Old Lyme, CT (May 12, 2011)--Peter Claussen has been named to head Sennheiser’s Installed Sound Business Division, starting in August.
The 47-year-old expert of marketing and sales joins Sennheiser from the IT company Höft & Wessel AG, where his last position was Deputy Chairman of the Management Board. Claussen also worked for seven years in various posts at Hewlett-Packard in Germany and the USA. The Installed Sound Business Division is a relatively recent addition to Sennheiser’s corporate structure and has been provisionally run by Dr. Heinrich Esser. As divisional President, Claussen will become a member of Sennheiser's Executive Management Board.
Claussen will be responsible for the operative business and strategic development of the Installed Sound division, with an eye to creating efficient and long-term market activity. "I’m really looking forward to this new challenge, as the Installed Sound area is increasingly becoming a systems business,“ said Claussen. "I can therefore apply my extensive experience from the IT sector to firmly establish Sennheiser's position in meeting the market requirements in the long term."
