The announcements were made by Lisa Kaufmann, Genelec Inc. Managing Director, and reflect the company’s ongoing sales growth in the U.S. market.

Whitcore is a highly accomplished, reputable, and results-driven sales leader with 20+ years of industry experience. Prior to joining the Genelec Inc. team, he managed U.S./Canadian east coast pro audio sales for Avid Technology, where he maintained a successful track record of exceeding sales quotas, retaining quality clients and enhancing team productivity, leading to a significant increase in customer satisfaction, repeat business and company profitability. He specializes in generating new business and developing relationships with his unique ability to immediately establish customer and team rapport, trust and loyalty. He is driven by his passion for music, great sound and technology.

Stewart, a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, draws on nearly 20 years of experience (12 of which have been at Genelec) in professional audio sales to high-end production facilities and individual artists around the globe. Prior to joining Genelec, as a project consultant he provided design expertise from equipment specification to layout and system integration. Stewart has designed and installed numerous wiring systems in recording studios as well as home theater and multi-media rooms. He will continue to employ his extensive contacts with major studios, engineers, producers, artists and record companies nationwide to further strengthen Genelec’s network of business partners.

“Recently, Paul and John have been cornerstones of our sales force nationwide,” stated Kaufmann. “We thank them for their ongoing dedication to the Genelec brand, and we look forward to their continued success in their new positions in 2018 and beyond.”

Genelec is celebrating 40 years of designing and manufacturing active loudspeakers, and over 10 years of its Smart Active Monitoring technology, which allows studio monitors to be networked, configured and calibrated for the user’s specific acoustic environment. Each Smart Active Monitor or subwoofer is equipped with advanced internal DSP circuitry, which tightly integrates with the GLM (Genelec Loudspeaker Manager) software application, running on Mac or PC, minimizing the room’s influence on the sound.
