Loudspeaker manufacturer VUE Audiotechnik announces that Joe Manning of International Sales will serve as the company’s official representative throughout Asia and the Pacific Rim. VUE Audiotechnik in San Diego is a designer, manufacturer and marketer of professional audio systems for a broad range of sound reinforcement applications including touring sound, theater, club sound, portable P.A., houses of worship and commercial audio.
Under the terms of the partnership, Manning will help expand VUE Audiotechnik’s presence throughout the Asia-Pacific region by assembling and managing a distribution network for the company’s growing family of professional loudspeakers technologies.
“Joe’s reputation for building and leading highly-effective international sales channels is simply unmatched in our industry,” says Jim Sides, executive vice president at VUE Audiotechnik. “His expertise and solid relationships will be absolutely invaluable as we introduce new, innovative technologies and seek to forge strong, long-term business relationships throughout the world. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Joe and his team.”
Sides, a former Meyer Sound Germany CEO and co-founder of Apogee Sound, launched VUE Audiotechnik in March 2012 with Ken Berger, co-founder and former CEO of EAW.
Manning launched International Sales nearly 20 years ago to help U.S. manufacturers connect with international dealers and distributors. Since then, International Sales has helped to expand worldwide market share for some of professional and consumer audio’s most noted brands including EAW, APB Dynasonics, Symetrix, and Furman Sound.
“I’ve known both Ken and Jim for many years and I respect their passion for innovation and their commitment to driving the industry forward,” Manning says. “Already—in just four short months—VUE has introduced some very compelling technologies. I am enthusiastic about this company and am looking forward to bringing their innovations to customers throughout the Asia-Pacific region.”
