Ex-Sennheiser sales boss joins OLEX among new appointments

OLEX Communications, a specialist agency offering public relations and partnerships in the music and technology sectors, has announced two new senior appointments.

Joining the business as Non-Executive Chairman is Paul Whiting. Currently a member of the advisory board at d&b audiotechnik and previously President of Global Sales at Sennheiser, Paul brings over 40 years of audio experience to the company. Paul will support and guide OLEX through its future growth plans with his wealth of expertise and impeccable track record.

Paul commented: “I look forward to being a part of a thriving and ambitious team of people who have already proven excellent success with their clients. It’s a pleasure to be on board as Non-Executive Chairman, I am excited about what the future holds for OLEX.”

As well as this, Thomas Cullimore also joins OLEX as Business Development Director. Previously Category Manager/Buyer – Headphones and Mobile Audio at Dixons Carphone, Tom’s knowledge of the consumer electronics sector is second to none and will play a pivotal role in OLEX’s growth.

Tom commented: “I’m really excited to be joining OLEX and look forward to helping them build on what’s clearly been a fantastic 2018 for the company.”

In a little over 18 months, OLEX has quickly identified itself as a leading agency acting on behalf of some of the world’s most respected brands in music, audio and technology. Clients such as Bluesound, PSB Speakers, Bowers & Wilkins, Gregory Porter, Shure, Metropolis Studios, Singa, Clash Music and Rough Trade Records join the array of clients OLEX offer partnership marketing and public relations support for.

Welcoming these appointments, Steve Dalton, Director at OLEX, is reassured of the future. “Paul has demonstrated success at every level of the music and electronics industries and we could not have anyone better navigating the road ahead. Tom brings new energy to the team and was instrumental in driving the audio category at Dixons Carphone. Anything that Tom doesn’t currently know in audio, isn’t worth knowing.”
