Kranepool and Whearty will both report directly to Greg Beebe, president of Sennheiser Electronic Corporation.

"Our product portfolio continues to expand to meet the diverse needs of our customers — both in the consumer and business arenas. Keith's many years of proven leadership experience in CE — particularly in mobile and peripheral devices — and Bill's incumbent knowledge of the telecommunications and call center markets will yield significant competitive advantages for Sennheiser in 2013 and beyond,” commented Beebe.

 Kranepool is a 20-year veteran of the consumer electronics industry, having held sales and marketing roles at Sony Electronics, Bose and D&M Holdings, among others. Most recently, Kranepool was sales and marketing VP for Velocity Micro's computer, tablet and peripheral businesses.
