New York, NY (November 13, 2012)—L-Acoustics has retained pro audio stalwart David Cooper as its new regional sales manager for the territories of China, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia.
Cooper, best known in the industry for his 18 years at Midas/Klark-Teknik, left the company in 2010 to found David Cooper Consulting, aimed at helping professional audio manufacturers make in roads into the Asia Pacific region. In his new role as L-Acoustics’ regional sales manager, he will be responsible for building relationships with Asian counterparts to aid in distribution as well as developing sales targets in Asia. Additionally, he’ll be maintaining and fostering business activities with L-Acoustics representatives and supporting their projects through technical and commercial advice and support.
Director of Business Development Jochen Frohn states, “Here at L-Acoustics, we take our appointments very seriously, and for this position we were looking for someone with management expertise who would also be an asset in the Asian region. With David’s track record of performance and technical expertise, we are confident that we will enjoy collaborating with him and are very pleased to have him on board.”
“L-Acoustics has become a leader in its field and I’ve long admired the way this status has been achieved,” comments Cooper. “My perception is that the brand has innovation and quality at its core, and this was evident during my visits to the HQ at Marcoussis. I was also struck by the very friendly, team-based, vibrant atmosphere that runs through the company, and this made a very big decision actually quite easy for me. I am now really looking forward to reinforcing the L-Acoustics brand values and developing strong relationships with our distribution partners in the Asian region as well as adding value to the team as a whole.”
