Georg Neumann GmbH President of Marketing & Finance, Wolfgang Fraissinet, is to leave the studio specialist in order to pursue new career opportunities in the audio and music industry.

Wolfgang FraissinetUntil his position has been filled, the Neumann management team will report directly to Sennheiser COO, Peter Claussen, who is also President R&D of Georg Neumann GmbH. ‘We thank Wolfgang for his huge contribution to the success of Georg Neumann for almost three decades,’ Claussen says. ‘We have a fantastic team at Neumann – together, we will ensure a smooth transition for our customers.’

With a solid background in premium brand marketing and an education in classical piano at Berlin Conservatory, business graduate Fraissinet began his career with Georg Neumann GmbH in 1990, shortly before the company was acquired by Sennheiser in 1991. During this transitional period, he was part of the team that helped to successfully integrate the Neumann business into that of the parent company, with a clear focus on the microphone portfolio.

In May 1992, he was made Head of Marketing & Sales, a position in which he professionalised the company’s international marketing and PR activities, thus raising awareness of the Neumann brand and firmly anchoring it in the premium recording segment. In 2000, Wolfgang became President, Marketing & Sales of Georg Neumann. When Neumann took over the Klein+Hummel monitoring loudspeaker business in 2010, he was instrumental in successfully establishing the new monitor line in the studio market.

Fraissinet successfully introduced a new CI/CD for Neumann.Berlin, culminating in a move to new headquarters in Berlin in 2015. Apart from his business endeavours, he has consistently pursued his musical interests, and has been involved in various international productions of classical, jazz and film music.

‘On behalf of the entire executive management board of Sennheiser, I would like to thank Wolfgang for his immense contribution to the company’s success,’ Claussen says. ‘With his determination and commitment, his wealth of expertise and close ties within the audio industry, Wolfgang has played a vital role in driving the Neumann business forward for almost three decades. His accomplishments include enlarging the studio specialist’s product portfolio and making Neumann a highly desirable brand not only in the studio field. We thank him and wish him all the best in his new endeavours.’
