Forsberg is based at DPA’s headquarters in Denmark where he will be responsible for overseeing global sales activity and helping to develop new prospects for DPA’s product portfolio, which covers pro audio, live sound, theatre, broadcast, house of worship, and installation markets.
With international sales and management experience and a proven track record of sustainable results in multiple organizations, DPA says Forsberg is ideally suited to this position. He is familiar with DPA’s structure and philosophy as he has been working for the company as a consultant since April 2017, helping to develop its sales and marketing systems. His skill set, which includes a scientific education (Bachelor in Computer Science, Physics and Mathematics, University of Copenhagen) and a commercial education (Executive MBA from Copenhagen Business School), ensures that he understands both the technical and commercial aspects of the DPA business.
Prior to joining DPA, Forsberg was global head of sales (special cargo) for the Maersk Line where he was responsible for sales revenue of more than $500 million. He also has extensive experience of marketing, WEB sales, and tech businesses and is adept at dealing with companies that, like DPA, sell through complex dealer networks.
Kalle Hvidt Nielsen, CEO of DPA Microphones, says: “Nikolaj already has a good knowledge of DPA’s core business and we believe he has the right leadership skills to develop and motivate our fantastic sales team. We are sure that Nikolaj will be an asset to DPA as we continue to grow our business around the world.”
“We have an excellent relationship with GerrAudio, who are our official distributors in Canada and already offer qualified local service support to our Canadian customers,” says Forsberg to Professional Sound. “I am looking forward to working with them to promote the DPA brand and further grow our market share in the region. DPA’s portfolio of products integrates perfectly with their other premium brands to provide end-users the ideal product configurations and design solutions.”
DPA is distributed in Canada by GerrAudio Distribution.
