By PSW Staff • October 14, 2011 Thomas Mittelmann, new director of business development, Asia-Pacific for Community Community Professional Loudspeakers has announced the appointment of Thomas Mittelmann as director of business development, Asia-Pacific. Mittelmann most recently worked with Powersoft, successfully concentrating on global brand building and marketing while overseeing sales in the Asian region. Prior to that, he worked with Lab.gruppen, where rapid growth led him from managing all overseas sales to focusing primarily on Asia, prompting his relocation from Germany to Singapore in 2007. Mittelmann previously had spent eight years with Community handling European sales. His return to the company is well-timed as Community continues to see significant growth in international markets and expand its already comprehensive product range. Julia Lee, sales and marketing director of Community comments, “Thomas brings invaluable international sales experience and market knowledge to Community. He is joining our team at a pivotal time for our company, which has been experiencing strong growth despite the economic climate. We’re excited to have him on board to help us grow our presence in the Asia-Pacific region, especially in important expanding markets like China and India.” Mittelmann adds, “I’m very happy to be re-joining Community and in many ways it feels a bit like coming home; most of the same great people and spirit. But ten years is a long time and Community has grown on all levels and with a much expanded product range. “During this time I have also had the privilege of learning a lot, much of which I look forward to using in my new role and the markets I will be working in. Together we will serve the needs of the region even better, to the benefit of all existing and future Community customers.” Community Professional Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
