Irving, TX (July 16, 2018)—Forty-five years after founding Sound Productions, Charles Kitch has announced his retirement.
Over that time, the company has grown from a startup to a respected dealer and distributor for the pro-audio, video and lighting industry, as well as a backline rental specialist on a regional basis.
Throughout the years, Kitch placed an emphasis on valuing his team, providing growth opportunities and continually reinvesting in SoundPro’s future and people. Underscoring that leadership, the tenure of 40 percent of the company’s employees exceeds 15 years.
That in turn has led to a focus on professional customer service and support, and the company often works with vendors to offer free workshops, clinics and hands-on training for customers covering a range of products. Customers can also see, hear and operate digital mixers, speaker systems and lighting in the privacy of SoundPro’s product demo and training room.
Kitch leaves SoundPro under the leadership of former president, now CEO, Joshua Curlett, an eight-year veteran with the company. Going forward, the clear directive for SoundPro from Kitch is simply to “honor the past while building the future.”
