Oxford, UK (September 2, 2010)—Industry sales and marketing veteran Chris Hollebone has launched Pro-Sales-Solutions, to aid pro audio companies trying to break into countries within EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa).
Making use of Hollebone’s 30 years of experience in selling and marketing professional audio products, Pro-Sales-Solutions offers a bespoke service according to the needs of the client with a primary objective to leverage contacts and market knowledge to increase sales in countries within EMEA. The new enterprise is aimed at smaller pro audio companies that may not have sufficient resources to devote dedicated manpower to improve the results in developing markets.
Hollebone has had recent experience in Russia, CIS, Eastern Europe and surrounding areas, and has operated throughout Europe for many years. Hollebone has led the EMEA operations for a number of companies with a broad spread of products; Sony Broadcast & Professional, Timeline, DTS, Harrison and more recently, Euphonix. Now Pro-Sales-Solutions’ portfolio of complementary products and companies is being assembled; audio, video and crossover but all relevant to broadcast, post production, film or music recording.
“Growth is not easy to achieve in most mature markets partly because of the financial insecurities but also because customers have already made the transition from analog to digital and from SD to HD. Focusing on countries where these changes have only recently started and in economies that may not be so affected by the downturn makes perfect sense.” Hollebone comments; “Many companies are so pre-occupied with maintaining sales, they miss the chance to develop the more challenging but rewarding markets. Pro-Sales Solutions saves any increase in headcount where sales will not yet support that investment. Understanding these markets and having existing relationships avoids wasted time and costly mistakes.”
Pro-Sales-Solutions’ official launch will be at IBC on September 10th and Pro-Sales-Solutions will attend major trade shows throughout the rest of the year.
