Ankush AgarwalNorthridge, CA (July 12, 2010)–In the first step to what will be a comprehensive expansion of its operations in India, Harman Professional has appointed audio industry veteran Ankush Agarwal to the role of marketing & communications manager.
His appointment is part of a greater overall initiative to bring increased focus to the Indian marketplace, and will be followed by more appointments to Harman Professional’s sales, technical support and service teams in the months ahead.
Having previously served as marketing manager for Sennheiser India and with Hyundai Electronics before that, Agarwal will use that experience to drive Harman Professional’s marketing and public relations strategies in the region and build upon the foundation lain by Sushil John, systems director, India.
Both Agarwal and John will report directly to David McKinney, senior director of sales, Asia, Harman Professional. They’ll work together to develop new initiatives in the region that will serve to support both customers and channel partners. One of his first projects was providing support for Harman Professional’s presence at the PALM India Show in Mumbai this past June.
“We are all very excited to have Agarwal join our team in India,” commented McKinney. “His fresh perspective on marketing, his creative ideas and his vast experience in the audio industry will ensure that he makes an immediate impact working alongside Sushil John as they build on the great work that Sushil has done over the past five years in India.”
