Consumer electronics industry veteran David Goldschmidt has joined Velodyne (http://www.velodyne.com), a leading manufacturer of high-performance and technically innovative audio products, as its National Sales Director, the company announced today.
Goldschmidt brings to Velodyne an extensive background in consumer electronics product development and retail sales management. From 1996 to 2009, Goldschmidt was Vice President of Sales and Purchasing with Airport Wireless, where he was responsible for opening some 60 airport-based high-tech retail electronics stores today organized under the APW Brands umbrella.
More recently, he held senior management roles with two companies based in King of Prussia, PA – Able Planet, where he was Eastern Sales Manager, and Direct Line Marketing, a company he owned that facilitated sales of new high-technology electronics direct from distributors to retailers.
At Velodyne, Goldschmidt will put his experience to work at a time when the company – long recognized as the leading manufacturer of high-performance, low-distortion powered subwoofers – expands its line of technically innovative headphones first introduced in 2011.
“David Goldschmidt quite literally grew up in the fast-paced world of consumer electronics retailing, which makes him uniquely qualified to help Velodyne establish relationships with some of America’s best-known retailers,” said Marta Hall, Velodyne president. “His understanding of the retail environment and the importance of leveraging Velodyne’s historic leadership in sound reproduction will be invaluable as Velodyne grows in the months and years to come.”
