Sennheiser Communications, the provider of headset solutions, says it is enjoying continued success, reporting increased growth in the competitive headset market, and strong sales for the first half of 2011. To capitalise on this success the company has recruited new upper management personnel to support Sennheiser’s channel partners and drive further increases in sales. Joining the Sennheiser team are Nigel Holland, Michael Waterworth and Paul Turner.
As Product Manager, Nigel will be responsible for the marketing of Sennheiser Communication’s consumer, prosumer and professional products, with particular focus on the growing areas of PC VoIP and UC within the professional telecoms markets. With previous experience in the professional headset market, Nigel brings with him a wealth of industry knowledge.
Michael will take on the role of Sennheiser Communications Sales North, and Paul the role of Business Development Manager. Each of them will be responsible for supporting Sennheiser’s channel partners and driving sales of Sennheiser headsets. This will be achieved by communicating directly with end users within corporate businesses, contact centres and public sector organisations and educating them on the benefits of Sennheiser products. Subsequent orders will then be delivered to the appropriate channel partner for fulfilment.
With ten years market experience, Paul Turner has a detailed understanding of vertical market applications for headset technology in sectors such as banking, law, finance and large corporate enterprises. Michael Waterworth has worked for various businesses in the telecoms industry and like Paul is no stranger to dealing with large enterprises in the corporate arena.
Speaking on the recent appointments Steve Bailey, Business Area Manager for Sennheiser UK said, “Sennheiser continues to move from strength to strength but we have set ourselves significant goals for expansion in the UK professional headset market. The strengths of our headsets are their unparalleled sound quality, comfort and reliability. Sennheiser’s challenge is in communicating these strengths to business users. Michael, Paul and Nigel have a great deal of expertise and experience in this area, and with their knowledge I have no doubt that Sennheiser UK will continue to make great strides.”
