“Thanks to its outstanding products, RTS has an excellent reputation on the global intercom scene,” says Penker. “The same goes for Telex in the aviation headset business. It is my aim to enhance the standing of the two brands in their respective markets and consolidate their already strong positioning, for I am convinced that the basis for future sales growth exists.”
“Josef Penker is well qualified for this responsible position,” says Kamil Swobodzinski, VP Sales EMEA. “He is dynamic and brings verve and commitment to the day-to-day business of the company. At the same time, he understands how to think in a structured and strategic manner, giving due weight in his decision-making to both medium- and long-term considerations.
I am confident that, with the help of his dedicated sales team, he will continue the success of recent years, as well as making an active contribution to the revenue growth of the brands RTS and Telex.”
