Las Vegas – Kenwood sales VP Dave Hoag has been promoted to senior VP, responsible for sales and marketing.
The nine-year Kenwood veteran replaces 10-year Kenwood veteran Keith Lehmann, who recently left the company as executive VP.
Lehmann was also senior VP of JVC Mobile Entertainment, but parent company JVC Kenwood Americas hasn’t said whether it will fill that position.
In May 2103, Lehmann took on responsibility for JVC Mobile’s sales, marketing and business strategy while maintaining his Kenwood responsibilities. He assumed the title of senior VP of JVC Mobile, and his Kenwood title changed from senior VP to executive VP of consumer electronics upon assuming JVC responsibilities.
JVC and Kenwood merged in 2008 to form JVC Kenwood Holdings, and in 2011, the two companies’ U.S. car audio groups began to share office space in the same Long Beach building.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
