RTW, a leading vendor of visual audio meters for professional broadcast, production, post-production and quality control, announces the appointment of Christopher Spahr (pictured) as the company’s new U.S. Director of Sales and Operations. Spahr, who began his new role on March 1, 2013, is based out of RTW’s new U.S. facility, located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Spahr is working along with Group One, RTW’s exclusive U.S. distributor, to support the company’s dealer base in the U.S. In his new position, Spahr will draw upon his extensive professional background in audio sales and engineering to establish the new sales and service protocols at the U.S. facility.

“The opening of our new U.S. facility marks quite a milestone for RTW,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO, RTW. “Our customers in the United States are very important to us. With his expertise in sales and business development and his years spent as a recording engineer, Christopher has the background and passion necessary to support our customers and dealers and to help expand RTW’s brand further. We are thrilled to have Christopher join our team!”

Spahr joins RTW from Sennheiser, where he served as that company’s market development manager. Prior to this, he held sales positions at various companies, including Richard S. Pass Associates Inc., Peirce-Phelps Inc. and Swank Audio Visual. In addition, he has spent time as a recording engineer, providing audio engineering and production services to a roster of top-tier record companies and artists, including a Grammy-winning Latin jazz CD with Arturo Sandoval.

Spahr holds a Recording Arts Specialized Associate’s Degree from Full Sail University and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Barry University.

“I am honored to join RTW as part of its U.S. expansion plans,” says Spahr. “With its portfolio of innovative audio solutions, team of expert engineers and commitment to value, RTW is a wonderful fit for the pro audio industry here in the United States. I look forward to working with my new colleagues to build up RTW’s stellar reputation further and ensure the company continues to maintain that success.”
