Monaco (August 4, 2010)–The MUSIC Group has appointed Patricia Tan into the newly created executive management position of chief human resources officer (CHRO).
In this role, she will be responsible for overseeing the global human resources operations for The MUSIC Group, which is the holding entity for Behringer, Bugera, Midas and Klark Teknik. The group has offices in Germany, Singapore, Philippines, China, U.K., Australia, Japan and the United States. Tan honed her HR skills while working with such companies as Credit Suisse, Sumitomo Banking Corporation, DHL and Yahoo.
Tan comments, “I see many similarities between Behringer and Yahoo, especially that the founder/CEO started the business straight out of college in a cool industry that caters to both the young, and the young-at-heart. I am honored to be entrusted with the responsibilities of this new position. Not only is The MUSIC Group scaling new heights, but even closer to my heart, is the ongoing transformation of mindset, behavior and expectations, which will evolve into a brand new lifestyle and customer experience.”
“We are very excited to have Patricia on our management team,” says Uli Behringer, chairman/CEO of The MUSIC Group. “Her wealth of experience coming from Fortune 500 companies such as Yahoo, and her high level of energy are exactly what we need to get The MUSIC Group to a new level. As we transition into a multinational consumer brand, and continue to build our new management team, it is my priority to assemble a stellar group of executives with the skill and desire necessary to help us lead the Group toward success.”
