Greensboro, NC (February 25, 2010)–WorxAudio Technologies has appointed Mike Hartis to the newly created position of national sales manager.
A veteran of the touring sound business, music club co-owner, and a manager for a major equipment rental firm, Hartis’ background and experience make him qualified to assume his new responsibilities with WorxAudio Technologies. He will be located in Concord, NC.
Most recently, and for nearly 11 years, Hartis owned and operated a regional live sound reinforcement services business headquartered in Concord. Prior to that, he was majority owner of Mike and Steve’s Place, a restaurant/club in Concord.
In addition, Hartis spent nine years with equipment rental company, United Rentals, where he started as branch manager/area manager, overseeing four of the company’s branch offices before being promoted to district operations manager. In that post, Hartis was responsible for 14 United Rentals branch offices with a total gross annual revenue exceeding $35 million.
Hartis comments on his new position: “With a highly respected and comprehensive product line, WorxAudio Technologies represents a terrific opportunity for me to take an active sales role with a well-known loudspeaker manufacturer. I’ve always had a passion for audio, and this new position enables me to become further involved with a business that is near and dear to my heart, while enabling me to flex my skills as a sales professional. It’s the perfect combination, and I’m really looking forward to digging in.”
“I’m very pleased to have Mike joining our effort,” says Hugh Sarvis, WorxAudio Technologies’ CEO and director of engineering. “Mike’s combination of pro audio application background and sales skills makes him a terrific choice for national sales manager. He understands what the live and installed sound professional looks for, and this is critically important when it comes to directing a prospective customer to the most appropriate products. I’m confident he’ll do well and produce the results we’re looking for.”
