Allerod, Denmark (November 1, 2010)–Christian Poulsen has joined DPA Microphones as CEO and shareholder.
Poulsen, a member of DPA Microphones’ board of directors for the last four years, has also been working as an external consultant at the company for the last 10 months. Poulsen founded digital camera and scanner company, Imacon, in 1995. In 2004, Imacon merged with Hasselblad to transform the Swedish photography giant from high-end film-camera company to a fully digital camera operation. Poulsen drove this process as CEO at Hasselblad until end of 2009.
“I look forward to the challenges and possibilities that DPA faces in the global marketplace over the coming years,” says Poulsen. “DPA Microphones has a long tradition of making the best-sounding, most innovative and elegant microphones on the market, and we will continue to build on that heritage. We are looking to a future filled with many new products, technologies and activities that will take DPA to the next level.
“I am confident my skills in managing high-tech companies, together with my experience in manufacturing and selling advanced products globally for a creative user group, will be of great help to DPA in the future.”
