On top of a warm hug for everyone he meets, Cota brings with him a background as a worship pastor and vocalist. “I’m a professional singer and musician by trade so I can relate to many of the challenges our customers face out in the field,” he explains. “I really enjoy the education component of what I do and the ability I have to help customers solve their audio challenges.”

Self-confessed foodie Hall is a seasoned account manager with a real passion for growth. “I have serviced customers, managed projects, and dealt with international distributors for a great deal of my career,” he reflects. “I enjoy helping people, so the best thing about dealing with my customers here is that I get to provide a solution to a problem they may be experiencing or help them with their needs.”
