Loudspeaker specialist, Tannoy North America, has hired Ivan C. Schwartz to take on the position of western regional sales manager for the Kitchener, Ontario, Canada-based company's commercial/professional product sector.

The position has become available following a minor sales reorganization where Derek Black was promoted to eastern regional sales manager for commercial/professional products and Irv Weisman was moved to the position of distributed systems specialist. Marc Bertrand, Tannoy North America's managing director, believes this new team will greatly enhance the service level and back-up that Tannoy can provide its customers.
