Berlin, Germany (March 3, 2014)—Vue Audiotechnik has created a European branch, Vue Audiotechnik Europa GmbH (Vue Europe), which will be headed by newly appointed managing director, Holger de Buhr, in Berlin, Germany.
Vue Europe is a service and support organization for the Vue Audiotechnik brand across Europe, providing distributors, dealers and customers with regional resources, including technical support and service personnel, application engineering, and a demo facility and showroom. Vue Europe will also assume direct distribution responsibilities for the Vue Audiotechnik brand in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
"Europe is an extremely important market for VUE," commented CEO Ken Berger. "Even though our focus to date has been primarily on North America, Vue has enjoyed some pretty significant momentum in Europe, thanks in part to a growing network of extremely dedicated distributors."
In addition to serving as CEO of Vue's German distributor Media Logic GmbH, de Buhr has also held strategic leadership positions with the Just Music Group as well as Audio Sonic GmbH, where he was responsible for regional distribution of the d&b brand, permanent installation and project business, as well as worldwide service for Neumann Broadcast consoles.
Vue Audiotechnik Europa GmbH begins operations immediately. Vue's EVP, Jim Sides, will work directly with de Buhr during the initial ramp-up phase. Their immediate focus will be expanding support services and technical personnel, increasing regional inventories and fulfillment capabilities, as well as growing Vue's distribution network to all points in Europe.
