d&b audiotechnik has introduced a new advisory board to strengthen the company’s strategic development and future growth.
Areas of focus include the continuation of the internationalisation process; strengthening of the segment strategy with particular attention devoted to installed applications; and structural company development on the growth trajectory path.
Appointed to the role of chairman and supporting the overall company strategy development and implementation is Dr Rolf Hagemann (pictured left), ex-CFO and deputy CEO of Media-Saturn.
Joining Hagemann on the board are Paul Whiting (pictured right), former president of global sales of Sennheiser and member of the Sennheiser executive committee, and David Claringbold, former director of the Sydney Opera House.
Whiting will support d&b with its go-to-market and globalisation strategy, while Claringbold will be drawing on his experience at the Sydney Opera House where he implemented sweeping changes and major technical upgrades to drive significant revenue growth. Claringbold will support d&b in further developing its segment strategy with a particular focus on the installation market.
d&b CEO Amnon Harman commented: “The wealth of experience at every level of business operation contained within the new advisory board is a huge resource for us. Individually, they are all remarkable businessmen with exemplary careers and an impressive list of achievements to their name. Collectively their experience is just staggering, and I am very proud that they have chosen to share it with d&b.”
Rolf Hagemann added: “With their passion and their commitment the management and the employees have put d&b in an outstanding position in the marketplace and have achieved a tremendous business success over the years. The whole advisory board is delighted to support the management team to continue the success story and steer the company into a new dimension.”
