Fairview Heights, IL (April 9, 2009)–Heil Sound has appointed Greg McVeigh as sales manager for its Pro Audio division.
For the past two years McVeigh, and his company Guesthouse Projects, has been handling Heil’s PR and artist relations’ duties. The new position will be adjunct to those duties, and Guesthouse Projects remains an independent public/artist relations firm.
McVeigh says, “For me, this move is a natural progression. Heil Sound has great products and some real momentum right now in the marketplace. What was lacking was a ‘friend at the factory’ for the sales reps; someone with experience in sales management who can make things happen for them. Heil is in a very good position to ‘go large,’ and I want to help make that happen.”
Heil Sound vice president, Sarah Heil, adds, “Everyone at Heil Sound is very excited that we have Greg on board as our sales manager. Greg has an incredible grasp of what it takes to manage a successful sales network. We have great a great group of reps. and Greg has become an integral part of the entire Heil Sound team.”
In related news, Heil Sound has appointed two new rep firms for its U.S. sales efforts. Tandem Sales & Marketing (Jim Giordano, principal) will handle southern California, and AVA Audio Video Associates (Ben Shipman, principal) will cover Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska.
