New talents, fresh faces and familiar ones will be at the On-StageStands/TMP Pro booth (5940)January 15, 2013
A full roster of fresh faces, familiar faces and new talent will be on hand in The Music People’s booth (#5940) in Anaheim, California. Among them will be several new reps on the On-Stage Stands team and TMP Pro Team.
All members of the new On-Stage Stands Sales team will be in attendance to meet with MI dealers about the profit potential that stem from turning over On-Stage Stands accessories on the retail floor. Heading up the team is Jeremy Payne, recently promoted to OSS Sales & Marketing Director. Jeremy’s success in his previous position as VIP Accounts Manager prepared him for the instrumental role he will play in the expansion of the On-Stage Stands product line. Two new National Sales Managers join Jeremy’s team: Vinny DeLaria and Tammo Hinzmann. Vinny is a keyboard player, Tammo plays the guitar, and both are as enthusiastic about music as they are about helping their customers succeed. The third addition to the team is strategic accounts manager Jason Cawley. A lifelong Connecticut resident, Jason earned a degree from Eastern Connecticut State University and has worked in sales and customer service for nearly a decade. The customer-service driven background of each member of the new OSS team ensures dealers will receive the same great service that they have come to expect from On-Stage Stands.
On the TMP Pro Distribution team, Jim Mingo was recently promoted to Director of Pro Audio Products, and will be on hand to meet with his customers, as well as pro-audio manufacturers and representatives to enhance TMP’s portfolio of brands. Jim has been a live sound technician for over 20 years. Since he started at TMP in 2005, he has continuously demonstrated a strong entrepreneurial leadership that has resulted in new business and lasting customer relationships. “Jim’s insights and passion have helped us realize potentials and develop new opportunities. He has done a great job and his promotion is well deserved”, said John Hennessey, Vice President of Operations. The newest addition to the TMP Pro team is Joe Johnson, Pro Audio Sales Manager, who started at TMP this past December. Joe’s impressive resume included supervisory and recruiting experience in the US Marine Corps which earned him a Meritorious Unit Citation from President Bill Clinton for outstanding performance and leadership, and four separate Letters of Merit for high productivity. Driven to learn and excel, Joe has had comprehensive sales training that focused on business-to-business sales techniques. An avid performer, he has also shared the stages and recording studios with members of world-renown heavy metal bands such as Slayer and Testament. His plethora of sales management experience, leadership and real world experience using pro-audio gear will allow him to lead the sales team in pro-audio distribution.
TMP will also be featuring some exciting new talent. Artist endorsee Day Above Ground and Singer/Songwriter Rod Washburn will be performing in Booth #5940. From Los Angeles, Day Above Ground brings a fresh, new blend of Rock & Hip Hop to the airwaves. A native of Connecticut, Rod Washburn will be performing solo acoustic versions of his songs from his two solo CD’s “Songs for a Sunday Morning” and “Who are you” as well as various covers.
