Digidesign is pleased to announce several organizational changes to the company’s sales and marketing team.
Christopher Bock, who has been instrumental to Digidesign’s sales and marketing success for more than 19 years, has taken on a new role as vice president of tactical business development. In his new role, Bock will initially lead Digidesign’s live sound sales team, and ongoing, will drive new business development acting as a key contributor to the creation of strategic partnerships and market growth opportunities.
Paul Foeckler has filled Bock’s previous role as worldwide vice president of sales and marketing. After being hired in 1993 as a product specialist, Foeckler quickly rose through the ranks of Digidesign’s sales organization to lead the company’s marketing efforts as director of corporate marketing. Recognized for his insight and focus in that role, Foeckler was promoted to the company’s executive management team in 2005.
Tim Carroll has assumed a new role within the organization as senior director, worldwide sales, reporting to Foeckler. In his previous position as director, sales Americas, Carroll was the driver of sales in Digidesign’s largest territory. As senior director, Carroll will contribute his extensive knowledge of key sales issues and day-to-day channel marketing needs to the sales team.
Chris Hammond—previously Digidesign’s Midwest sales territory manager— has become director, sales Americas, reporting to Carroll.
“Christopher Bock’s amazing contribution and track record at Digidesign is a large reason for our company’s success. I’m gratified to have ‘CB’ overseeing our efforts in a key new area for the company’s growth – live sound,” says Dave Lebolt, Digidesign’s general manager. “I’m so excited about this team. With Paul Foeckler, Tim Carroll, Chris Hammond and CB, we have an incredible combination of skills that are extremely complementary to one another to take us into the future.”
