Audix announces sales promotions and hiring plans

US-based microphone manufacturer Audix has announced several changes within its operations and sales departments.

Chris Pagella (pictured above, left), who joined Audix in 2014 as control & purchasing manager, has been promoted to director of operations and will oversee the engineering department, as well as the management of the manufacturing and supply chain.

Gene Houck joined the company in 2000 as national sales manager and has now assumed the role of director of sales. Houck (pictured above, right) has been instrumental in developing the house of worship and contractor business for the organisation over the years, as well as identifying business development opportunities and bringing several Audix products to market, most notably, the M3 tri-element hanging ceiling microphone.

In his new role, Houck will be responsible for the development and support of the sales and marketing efforts in North America, while focusing on long term growth and increased revenue opportunities for Audix on a global scale.

“The markets Audix serves continue to change and it’s vital that our operations and sales departments are well structured, so we can continue to serve our customers with the utmost attention and expertise,” said Audix CFO Cindy Bigeh. “We believe that our employees are one of our most important assets and are delighted when we are able to develop our staff and promote from within.”

Meanwhile, Todd Brushwyler (pictured above, centre) – who joined Audix in 2013 – has assumed the role of national sales manager and will oversee both retail and install markets, reporting directly to Houck.
