QSC Audio has announced the promotions of several senior managers to new leadership roles within its powerful global sales and marketing teams.
Gina Bergmann has been promoted to senior director, sales operations and U.S. sales; David Fuller has been promoted to senior director, international sales and technical marketing, and Ray van Straten has been promoted to senior director, marketing communications and training & education.
“I am very excited about these management changes and the opportunities they represent for our company’s future,” states Joe Pham, QSC president and CEO. “David, Gina and Ray each have proven track records of success, building teams from the ground up and being advocates for approaching our business differently. In addition, they all have a strong background in sales which gives them a unique perspective on how they approach the non-sales aspect of their roles.”
Bergmann originally joined QSC sales operations 12 years ago and has worked in both the retail and concert divisions, moving on to manage QSC strategic accounts, and most recently managing both sales operations and strategic accounts. She will also maintain responsibility for Channel Management Strategy.
“When I first joined QSC, I couldn’t imagine having a role informing the direction of the company,” says Bergmann. “Today, I could not be more excited about the opportunity to work alongside such an incredible group of people in shaping the direction of the sales and marketing teams of the future, and propelling our next phase of growth.”
Fuller came to QSC three years ago, first managing the Asia Pacific region, then relocating to the headquarters in Costa Mesa facility to head up the technical marketing team. In this role, he built a high caliber of talent and tools for the benefit of QSC customers.
“Becoming a global organization is a critical component of QSC’s mission statement, and I’m very excited at the prospect of playing a part in that. Furthermore, the international sales team at QSC has never been stronger, and it is my privilege to lead such a talented group of industry professionals.”
Throughout his 10 years with QSC, van Straten has served as retail market manager, director of entertainer solutions, and most recently managing the company’s marketing communications team. In addition to assuming the new training & education responsibilities, he will also continue to oversee worldwide artist relations and public relations.
“Being asked to serve the needs of our growing company in this way is both an honor and a privilege,” expresses van Straten. “The caliber of talent at QSC is second to none in the industry and our brand’s success is a reflection of that. I truly look forward to what lies ahead.”
