TRIAD SPEAKERS APPOINTS MIKE BUDD TO NATIONAL SALES MANAGER
Denver, CO - September 14, 2006 - Larry Pexton, President of Triad Speakers Inc., announces that effective September 1, 2006, Mike Budd has been promoted to National Sales Manager, reporting to Director of Sales and Marketing, Paul Scarpelli.
Budd’s new responsibilities include managing Triad’s inside sales staff, two regional managers (David Bailey and Bruce Franklin), and all domestic and international independent sales representatives.
Budd has been with Triad for over 13 years, having started with the company in 1992 as Shipping Manager and growing into the role of Sales Coordinator, thus becoming a member of the Management Team. Most recently, for the past 2 years, Budd has been Triad’s Western Regional Sales Manager.
Triad Speakers, Inc. President Larry Pexton says, “It gives me great personal satisfaction to congratulate Mike Budd on his elevation to National Sales Manager of Triad Speakers. Mike has grown steadily throughout his 13-year career with Triad, consistently and passionately advocating our dealer’s needs. He understands that we only succeed when our dealers succeed. I look forward to enjoying Mike's company at Triad for many years to come.”
Budd’s promotion necessitated several other sales management changes within Triad: Midwest Regional David Bailey’s role is now expanded to Western Regional, where he assumes Budd's previous territories as well as some others that he previously managed, and Eastern Regional Bruce Franklin assumes a large portion of the Midwest region.
