Westlake Village, CA (August 3, 2010)–Guitar Center Professional has named industry veteran Doug Simpson to spearhead a new sales initiative specifically geared toward providing the Las Vegas market with special access to all of GC Pro’s services, with a particular focus on the hotel/hospitality industry.
Simpson has more than 20 years of experience using and selling professional audio and video gear, and has lived and worked in the Las Vegas market for six years. Most recently, Simpson was the regional manager for Vegas-based MDM Group, where he managed all aspects of the Convention Services division.
States Simpson, “In Las Vegas, we have everything from major recording studios and houses of worship, to resorts, shows and nightclubs. GC Pro is already a major player in supplying the equipment that all these institutions need, and we look forward to being able to tailor things more specifically to the resorts, hotels and casinos that give Las Vegas its distinct personality. But what really sets GC Pro apart is the unmatched service and interpersonal relationships between our account managers and clients. In my new role, I plan to continue to emphasize these relationships. I know the Vegas market well, and being with people and consulting on equipment purchases and designs is where my passions and strengths lie.”
GC Pro director Rick Plushner says, “Doug is an accomplished account manager with a strong track record in all aspects of the professional AV industry. He has vast experience in identifying industry trends, consulting, accomplishing high technology solutions and delivering sales results. His personal communications skills are exemplary, and we look forward to letting him do the things he does best, in Vegas’ rich and diverse marketplace.”
