Powersoft, a manufacturer of lightweight and energy efficient amplifier platforms, announced that it has appointed industry veteran Tom Knesel to the position of general manager, North America. Knesel, who will be located at the company’s U.S. headquarters in Kearny, N.J., and who will start on Oct. 7, will report directly to Luca Giorgi, sales & business development director, Powersoft. The announcement follows the relocation of Powersoft’s North American headquarters two years ago, and coincides with the company’s increased focus on the systems integration market and launch of the Mezzo amplifier platform earlier this year.
“We are very pleased to welcome Tom into the Powersoft family,” comments Luca Giorgi. “Two years ago we began a significant restructuring of our U.S. operations, which included relocating our headquarters to the east coast, hiring new operational and sales staff, and realigning our entire North American sales rep network. Having successfully completed these tasks, we are perfectly positioned in this region for sustained growth and net new revenue opportunities.”
