Alango, a leading supplier of voice and audio enhancement technologies for the communication and entertainment markets, has signed a representation agreement with Hans Zwart, a 30+ year veteran of the hearing health industry. According to the agreement Mr. Zwart will create sales and distribution channels on the Continent and in the United Kingdom for Alango’s “Wear & Hear” hearables product line.

Veteran Hearing Professional Brings Market Knowledge and Connections

Mr. Zwart has accumulated more than 30 years’ experience in the hearing health industry, for the most part on an international level. He has held such positions as Marketing & Sales Director of ExSilent BV, a company which developed innovative hearing healthcare products; Managing Director at Varibel Innovations BV, a developer of directional hearing glasses based on digital technology; and Sales Consultant at Otoharmonics LLC, a developer of custom neuroscience-based sound therapy for patients with tinnitus. Furthermore, Mr. Zwart has been trained as an acoustician.

“We are pleased to welcome Mr. Zwart to the Wear & Hear team at Alango,” states Dr. Alexander Goldin, CEO and founder of Alango Technologies, Ltd. “I am confident that his deep understanding of the hearing challenges experienced by over a billion people worldwide, coupled with his connections to leading hearing product distribution channels in Europe, will serve to bring our innovative hearing enhancement solutions to those who need them most.”

“I am honored and motivated to join the Wear & Hear team and share its journey to bring affordable hearing enhancement to all European countries,” states Mr. Zwart. “The ability to improve people’s quality of life with a ground-breaking product will be both rewarding and challenging, and I intend to recruit the most qualified partners to accomplish this task.”
