Sennheiser Electronic Corporation named Chris Spahr to the newly created position of northeast regional market development manager-installed sound. This became effective in March of 2006. Spahr reports to Eric Mayer, northeast regional sales manager.

Sennheiser recently decided to increase the number of market development managers in each of their three sales regions to two per region. Each region (northeast, south central and western) will have a dedicated person to cover Professional Products/Music Industry (Pro/MI) and another for Professional Products/Installed Sound. Adding market development managers underscores Sennheiser's commitment to further customer service and support sales and increase market share.

Spahr has substantial experience in the pro audio industry, both in sales, support and training, with various rep groups, consultants and contractors. In addition to his extensive work experience, Spahr has fulfilled his personal passion for music by graduating from Full Sail Center for the Recording Arts in Orlando, Florida.

"I couldn't be happier, to have Chris on the team," noted Mayer. "His technical chops, coupled with great people skills, are a perfect combination for this job. I have tremendous confidence in his ability to serve the diverse needs of Sennheiser's customer base and product lines, while maintaining existing customer relationships and building new ones."

In his new position, Spahr will work out of his New Jersey-based office and can be reached at (856) 608-6958. For more information, visit www.sennheiserusa.com.
