Chliaropoulos’s main function will be to provide first line support to the Canadian Sales Managers. This will involve interaction with both customers (end-users, dealers, distributors) and independent sales representatives, developing and influencing sales of products from the Bosch Communications Systems group of pro audio brands (Electro-Voice, Dynacord, Midas, Klark Teknik and Telex).
An active musician most of his life, Chliaropoulos became curious about mixing and P.A. equipment at an early age. In 1998, this passion for music and audio led Chliaropoulos to Steve’s Music Store, where he embarked on a career in M.I. sales. He immediately fell in love with the world of sales, meeting new people and helping them find solutions to their audio challenges.
In 2003, Chliaropoulos’s career took a turn when he joined the sales team at leading Canadian full service sound, lighting & multimedia house Solotech Inc. “I spent four years at Solotech, honing my craft and learning everything I could about the pro audio and commercial installation markets,” he says, “and I met and worked with many magnificent people during my time there.”
“Over the years I’ve seen many different manufacturers and market trends come and go,” Chliaropoulos adds, “and I’ve truly come to admire the Telex / Bosch Communications Systems family of brands. I’ve always been inspired by the company’s vision and its commitment to offering the highest quality and most innovative products. This is why I immediately jumped at the opportunity to join the Bosch family. I see it as an excellent next step in my career and a superb environment for me to advance my knowledge of the industry and grow as a pro audio industry professional.”
