Jerry Placken joined Meyer Sound as sales manager for LCS Series products. The newly created position makes Placken the primary contact at Meyer Sound for all LCS Series product sales. In this position, he will foster customer relationships and work with all Meyer Sound departments on LCS Series issues.
Placken comes to Meyer Sound with extensive experience with LCS Series products gained from his tenure working for White Radio, the Canadian distributor for what was LCS Audio’s products before Meyer Sound’s 2005 acquisition of the company. Placken’s degree in Music Engineering Technology from the University of Miami (Fla.) means that his understanding of the products goes much deeper than that obtained from a sales viewpoint alone.
“Jerry worked quite closely with us during his time selling LCS Audio products at White Radio, so he has a very thorough knowledge of them,” says LCS Series executive director John McMahon. “That made him a natural choice to lead the charge as the LCS Series moves forward at Meyer Sound.”
Says lacken, “I always enjoyed working with the LCS Series products because their concepts are forward-looking, their products are powerful, their customer service is exceptional and their approach to development is driven by the needs of their customers. That’s some potent ammunition for a sales manager to have, plus I get to join Meyer Sound’s organization, which shares all those same qualities. I’m eager and excited to take LCS Series products to the next level.”
Placken will be based out of his home office in Ontario, Canada, and can be reached by phone at 416/460-9973.
