Thomas Marcher is now serving as Crown International’s sales director for Asia and the Pacific Rim. The announcement comes from Scott Robbins, Crown senior vice president of worldwide sales, to whom Marcher reports.

Based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Marcher is tasked with overseeing all of Crown’s sales activities in a territory that spans from Pakistan and India in the northwest to New Zealand and Australia in the southeast, as well as everything in between, including China, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, etc.

Marcher will also regularly visit distributors, dealers, contractors, and consultants throughout this region, and act as a liaison between the field and Crown International factory in regards to product development, large-scale sales opportunities, and various marketing issues, such as international trade shows and advertising.

Marcher comes to Crown International from Klotz Digital Asia, where he most recently served as managing director. Prior to that, he spent two-and-a-half years in Bangkok, Thailand, as a sales manager for Danish Interpretation Systems, following eight years with TC Electronic, where he ultimately held the title of director of sales for Asia and Pacific.

“Although we’re sad to see Jerry Stutzman go, we know that our Asia/Pacific Rim sales infrastructure and customers are in very capable hands with Thomas on board down in Kuala Lumpur,” says Robbins. “His experience with many different nations and cultures combined with his sharp business acumen will undoubtedly enable Crown to continue to strengthen its brand awareness and presence in this very significant market.”

Marcher, himself, adds, “I’m really quite proud to join Crown, a company that has long been respected for its product innovation, quality, and performance. I’m pleased to say that I’ve used Crown amps since my early days as a live sound engineer and I find it very personally rewarding to now be a part of this team. I look forward to supporting Crown’s distribution network in this territory as well working closely with our fellow Harman Pro brands in seeking to provide complete system solutions for our end users.”
