Sennheiser UK Appoints Nick Pemberton as Market Development Manager
Working directly for Gerry Forde, Director of Sales for Sennheiser UK’s Professional Audio, Integrated Systems and MI divisions, Nick’s new role is in the strategic development of the company’s markets, particularly in new and as-yet undeveloped areas.
“Sennheiser and Neumann are currently creating new and exciting products for sectors within which we are not traditionally known. These include the government, corporate and IT markets, to name a few,” says Gerry. “Nick’s new position requires a high level of audio knowledge across a broad range of applications, as well as strong commercial experience. I have no doubt that he will be very successful in such a forward-looking role.”
Nick will be working closely with product and account managers to create opportunities, launch new products and maximise opportunities for the Sennheiser and Neumann brands, as well as Sennheiser UK’s distributed third party products. Initially focusing on the broadcast, theatre and integrated systems markets, he will also be training internal team members to develop and maintain product and market knowledge.
“These are exciting times for Sennheiser UK,” he says. “I’m very pleased to be given this new challenge and looking forward to seeing where it might lead me and the whole team as we develop new areas of the business.”
