Eppingen, GERMANY, January 30, 2024 — Shure is positioning itself for global growth and enhanced customer support with a new sales structure.  

Led by José A. Rivas, Vice President and Chief Sales Officer at Shure, the new global sales structure was reengineered to be closer to customers and end users. The new structure will cover six geographic sales organizations to maximize the global presence of the company -- North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, and South Asia, East Asia and Southeast Asia and Pacific.

“This new organizational structure has been designed to enhance operational efficiencies and expedite growth initiatives, aligning Shure for success in the ever-evolving market landscape,” said Rivas. “We believe this change will allow us to be more connected with our customers and end users and will bring our extraordinary solutions even closer to the market.”

Marco Weissert, Associate Vice President at Shure will lead Europe. Marco's journey at Shure began as the Director of Human Resources and Processes for EMEA. Recognized for his contributions, he was subsequently appointed as the Managing Director for Shure's Central European direct market entities. Building upon his achievements, Marco then assumed the leadership of Shure's Middle East and Africa entity, further expanding his international experience, and strengthening Shure's presence in these dynamic markets.

 With a profound understanding of management and business development, Marco's ability to introduce new go-to-market models, along with his expertise in sales and market development strategies, have provided him with valuable insights to navigate complex corporate landscapes. His focus on building effective teams, streamlining and enhancing overall processes has been shaping the Company's positioning for successful growth in the European market.
