Listen Technologies has announced two key executive level changes made to help position the company for its next phase of growth and expansion. The company is also unveiling a comprehensive business plan involving new product introductions, brand positioning, sales channels, marketing and customer service.
Cory Schaeffer, who previously served as vice president of sales, is now contributing in the newly created position of vice president of business development. In the new role, Schaeffer will focus on business development by strengthening Listen’s relationships within the existing channel while expanding the company’s reach and penetration into new markets.
Schaeffer’s long-term relationships that she has developed over the years with representatives, consultants, integrators and distributors in the audio-visual industry, along with her passion for the technologies and solutions offered by this market sector, make her a great fit for the new position.
In addition, Tim Schaeffer, previously vice president of strategic development, is now serving as vice president of sales, worldwide. With a history in sales and marketing management in the professional audio and system integration market sectors during his tenure at Listen, Schaeffer has been instrumental in the growth of the company and identifying new sales opportunities. In his new position, he will continue to capitalize on his unique skill set and guide the company with increased sales and market initiatives.
“We’re extremely fortunate to have such deep experience in our management team that we are able to make the changes needed to take our company into the next phase of growth,” states Russell Gentner, CEO of Listen Technologies. “Cory is an expert in pioneering new relationships, products and markets, which makes her perfect for spearheading new Business Development, while Tim is masterful at identifying and developing successful sales channels while maintaining strong customer relationships. I’m thrilled to have both of them in these key positions.”
