed brands and has helped SEC move toward its objective of being a one-stop solutions provider, enhancing the company's overall growth by securing distribution rights to a wide variety of complimentary brands, while also successfully managing the growth of the Sennheiser-owned Neumann brand. Those now reporting directly to Alexander include, Dawn Birr (Neumann), Paul Giansante (Turbosound), and Robb Blumenreder (HHB, InnovaSON, Australian Monitor), as well as the professional products sales team of Mark Humrichouser (pro sales-northeast), Rick Renner (pro sales-south central), and Lee Stein (pro sales-west).
Through his work with SEC's internal team, an ever-growing group of external suppliers, and the company's customers, Alexander has managed a four-fold growth in revenue over the last six years. During that period, he has also proven to be highly effective at coaching and developing his team.
Taken together, Alexander's achievements and his commitment to excellence and total customer satisfaction make for a more diverse and dynamic organization, while also supporting SEC's "3-D Vision" to delight our stakeholders, demand excellence, and deliver results.
Enthused about his new position, Alexander comments, "Sennheiser is a company that's energized and on the move. My new sales responsibilities fit perfectly with my psyche. With the new opportunity of promoting the concept of Sennheiser as the leading, pro audio, one-source solution provider and moving more product then ever before, I'm also very thankful to work with the outstanding Sennheiser team that truly makes this company so great."
Noted John Falcone, president and CEO of Sennheiser Electronic Corporation, "I have been privileged to work with Jeff over the past six years, watching as he helped develop our business, and as he developed as a leader. I have seen first hand his commitment to moving Sennheiser into an industry leading solution provider for all our customers, coupled with his commitment to serving our customers no matter how challenging the situation might be. When the position of vice president of sales opened, many of our customers called to lobby on behalf of Jeff. Thus, with my personal observations, supported strongly by both our customer base and our vendor partners that he's interfaced with, promoting Jeff was clearly the right choice--a choice that I am confident will benefit Sennheiser for years to come."
