Say Hello to our New Senior Global Product Line Manager, Dan Vandenbergh
It’s exciting when we bring in new talent from outside to fortify the Luxury Audio product development team. Meet Dan Vandenbergh, our new Sr. GPLM for Revel, JBL Premium & JBL Synthesis loudspeakers. In his new role, Dan will drive the development of new industry leading products using the breadth of technologies and expertise available to him at Harman.
Dan is an audio product guy, through and through. As a kid, he wasn’t allowed to touch his father’s B&O system after he “played the platter” on the turntable. He took every piece of audio gear in the house apart to see how it worked. And then, as a teenager, he got bit hard by the car audio bug — perhaps the ground-pounding bass, or perhaps the high-end integration did him in. In any event, that started him on a lifelong mission to create those powerful experiences that bring you closer to your music, and connects you to the artist emotionally.
He went off to Vanderbilt and graduated with degrees in Electrical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. He followed his passion to Pioneer, then Jensen and Rockford Fosgate, always focusing on products that render music with authority. After 25 years in the business, he has finally seen the light and has come to the Luxury Audio side. Finally, an opportunity to develop product that he has lusted after all these years!
You can expect to see Dan’s influence on new products launching later this year and next. Look for him to reach out to the market often to understand what our customers want, what our dealers demand and where the industry is heading.
Please join us in welcoming Dan to the team!
