Loudspeaker manufacturer KV2 Audio has announced the appointment of Paul Freudenberg to the position of Business Development Director, US, effective immediately. Freudenberg brings a wealth of experience in a career that spans over 25 years with a number of leading pro audio manufacturers including L-Acoustics, AKG, BSS Audio and Aphex Systems.
Freudenberg will be immediately charged with the task of setting up direct distribution offices in Los Angeles, CA. The aim is to further enhance user and reseller relations as well as complement the existing market development activities being conducted by PLUSMUSIC US, which continues to function on behalf of KV2 Audio as an official Value-added Reseller in the US market and independent sales representative (North-east region).
“Our new distribution facility on the west coast complements the existing activities of the eastern US and Canada regions,” says Freudenberg. “Helping our existing users as well as new and prospective clients gain greater access to the product and offering the support of a local service department are some of our goals. We are positioned for greater responsiveness and improved customer experience for the reseller and live-sound professional.”
Stefano Trevisan, CEO of PLUSMUSIC US welcomes the expansion of the US team: “It’s clear that KV2’s presence in the US market and globally has grown in the past few years making this next phase for the brand an exciting time for us in the United States. As KV2 is increasingly recognized as a leading player in the high-end segment of the market, we’re excited to have Paul on board as a resource from KV2 to bolster support for our existing network while we continue to permeate the market. This addition allows us to better allocate our time and resources for our customers, as they increasingly turn to PLUSMUSIC US and KV2 to give them a sonic edge in the marketplace.” Kieran Edling will continue his mission at PLUSMUSIC US as Business Director for the ongoing reseller and independent sales representative activities.
George Krampera Jr., CEO of KV2 Audio, is glad to count Freudenberg as a member of the team. “In the early days of KV2 we made quite an impression on the US market,” he recalls. “With Paul’s help and our improved US infrastructure, we are very much looking forward to rebuilding that excitement for our historic users, as well as introducing a whole new realm of audio professionals to the exceptional quality and performance that is now synonymous with KV2 all over the world”.
Freudenberg agrees: “I am pleased to offer my efforts and experience to the broadening of the KV2 business in the US,” he says. “The brand’s reputation and sonic notoriety proceed me, and I am looking forward to expanding brand and product awareness throughout my professional network.”
