WORLD: Listen Technologies is positioning itself for the next phase of growth with two changes to its executive staff. Cory Schaeffer has been promoted to the newly created position of vice president of business development, and Tim Schaeffer has been appointed as vice president of sales, Worldwide.
The changes take place as the company has begun unveiling its latest business plan; involving new product introductions, brand positioning, sales channels, marketing and customer service.
‘We are 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,’ stated Russell Gentner, Listen CEO. ‘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 am thrilled to have both of them in these key positions.’
Ms Schaeffer previously held the position of vice president of sales. In her new role, she will focus on business development by strengthening the manufacturer’s relationships within existing channels while expanding the company’s reach and penetration into new markets. According to the manufacturer, the long-term relationships that she has developed over the years with representatives, consultants, integrators and distributors in the A/V industry, along with her true passion for the technologies and solutions offered by this market sector, make her an ideal fit for this new position.
With a rich history in sales and marketing management within the professional audio and system integration market sectors, Mr Schaeffer has reportedly been instrumental in the growth of the company and identifying new sales opportunities. In his new position he will continue to capitalise on his unique skill set and guide the company with increased sales and market initiatives.
