Telefunken USA CEO Toni Fishman and Director of Operations Alan Veniscofsky recently returned from Frankfurt, Germany, where they attended a meeting of Telefunken’s worldwide Partner Alliance. Telefunken Holding AG, the umbrella company that controls the worldwide rights to the Telefunken trademark outside of the United States, sponsored the meeting while Telefunken Holding AG CEO Hemjö Klein, a former board member of Lufthansa Airlines, hosted the meeting.
Participants in the conference included Telefunken licensees from Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Eastern European countries, Russia, Israel, the Middle East and Far East.
As a result of this conference, Telefunken USA in South Windsor, Conn., has been named the Elektroakustik (translation: Electrical Acoustics) arm of Telefunken and was awarded the exclusive rights to manufacture a wide variety of professional audio products and vacuum tubes bearing the Telefunken name, in more than 27 countries worldwide. Telefunken Elektroakustik is now in position to use the Telefunken trademarks for professional audio equipment in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Telefunken Elektroakustik has been an integral part of the revitalization of the distinguished legacy of the Telefunken organization. The company has played an instrumental role in revitalizing the Telefunken brand as a worldwide icon of innovation, encompassing a history of more than 105 years of the quality design and marketing of vacuum tubes, professional audio and musical instrument products.
Telefunken Elektroakustik states that it plans to expand its current professional microphone product line in 2009 to offer outboard signal processing equipment, vacuum tubes, and other ancillary recording and professional audio products.
