Connan is a senior product-marketing executive who arrives to Core Brands from Simple TV, a consumer electronics start-up producing a network home media server. He previously held executive roles at PeoplePC, Roxio and Corel, where he successfully managed global businesses spanning the North American, European and Asian markets.
Faulk is leading development on the Korus wireless speaker system. His 23 history of high-tech experience includes creating and delivering industry-leading new products for companies including DELL and HP. In the past, Brett consulted with the Core Brands in a role that led to the creation of the first generation of Korus speakers.
Logan will be responsible for developing and implementing strategies and initiatives to support Core Brands’ sales channels, primarily the Custom Installer, CI Distribution, and Retail channels. His career spans over 20 years of sales and channel marketing at companies including Broderbund, The Learning Company, Roxio and Sonic Solutions. Prior to his new position, he developed and led field marketing behind the introduction of the Korus wireless speaker system.
“I am pleased to welcome Yann to the Core Brands team and thrilled that Brett and Randy who have each made great contributions to Core Brands in a consulting capacity have both joined us full time,” said Core Brands VP Products and Marketing Joe Roberts. “Audio is one of our major areas of focus in 2014 and Yann’s multi-channel talents in hardware, software and cloud delivery, plus Brett¹s strengths in wireless audio, will help us create the audio products of tomorrow. As for channel marketing, Randy¹s skills are second-to-none. We look forward to all their contributions.”
