Arne Boye Nielsen joined the company in 1990 and has since then held various positions in the Group. In 1995, Arne Boye Nielsen was appointed Interim General Manager of Oticon Australia. When he returned to Denmark later that year, he was appointed President of Demant’s Diagnostics business area. When Demant in 2002 entered into a joint venture with German Sennheiser to develop and manufacture headsets under the Sennheiser Communications brand, this new business – a merger of Demant’s existing headset manufacturer (Danacom) and Sennheiser’s headset division – became part of the already existing Communications business area of which Arne was also President. After the demerger in 2020 where the activities of Sennheiser Communications were split between Sennheiser and Demant, Communications now operates under the EPOS brand.
