In this new position, Jones will work with sound companies, tour production managers and artists in support of the company's sound reinforcement products, including the recently introduced M3D™ Line Array loudspeaker system.
"It's a real pleasure to welcome Buford to the Meyer Sound team," says Greg McVeigh, director of North American sales at Meyer Sound. "His experience and reputation are legendary.
