“Our moves to consolidate sales operations in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Potters Bar, United Kingdom have paid a strong dividend in terms of effectiveness and efficiency,” Robbins said today. “Having Mark Posgay onboard to lead the Elkhart-based national sales team promises equally strong results from our new US sales operation. Mark’s strong track record of sales success, coupled with his deep commitment to innovation and education, means our customers can look forward to a more responsive, effective Harman. Our sales partners can expect strong leadership and effective toolsets and our operations and support teams will be aligned to support the new structure and our US customers.”
Before joining Harman Professional, Mark Posgay held senior sales positions at Mars Music and more recently at Monster Cable. He has broad experience supplying strategic and tactical solutions in the areas of management, sales, training, and education to a broad spectrum of end-user, retailer, distributor, manufacturer, and educator client mix. Mark has a BS in Psychology from the University of Florida and his strengths include the ability to promote teamwork and staff motivation, providing aggressive growth, accountability, and leadership to an organization.
Commenting on his new position, Posgay noted, “I have tremendous respect for Harman Professional’s unique ability to consistently build, integrate and market so many successful, great sounding products. I am similarly convinced that I can provide value to this great organization by helping to further organize, motivate and train our teams and our partners. I look forward to working with the brand teams, our reps and our divisional leaders to engineer successful programs that address our core markets and new verticals where the threshold for good sound systems continues to increase!”
