Harman has appointed Robert Habersaat (pictured) as Vice President of Sales for Harman's Studer team in Regensdorf, Switzerland. Habersaat rejoins Studer after seven years working as Head of Broadcast Sales for Dr.W.A.Günther in Switzerland, and describes his appointment as "a return to the family."
Habersaat takes over the Studer brand sales job following Adrian Curtis's new appointment running Harman Professional's EMEA Regional Sales Office, which created two vacancies: this one for Studer, the other for Soundcraft.
Habersaat originally joined Studer in 1996 managing sales for Switzerland and distribution in Germany, Austria, France, Italy and the Nordic region. In 2001, he headed up the Studer sales team before joining Dr.W.A.Günther, the Harman Pro distribution partner for Switzerland.
"Studer has been the continuous thread running through my entire career," Habersaat says, "as a customer, distribution partner and as a staff member of the team. I am very proud to return and contribute to one of the best companies in the professional audio industry."
Studer General Manager Bruno Hochstrasser adds, "To have Robert return to the Studer family gives me a great deal of satisfaction. He is a wonderful individual with a lot of professional expertise in the broadcast business and most of all Robert is a loyal and very hard working team player always putting the business and our clients' interests first. I am looking forward to working with Robert again and a bright Studer future."
