Dynaudio, the renowned Danish high-end loudspeaker specialist, has announced that
its newly appointed CEO for North and South America, Andrew Werdean, is fueling the
company’s ambitious growth across the Americas. Werdean has announced key
promotions, a new hire, extension of the Dynaudio reseller network, and strategic
initiatives designed to build the company’s presence and enrich the customer

Werdean, who previously served as vice president of sales for the company’s North
American business, is a CE leader whose 30 years of industry experience includes
work with well-known manufacturers such as RTI, Klipsch, and Jamo, as well as the
establishment of two successful installation companies. In leading the Dynaudio sales
efforts, he has focused on extending the company’s integration business while
overseeing marketing and product management.

“All of these amazing changes will prepare the company for extensive sales growth for
years to come,” said Werdean. “While we’re making significant additions across
management, we’re also preparing a pipeline of innovative product releases. All of
these factors will help Dynaudio maintain its position as a major player in the U.S. —
and throughout the Americas.”

Dynaudio’s Michael Manousselis has been promoted from his position as director of
marketing for North America to vice president of operations, North and South
America. Manousselis has been with the company for 22 years, and in his new role he
will continue to manage marketing activities along with the day-to-day operations at
Dynaudio’s Glenview, Illinois, headquarters in the U.S. Manousselis is working closely
with Werdean to implement and execute initiatives supporting Dynaudio’s growth
strategy in the Americas.

“Dynaudio is experiencing tremendous growth worldwide, and we are thrilled about
the changes being implemented in the Americas to facilitate future expansion,” said
Manousselis. “The broadening of our sales organisation and the addition of an
innovative series of custom installation models to our traditional high-end loudspeaker
product ranges have enabled us to bring Dynaudio’s quality, performance and
craftsmanship to a much wider customer base and build a greater market presence for
the brand. We truly look forward to the challenge ahead and to the myriad
opportunities presented by existing Dynaudio models and the next-generation
products under development in Denmark — products that will bring Dynaudio into new
market segments and product categories.”

Additionally, Dynaudio is building its partner network. Audio Americas, a well-known

Audio Americas boasts a product portfolio featuring some of the world’s most
prestigious consumer electronics brands. The company has built a stellar reputation
by ensuring superior service, focused strategies, and state-of-the-art quality control
and delivery systems.

coming years, we will work diligently to establish Dynaudio partnerships with leading
high-end audio dealers throughout the Latin American region.”
