Hosa Technology, which offers analog and digital connectivity solutions for musicians and audio/video professionals, and is based in Buena Park, Calif., announces the promotion of Ben Sweeney (pictured) to the position of Director of Operations and International Sales. The company states that Sweeney possesses an extensive background in the music products and consumer electronics industries—including positions as sales and product manager with several prominent companies—and brings a wealth of experience to his new position.

Sweeney will oversee Hosa’s internal systems and processes, including maintenance of the company’s Website. He will also serve as the liaison between internal departments and third-party providers, including manufacturer’s representatives. Further, Sweeney will be responsible for implementing data management and warehouse procedures, as well as coordinating with the company’s international distributors in the areas of sales and marketing.

From 2001 to 2005, Sweeney served as national sales manager for Intelliware Australia, a distributor of products from Mark of the Unicorn, Sony Media Software, Cakewalk and Hosa Technology/Zaolla Silverline, among others. From 2005 to 2007, he was the national retail sales manager for Australia’s Sibelius Software. In June 2007 Sweeney moved to the U.S. and joined Hosa Technology; he has served as the company’s operations manager since November 2007.

“I’ve always had a fondness for Hosa and its products,” Sweeney says, “and was delighted to join the company after arriving in the States. With my promotion to Director of Operations and International Sales, I have a tremendous opportunity to help take the company to the next level. Hosa enjoys an enviable reputation in the markets we serve and, with an incredibly diverse product line, I believe there is a wealth of sales and marketing opportunity that remains undiscovered. I am honored to be part of the Hosa team that, collectively, will be charged with broadening the company’s reach.”

“With a skill set that perfectly complements the goals and objectives of our company, Ben brings a proven track record and an inexhaustible level of enthusiasm that, I’m confident, will be contagious,” says Jennifer Paquette, Hosa’s general manager. “I’m delighted to have Ben working with us as we guide Hosa Technology into a new decade.”
