Chester, PA (November 4, 2011)—Community Professional Loudspeakers has appointed Thomas Mittelmann as director of business development, Asia-Pacific.
Mittelmann most recently worked with Powersoft, concentrating on global brand building and marketing while overseeing sales in the Asian region. However, it was during his years with Lab.gruppen when rapid growth led from managing all overseas sales to focusing primarily on Asia, prompting his relocation from Germany to Singapore in 2007. Mittelmann previously had spent eight years with Community handling European sales.
Julia Lee, sales and marketing director of Community, comments, "Thomas brings invaluable international sales experience and market knowledge to Community. He is joining our team at a pivotal time for our company, which has been experiencing strong growth despite the economic climate. We're excited to have him on board to help us grow our presence in the Asia-Pacific region, especially in important expanding markets like China and India."
Mittelmann adds, "I'm very happy to be rejoining Community, and in many ways it feels a bit like coming home; most of the same great people and spirit. But 10 years is a long time, and Community has grown on all levels and with a much expanded product range. During this time, I have also had the privilege of learning a lot, much of which I look forward to using in my new role and the markets I will be working in. Together, we will serve the needs of the region even better, to the benefit of all existing and future Community customers."
