Stage Tec has announced that long-time vice president René Harder as well as Sascha Khelifa — new to the company team — have been appointed as managing directors.
Khelifa has been working in professional audio for two decades and brings extensive experience in sales management and general management, which is his focus in the new role with Stage Tec. For 10 years, he served as managing director of Meyer Sound La. Germany GmbH. Sascha Khelifa will be responsible for sales and commercial management at Stage Tec.
“Stage Tec is a globally active, well regarded company with an attractive portfolio. I’m really looking forward to working with a dedicated team in Berlin,” Khelifa states.
Harder, now responsible for production and technology in his new role, joined Stage Tec as a software developer in 2003 and gained extensive insight in several areas in serving as assistant to the management and vice president since 2013. “I’m very honored to be joining the senior management team, and will continue to drive the development of innovative products at Stage Tec,” he says.
Christophe Permantier has been with Stage Tec as interim managing director since last summer and has been able to successfully complete clarification of the shareholder structure and the management reorganization in that time. He now moves from management to the supervisory board, thus helping to ensure continuity with the realignment and reorganization of the company.
