DPA Microphones appoints vice president of sales for APAC


DPA Microphones has announced the appointment of Thomas Frederiksen as its vice president of sales for the APAC region. Frederiksen will head up DPA’s regional office in Hong Kong, which was opened in 2013 to support the company’s sales partners throughout Asia.

Frederiksen was formerly the managing director of Shure Japan. Throughout his career he has held senior sales and management positions for a range of companies, including a four year tenure at Brüel & Kjær, the company that was the forerunner of DPA microphones.

Kalle Hidvt Nielsen, CEO of DPA, commented: “I am very pleased to have Thomas on board. APAC is a very important region for DPA. I know that, with his strong background in the pro audio market and his extensive experience in Asia, and in particular Japan, he will help drive the APAC team to develop even closer links with our distributors, dealers and customers across the region.”

Frederiksen said: “I am delighted to be joining DPA at such an exciting point in its history and I am looking forward to working for a company with such a strong range of high-end products across so many different markets. Personally, I see this as an exciting challenge because it will allow me to learn about sectors such as theatre and broadcast that are new to me. However, I am also confident that my knowledge of the Asian market will significantly benefit DPA and help the company consolidate the success it is already having in the region.”
