Arun Kumar has been appointed by Genelec as regional business manager of the Asia and Middle East market regions.
During his career, Kumar notably established and oversaw one of the subcontinent’s leading systems integration companies, eventually growing his team to more than 70 people.
He then went on to head the sales, marketing and operations sectors of Bose, across the SAARC region.
Kumar will be responsible for developing Genelec’s regional reputation to expand the customer relationship network within the AV and home audio segments. He will be based in Delhi, reporting to sales director Ole Jensen, and working alongside sales and support engineer Clifford Pereira.
Jensen commented: “Few members of our industry possess the level of knowledge, experience and commitment that Arun brings to his work and I fully expect him to create great opportunities for Genelec. Asia and the Middle East are both extremely important markets for Genelec – in India alone the potential is huge. Arun will play a key role as we continue our efforts to develop our share of the international AV and home audio sectors.”
“We are delighted to welcome Arun to the Genelec family,” added Genelec managing director, Siamäk Naghian. “During his career, Arun has developed a remarkable affinity for his customers; he knows their requirements and he understands the challenges that they face. He shares many of the values that we at Genelec hold dear, and I look forward to many successful years together.”
In December 2018, PSNEurope spoke with Naghian about Genelec’s 40-year history, after winning the Company of the Year Award at the Pro Sound Awards 2018, which can be found here.
