Hamburg / Fort Lauderdale, 1 October, 2021: Music service provider Radiopark is opening a new office in North America. From 1 October 2021 on, Marco Santomauro will represent the Hamburg-based music provider in the newly established Radiopark North America, close to US customers from the hospitality, retail, cruise, and hotel industries.
Radiopark North America is the third Radiopark office to open outside Germany, following Dubai and Vienna. The new office is intended to be more active in the American market for the Hamburg sound specialists and to serve existing customers from the United States even better: „We already have renowned clients from the United States: Seabourn, Silversea Cruises (as part of Royal Caribbean) and Lindblad Expeditions are just a few big names that we count among our portfolio. With the new location, we create more proximity to our growing clientbase and can work even better with them to design the perfect music program for their brand essence,“ explains Radiopark founder Arndt-Helge Grap.
Radiopark North America: know-how meets passion for music
From Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Marco Santomauro will manage and operate Radiopark’s US-American business. As home to many major cruise operators, Florida is the perfect location for Radiopark’s new office. With Santomauro, the company gained a true expert in international affairs: as former Export Sales Director for Paulaner, he has built bridges between German culture and numerous international countries in the past, including Dubai, Korea, China, India, and Malaysia. Before that, he worked for the beer brand as State Manager in the Bible Belt – which is why he knows the market of his long-time adopted country like no other. Radiopark also benefits from his passion for music. He still plays the trumpet and is a passionate jazz and classical music fan.
Perfect sound design for cruise, retail and hospitality clients
Radiopark North America promises its clients customized music programs and a satisfaction guarantee: With their holistic approach, the Hamburg-based music experts work closely with clients to implement a music profile that reflects the company’s CI and brand essence. The right sound is delivered contextually via in-house music players – perfectly matched to the season, time of day, target group and location. „In the U.S., we have a strong focus on the cruise industry. In this area, Radiopark already brings a lot of expertise to the table – I’m excited to now represent it directly on site,“ explains Marco Santomauro.
Radiopark supplies individual music programs for use in cruise shipping, the hotel industry, gastronomy and retail. The Hamburg-based media company – with offices in Berlin, Vienna Dubai and Fort Lauderdale – provides customized solutions to customers in over 40 countries. From a constantly growing music archive of over one million tracks, the Radiopark team develops specially designed, time-based music programs for all desired requirements. Thanks to professional planning, reliable and flexible hardware and the patented software, no permanent web connection is necessary – a great relief especially in the shipping industry. As a full-service provider, Radiopark is not only the right contact for music programs, but also for audio planning and also supplies the appropriate loudspeaker and amplifier systems.
