New York (September 20, 2004)–Manhattan Center Productions (MCP) has announced that OBie O’Brien has joined the company as studio manager. O’Brien is a recording industry veteran with more than 20 years of experience in the recording studio business. At MCP, OBie will report directly to MCP’s president Peter Ross.
“I am delighted that OBie has joined our team,” said Ross. “She will enable us to better contend with the challenges that currently confront the recording industry. We can then pull the trigger on those innovative plans we have been working on to more fully avail of the tremendous assets we have here at the Manhattan Center.”
O’Brien comes to MCP after holding studio management positions at Edison Recording Studio in Manhattan, as well as at Mayfair and Counterpoint Studios, also in the metro New York area.

At MCP, O’Brien will be responsible for day-to-day operations, including bookings and the administration of the recording studios. She will generate additional business and assist MCP in its pursuit of several new business objectives. One of OBie’s immediate goals is to promote the Manhattan Center to recording engineers, film composers and location scouts in order to introduce them to the full range of recording, video production, video post production and DVD authoring services that MCP has to offer.
“I really like the vibe of the studios at Manhattan Center Productions,” commented O’Brien. “I’m looking forward to working with everyone here to be part of something with the potential to become such a great center for music in New York.”
As studio manager, O’Brien will work closely with chief engineer Joel Scheuneman and Dax Anderson, assistant studio manager & project manager.
