Bowers & Wilkins strengthens North American sales team, adding audio industry veteran as Director of Sales, North America Performance Audio

Kevin Wolff to oversee channel sales for all of the brand's performance audio accounts including the recently launched 700 series, PX headphones and DB subwoofers

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bowers & Wilkins, the British loudspeaker brand known for its high-performance audio products, is proud to announce continued momentum for its sales channel team with the addition of audio industry veteran Kevin Wolff. Wolff is the latest addition to the team, and will report to Chief Revenue Officer Richard Campbell.

Kevin Wolff, Director of Sales, North America Performance Audio

Wolff brings more than 30 years' experience in the audio space to the growing sales team – having worked for brands like Magnolia Hi-Fi, Sumiko, Vienna Acoustics, and – most recently – AudioQuest. His passion for audio and his knowledge of the global audio distribution and independent channel will help strengthen existing partnerships with customers and dealers, and solidify Bowers & Wilkins growth in the industry through its CI and passive loudspeaker products.

Wolff is the latest senior hire on the sales team since Richard Campbell took over Bowers & Wilkins global sales in July of this year. Reporting directly to CEO Gideon Yu, Campbell is leveraging his extensive experience in consumer electronics sales and marketing, along with his passion for the brand, to strengthen Bowers & Wilkins' premier position as the leader for performance audio. 

Campbell joined Bowers & Wilkins having held multiple executive sales and marketing roles within the consumer electronics industry previously, including at companies such as Samsung, Panasonic and Olympus. Most recently he served as the VP of Sales and Marketing at iRobot Corporation.

"The global dealer network for Bowers & Wilkins provides a critical interface with our customer base, and are in many ways our most valuable brand ambassadors," said Campbell. "Reinforcing their support will be a key priority for my team as Bowers & Wilkins looks to expand our leadership in the custom install and consumer-ready audio solutions space."

"Given my 30 year audio career, to say I'm a Bowers & Wilkins fan is an understatement," said Wolff. "I look forward to working alongside Rich and team as we continue to grow the dealer network and reiterate our commitment to distinguishing the Bowers & Wilkins brand and reinforcing the brand's acoustic leadership."

In addition to the leadership additions, Bowers & Wilkins has made considerable new investments in the product management team based out of its Steyning Research Establishment in the U.K. This investment includes the expansion of dedicated product management support to continue to grow the passive loud speaker and custom install products. 

Continued Audio Product Momentum

The new sales team additions come after a busy quarter at Bowers & Wilkins during which a number of well-received luxury audio products have been introduced including:

  • The 700 Series. Building off the success of the 800 Series Diamond, the recently announced 700 Series makes ultra-high-end sound quality more attainable and accessible than ever. Featuring a Carbon Dome Tweeter, the same solid body Tweeter-on-top design of the beloved 800 series, Continuum and Aerofoil Profile Cones, and topped off with an elegant design and near flawless acoustic sound quality, the 700 Series represents Bowers & Wilkins' continued commitment to high-end hi-fi solutions.
  • The PX Wireless, Noise-Cancelling Headphone. Paired with the unmatched audio acoustics Bowers & Wilkins is known for, and the intuitive UX of some of Silicon Valley's best designed CE products, the PX headphones exemplify the continued growth of Bowers & Wilkins in the CE space. With adaptive noise cancellation and responsive power, the PX comes with over 22 hours of battery life, making it the perfect headphone for busy travellers who do not wish to sacrifice on sound quality.
  • The DB Series Subwoofer. The DB Series contains four subwoofers designed to deliver incredibly powerful, tight and agile bass. They are the most powerful active subwoofers Bowers & Wilkins has produced, and feature the same Aerofoil cone bass drivers used in flagship 800 Series Diamond, combined with bespoke features such as Dynamic EQ and Room EQ to ensure precision performance in every space.
