KITCHNER, ON--TC Group Americas announced today that Marc Bertrand will succeed John Maier as CEO effective July 31, 2009. TC Group Americas Inc., formed in January 2009, distributes Tannoy, Lab.gruppen, TC Electronic, TC-Helicon, Dynaudio Acoustics, Lake, and Linn products in the US and Canada.

Anders Fauerskov, CEO of corporate parent TC Group, confirms the appointment. “The board of directors is very pleased to announce that Marc Bertrand has accepted the position of CEO for TC Group Americas and we are fully confident that under Marc’s leadership the company will continue its strong growth and performance. Marc brings nearly 20 years of industry experience to the position and has a proven track record of success in our organization.”

Bertrand has played a critical role for the Tannoy brand’s North American sales since 1996. He was tapped to serve as the managing director of Tannoy North America in 2004 and grew the company’s sales by double-digits each year. Bertrand most recently acted as Vice President of Sales for the commercial installation division for TC Group Americas, while concurrently overseeing operations of the Canadian-based headquarters and sitting on the TCGA board of directors with Maier.

Maier started with TC Group’s North American distributorship in 2002 and was promoted shortly thereafter to CEO. Under Maier’s leadership, sales from 2003-2006 grew by 40 percent putting the company on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing privately held companies in the US.

Fauerskov continues, “Over the past seven years John has been instrumental to our success in North America. We are equally grateful for John’s tremendous contributions to all of TC Group and fortunate to have a strong successor in Marc to continue the strong growth and commitment to superior customer service at TC Group Americas.”
