In a move that immediately enhances its international sales team, Harman Professional has announced that it has appointed Doug Green to the position of director of sales for the EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) regional sales office.
Green is based at Harman’s facilities in Potters Bar, UK and will report directly to Scott Robbins, senior director of sales.
Green is responsible for overseeing all sales activities in the region for Harman brands, including AKG, JBL Professional, BSS Audio, Crown, Lexicon, Soundcraft and Studer. He will support the brands’ sales efforts and lead Harman’s expansion in the EMEA market.
“Doug’s background as an end-user in the contracting, FOH and studio domains coupled with extensive experience with major distributors and manufacturers makes him uniquely equipped to serve our customer base in this region,” says Robbins. “Doug will be a strong asset in strengthening our efforts in the EMEA market as it becomes an ever more important part of Harman’s international business development.”
