Beaverton, OR (March 16, 2010)--Biamp Systems has promoted Gina Napoli to the position of vice president of marketing. Napoli reports to Steve Metzger, who became the new president of Biamp on January 31.
"The Biamp board of directors unanimously voted for Gina's promotion from director of marketing to vice president," said Metzger. "She has established a world-class marketing organization that has significantly elevated the Biamp brand worldwide. The new title also befits her expanded responsibility as head of our worldwide training operation, a job we know she will handle superbly."
As vice president, Napoli will retain her key marketing responsibilities, which include developing and driving the global marketing plan, directing new product introductions, overseeing corporate communications, and directing the activities of the company's external marketing agencies. She also will become a key member of the senior management team at Biamp, adding an experienced and intelligent voice to strategic matters.
As head of training, a key duty will be to advance the Biamp Education Experience. Napoli will manage a global training team dedicated to ensuring that integration partners receive the training they need to design and install Biamp products in the most knowledgeable manner.
Napoli joined Biamp Systems in 2006, from Virgin Entertainment Group in Los Angeles, where as senior marketing manager, she developed brand and marketing strategy for Virgin's emerging digital music service which was subsequently sold to Napster. It was this experience--along with having managed consumer-facing programs at major agencies and at global brands such as Nike and Sony Ericsson--that appealed to Biamp management, led to her hiring, and contributed to her rapid advancement within the company.
