Buena Park, CA â€“ February 2009 â€¦ Hosa Technology, the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician and distributor of Da-Cappo Micro Microphones throughout the Americas, is pleased to announce the appointment of Jennifer Paquette to the position of General Manager. Paquetteâ€™s promotion to her new position within the organization is expected to dramatically increase Hosaâ€™s operating efficiencies while fostering enhanced communications within the companyâ€™s extensive dealer network and distribution channels. Her appointment took effect in December 2008.
In her new position, Paquette oversees a wide range of company operations. Her responsibilities include managing and leading all sales functions, including the strengthening of team building initiatives aimed at advancing sales. Similarly, she focuses on strengthening all aspects of customer relations. Equally important, Paquette coordinates with the companyâ€™s department managers to increase inter-departmental efficiencies and assumes an active role in Hosaâ€™s budgetary and financial transactions.
With a tenure dating back to 1995, Paquette is well versed in all aspects of Hosaâ€™s business. She started with the Company as a data entry clerk in the Customer Service department. From there, Paquette advanced to the position of Sales Coordinator, Domestic and International, where she processed and fulfilled order requestsâ€”handling shipping arrangements, backorder management, along with invoicing and payment processing. For the past six years, Paquette held the position of Assistant Sales Manager, Purchasing. In this capacity, she was in charge of purchasing and monitoring inventoryâ€”including the responsibilities of analyzing inventory issues to accurately forecast inventory requirements. Similarly, she was tasked with maintaining relations with Hosaâ€™s major accounts.
â€œIâ€™m honored to accept this promotion,â€? states Paquette. â€œOver the years, Iâ€™ve been extremely fortunate to have been involved in a wide range of Company operations and I have learned much along the way. Hosa has been a great place to foster my career and my promotion to General Manager is yet another chance to help the company grow and advance to the next level. I look forward to the new challenges this position presents and I am very optimistic about the business opportunities ahead.â€?

Few people are as well versed in the companyâ€™s business as Jennifer, and her experience will be invaluable to us as we move forward. Everyone here at Hosa is optimistic about her new position. Iâ€™m absolutely confident Jennifer will continue to make significant contributions to our company efforts.â€?
