Denver, CO (June 8, 2012)—DPA Microphones has named Eric Mayer to be president of the company’s U.S. operations.
“I am very excited to be working with a high-quality brand like DPA Microphones, which develops innovative products that are standouts in the industry,” says Mayer, an industry veteran of more than two decades. “For most of my professional career, I participated in the growth and development of another premium microphone company, and I plan to use that experience to help DPA expand further in the States. I look forward to ensuring that the company adjusts in a sales and marketing perspective to the changing and increasingly competitive environment of the microphone industry, as well as to overseeing the entire U.S. operation.”
After graduating from New York University with a degree in music technology, Mayer took his first significant sales job with Location Sound Corporation, a production audio equipment sales, service and rental company for the film, broadcast and video markets. During his tenure with Location Sound, Mayer worked his way to assistant sales manager before joining Sennheiser USA as a market development manager in 1996. Since that time, Mayer held various positions with Sennheiser USA, most recently as national sales manager for the professional systems division.
“We are very pleased to welcome Eric, who shares our vision for the future of DPA Microphones in the audio industry, to the team,” says DPA CEO Christian Poulsen. “I am confident that he will continue to support our existing U.S. partners, as well as providing many new ones with the opportunity to be a part of DPA’s worldwide success. His expertise in successful promotion of an audio business in the States ensures that both DPA and the industry will enjoy great enhancements…. We see a huge potential to expand our market share, especially with our miniature microphones, which already have a long list of fantastic references within the theater, broadcast, live and installation environments. We know Eric is the perfect person to lead our mission in the U.S.”
