Dallas-based FirstCom Music, provider of production music via CD and the Web, announced that Michael J. Baer has been named general sales manager.
Baer, a 26-year industry veteran, re-joined FirstCom Music in March of 1997 to introduce and market the OneMusic (R) Library featuring LiquidTrax (SM). After the introduction, Baer stayed with FirstCom as a regional manager working with production facilities, audio and video post houses, advertising agencies and television stations. "I can't think of a more satisfying and fun business to be in than this one," Baer said. "I have always had a deep respect and love for music, and this is as close as I can get to it without being a composer or musician. When one of our clients uses our music to complete their production, I get a terrific feeling that we are helping people to bring their concept to fruition."
In addition, the following FirstCom employees have been promoted due to a sales restructuring: Sharon Baer, senior regional manager/broadcast; Jason Davis, senior regional manager/facilities; Andy Murdock, senior regional manager/broadcast; Leann Oliver; senior regional manager/facilities; Laurie Raso, regional manager/broadcast; Mary McFall, regional manager/facilities; Shane McIntosh, regional manager/corporate; David Randall, regional manager/broadcast; Karrin Wilcocks, regional manager/facilities; Melissa Rapp, account representative/radio; and Elizabeth Sanders, prospector/facilities.
