Kenwood USA announced it has elevated Seth Halstead to national training and content development manager.
Halstead was given the new position after more than three years serving as eastern regional training manager for the brand, in which he was instrumental in developing training content and materials for Kenwood and Kenwood Excelon retailers. The promotion will enable Kenwood to create a more efficient training and resources program for dealers, the company said.
“Seth has been an invaluable resource to both our retailers and our reps in the field,” said Scott Caswell, senior marketing manager for Kenwood. “He has a natural inclination to help others while at the same time seeing the most efficient ways to do it. We are adjusting how we train and keep retailers by using more online resources, and Seth has been a key catalyst of making that happen.”

In his new role, Halstead will supplement in-person training by managing and providing content for the company’s online training resources, including the Kenwood University program and social media. He will also assess training needs with input from retailers, said Kenwood, and work with internal teams to develop content and resources to meet those needs.
