At the start of this year, QSC EMEA opened a new office in Wattens, Austria, which is now distributing its live sound and systems product portfolio in Austria.
This will allow QSC to develop closer relationships with Austrian customers, providing extensive training, pre- and after-sales as well as both technical, repair and marketing support.
In his role as director, Gerd Kostial will oversee the Austrian QSC office as well as manage direct sales to key system integrators. Kostial has decades of experience in the pro audio and AV industries and most recently held the position of director at Shure Distribution Austria. Patrik Heider will join Kostial as sales manager with a large focus on live sound accounts. Additional technical, sales and marketing support will be provided by the QSC EMEA branch located in Sinsheim, Germany.
“As one of the leading professional audio brands, the decision to be directly represented in Austria is a significant step in our European growth strategy”, said Ron Marchant, senior director sales and marketing, QSC EMEA. “With Gerd and Patrik, we welcome two team members who have extensive industry knowledge and with whom we are perfectly positioned.”
