THIEL Audio has announced the appointment of Brad Paulsen as national sales manager, responsible for overseeing rep firms and distribution throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Paulsen has amassed a 17-year track record within the high performance audio community, employed by respected manufacturers such as Sooloos and B&K Components.
Paulsen brings a deep knowledge of the custom installation channel as well as a genuine appreciation for high performance audio with a particular affinity for loudspeakers.
“Brad represents a positive shift in direction for THIEL,” said company president Kathy Gornik. “I anticipate that THIEL will flourish with integrators as well as with dealers selling 2-channel audio and home theater. I anticipate that Brad’s vast relationships with reps and dealers will benefit THIEL as we prepare to release several new products in 2012.”
“I am thrilled to be joining the THIEL team—a company that exemplifies decades of integrity coupled with legendary performance,” Gornik said. “I am excited to present the THIEL lineup to top tier resellers across the US and Canada.”
Paulsen is also lauded by dealers and reps as one of the most effective trainers in the industry. “I have known Brad for over 30 years—he is an extremely passionate evangelist—everyone feeds on his energy when he is in the room,” said Peter Dyroff, president of the JARMAC Group, an independent sales representation firm in New England.
