Hosa Taps New Product Manager
Hosa Technology, which makes analog and digital connectivity solutions for musicians, announced the promotion of Jose Gonzalez to product manager for the company's Hosa and Zaolla Silverline brands.
As product manager for Hosa Technology and Zaolla Silverline, Gonzalez manages sales and marketing activities, analyzes brand performance and competitiveness, and tracks product trends to develop strategies for the Hosa and Zaolla brands.
A member of the Hosa Technology team since June 2008, Gonzales served as Hosa's sales coordinator prior to his promotion. In that capacity, he managed all sales reporting between Hosa Technology and the company's field sales staff, coordinated sales leads for prospective retail accounts and distributed them to the field sales staff for follow-up, and was responsible for implementing and monitoring the sales department's information technology infrastructure. With his background as an audio technician, Gonzalez possesses the application knowledge to understand the challenges the company's customers routinely encounter.
"I'm very pleased to have Jose take control of these critical aspects of our business," said Jonathan Pusey, Hosa Technology's director of sales and marketing, in a statement. "Jose's combination of skills makes him a terrific choice for product manager. He understands what musicians and audio professionals look for, and this is extremely important when it comes to interfacing with our retailers, field sales staff, and end users."
