Buena Park, CA – October 2010… Hosa Technology, the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician and audio/video professional, is pleased to announce the promotion of Ben Sweeney to the position of Director of Operations and International Sales. Possessing an extensive background in the music products and consumer electronics industries, including positions as sales and product manager with several prominent companies, Sweeney brings a wealth of experience to his new position at Hosa Technology.
In his new capacity, Sweeney will be charged with overseeing Hosa’s internal systems and processes, which includes 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.
Sweeney possesses an extensive track record in a variety of job capacities that make him well suited for his new responsibilities. A native of Australia, he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Film and Media Production from Australia’s Griffith University and also possesses a retail sales and marketing diploma from Monash University of Victoria, Australia. From 2001 to 2005, he 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. He moved to the United States and joined Hosa Technology in June of 2007 and has served as the company’s Operations Manager since November 2007.
“I’ve always had a fondness for Hosa and its products,” remarked Sweeney, “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,” said Jennifer Paquette, Hosa’s General Manager. “I’m delighted to have Ben working with us as we guide Hosa Technology into a new decade.”
