Genelec appoints industry leaders to spearhead sales growth
Jensen is a well recognised figure within the professional audio market, having most recently led the worldwide distribution of Dynaudio Pro. Over the course of more than three decades he has held a succession of high profile sales and distribution roles including an early post at Yamaha, followed by a long period of service with TC Group, during which he became Vice President of Sales for Broadcast and Production. He was also responsible for the development of the company’s European pro audio distribution network. In his new role, Jensen will develop and support Genelec’s international network of sales partners and distributors within the professional sectors.
Olsen, meanwhile, brings technical flair and a deep understanding of the AV market to his new position. A veteran of some 20 years, he too is perhaps best known for his time with TC Group, where he led AV installation sales, having previously worked within the rental sector. He is expected to significantly strengthen Genelec’s already strong profile within AV. Both he and Jensen will be based in Denmark.
“Ole and Jonas bring deep knowledge and unique skills to Genelec, giving us an excellent opportunity to further our relationships with our distributors, dealers and end customers,” commented Genelec Managing Director, Siamäk Naghian. “This is a unique time in the audio industry, a period of unprecedented transformation. As we face the exciting opportunities that lay ahead, we feel fortunate to have such a strong team, and we are delighted to welcome Ole and Jonas to that team.”
Since 1978, Genelec has developed high quality studio monitors and active speaker systems. Over the years and based on customer requirements, the extraordinary technical ambition of Genelec’s R&D team has led to several innovative technologies and revolutionary designs which have refined every product to set a benchmark in the industry. Maintaining a wide product offering has given Genelec challenges and ultimately a lot of experience. Every Genelec customer benefits from this experience by having precision tools to rely on.
Genelec products are designed for demanding professionals, quality AV installation and high-end home use. They reveal the original nuances of the sound, without leaving anything out nor adding anything to the signal in any stage of the production. Genelec products are made to last, with pride and care by our own production staff in Finland. Many of our very first products are still in active use and we continue our strong commitment to provide service and spare parts for all products for years even after their discontinuation.
