As a key element of its program to centralize sales and support operations for the U.S. marketplace, Harman Professional named Mark Posgay as sales director for the United States. Company officials said the move reflects Harman Professional's increasing effectiveness at providing the professional audio and systems integration communities with advanced system solutions and with a single point of accountability for sourcing and supporting Harman's professional-grade audio technologies.
A 17-year sales leader with deep experience in professional audio, Posgay will be based out of Harman Professional's Elkhart, Ind., sales and support center and will report to Scott Robbins, vice president of sales.
"Our moves to consolidate sales operations in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Potters Bar, United Kingdom, have paid a strong dividend in terms of effectiveness and efficiency," Robbins said in a statement. "Having Mark Posgay on-board to lead the Elkhart-based national sales team promises equally strong results from our new U.S. sales operation. Mark's strong track record of sales success, coupled with his deep commitment to innovation and education, means our customers can look forward to a more responsive, effective Harman. Our sales partners can expect strong leadership and effective toolsets and our operations and support teams will be aligned to support the new structure and our US customers."
Before joining Harman Professional, Posgay held senior sales positions at Mars Music and more recently at Monster Cable. He has experience supplying strategic and tactical solutions in the areas of management, sales, training, and education to a broad spectrum of end-user, retailer, distributor, manufacturer, and educator client mix. Mark has a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Florida.
"I have tremendous respect for Harman Professional's unique ability to consistently build, integrate and market so many successful, great sounding products," Posgay said in a statement. "I am similarly convinced that I can provide value to this great organization by helping to further organize, motivate and train our teams and our partners. I look forward to working with the brand teams, our reps and our divisional leaders to engineer successful programs that address our core markets and new verticals where the threshold for good sound systems continues to increase."
