As part of a needed expansion of its North American sales operation, Martin Audio has appointed Jonathan "JP" Parker to the position of national sales manager.

Parker will be responsible for managing the company’s growing sales rep force network and expanding its contracting, installation, and club business throughout the US from his office in Lawrenceville, Georgia.

An industry veteran, Parker brings over 16 years of sales and marketing management experience in the pro audio industry, most recently as regional sales manager for Crown International where he developed and grew the highest sales producing region in the US, and cultivated several key OEM relationships for new market penetration.

Prior to that, Parker held regional and national sales management positions with Bose Corporation, TOA Electronics, and ASPI Digital. Parker is a singer-songwriter and dedicated musician with music being a driving force in his professional and personal life.

"JP’s extensive experience in commercial installation, contracting, and club business makes him an invaluable addition to the Martin Audio team in the US," says Rob Hofkamp, Martin Audio's director of North American operations. "We look forward to his positive contribution to the steady growth and popular acceptance of our products."
