Kharma's

Team

Kharma is well known for its rich history and innovations in high-end audio. The journey started in the early eighties (1982), but before that time the passion for high-end audio was already present. Charles van Oosterum was intrigued by high-end audio at a young age and started working on different products, which later on turned into Kharma we know today. Throughout the years Charles was able to gather a team of highly dedicated and passionate people to work on creating the ultimate dream and working on a lifelong journey in high-end audio.

Mitchell van Oosterum

Mitchell is the operational manager of Kharma International and as you can see from his last name, he is also the son of Charles. He knows a lot about high-end audio and technologies thanks to his education in electro technique and mechatronics. When he started working at Kharma, he first worked as an engineer, however throughout the years we’ve noticed Mitchell has a very good detailed eye for processes and company improvements. Which makes him a perfect operational manager.

In his spare time Mitchell loves to spend time with his family and friends, but back in the days he was also a very fanatic hockey player. He still enjoys sports like bicycling, swimming and fitness.

Vivienne van Oosterum

Vivienne is int. sales & marketing manager at Kharma and as you can read from her name as well, she is the daughter of Charles. So we are definitely a proud family company. Vivienne knows a lot about marketing thanks to her educations (bachelor & masters) in Marketing and all her sales experience comes from running her own company at age 21 and later on being internationally active in sales for Kharma. She’s a great addition to the team, because she knows her father very well and is able to make marketing sense out of all the ideas shared between them.

If you would ask Vivienne where here passion lies, it is definitely with horses. She is a passionate dressage rider and aims to be one of the best in her sports, hoping to make a difference by focussing on harmony, friendship and fun.

So if she doesn’t reply quickly, you can probably find her around the stables or on a horse.
