Sennheiser in Old Lyme, Conn., has appointed Kevin Waehner to Product Specialist, Professional Systems; Jack Ewer to Area Sales Manager, Professional Systems; and Adam Irby to Area Sales Manager, Retail. Sennheiser states that the new appointments strengthen its domestic product and sales teams and reflect the company's ongoing growth during an uncertain economic environment.

John Falcone, president and CEO of Sennheiser USA, says, "I would like to welcome Kevin, Jack and Adam to the Sennheiser family and look forward to their strategic contributions in these important positions. We are very pleased to be able to attract the best talent in the industry despite the unpredictable nature of the economy; this is a strong example of our continued growth."
