Now Yamaha will proceed with a new focus in the European market," said Hirofumi (Hogan) Osawa, operating officer, senior general manager of business division, audio products business unit, Yamaha. "With this move, we will be able to provide complete coverage of the region, quickly answering technical questions, guiding customers to the solutions that will best fit their applications, and fulfilling orders faster."
By optimizing the regional and technical knowledge of the European Yamaha sales channel, Yamaha is poised to provide customers with critical resources and support, including a new, dedicated IT sales channel team. The company's European team will be able to assist customers seeking to update their communications systems. From remote conferencing and huddle room applications to boardrooms and auditoriums, Yamaha's complete collaboration portfolio offers a total audio and video solution that enables effective, clear, and reliable communications in any environment.
