Old Lyme, CT - Oct 27, 2011 - Sennheiser has made two executive appointments in the U.S. and Latin American regions. Effective Jan. 1, 2012, Sennheiser veterans Greg Beebe and Markus Warlitz will be appointed to the positions of president, Sennheiser Electronic Corporation and general manager of Sennheiser Latin America, respectively. Jean Langlais remains president of Sennheiser Canada. All three executives will report directly to John Falcone, president and CEO of Sennheiser Electronic Corporation, who heads Sennheiser's business in the Americas region.
The appointments of Beebe and Warlitz follow a global restructuring initiative that began in January 2011, which reorganized Sennheiser's sales operations into three major regions: the Americas, EMEA and Asia.
Greg Beebe is a 19-year company veteran who began his career as an application engineer and has since held positions of increased responsibility. In his current role, as vice president product marketing for the United States, he has shaped the company's business channel structure and oversaw all product marketing functions.
As general manager of Sennheiser Latin America, a newly created role, Markus Warlitz will be responsible for the continued growth of Sennheiser's Latin American market and its overall strategic direction. Warlitz holds a masters degree in business and engineering and began his career with Sennheiser in 2004 as chief financial officer.
