Lectrosonics, the premiere manufacturer of wireless microphone systems and audio processing products for the film, broadcast, theatre, music, and installed sound markets, is pleased to announce the appointments of two new U.S. regional representatives, Blair Johnson in the Northeast and Nicholas Mariano in the Southeast.
Blair Johnson will serve customers and develop new business in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC. Nicholas Mariano will do so in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, the Carolinas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. Both began working full time in their new roles with Lectrosonics in December 2019.
Blair Johnson comes to Lectrosonics from a background in filmmaking and film/video production management. His credits include live-streamed performances from the Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as editing, sound mixing, and producing in a wide variety of environments from artistic to corporate and commercial. Most notably, he is a lifetime Lectrosonics user himself. “There is one brand of wireless gear that I know inside and out: Lectrosonics,” he commented. “As I write this my first professional purchase is sitting in front of me: two Lectro UCR-210D receivers. Although they don’t get used much anymore, I have no intention of letting them go. That in itself is testimony to the brand’s quality and I am thrilled to be a part of Lectrosonics’ momentum and continued success.”
Nicholas Mariano has worked in Lectrosonics’ Technical Customer Service department since September 2017. His extensive background in audio mixing, support, and repair includes time at the legendary Village Recorder in Los Angeles and a stint as special effects consultant for AMC’s hit TV series Breaking Bad. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Music Production and Engineering from Boston’s renowned Berklee College of Music.
“With Blair and Nicholas joining our sales team, we get the chance to promote a great team member from within as well as work with a new talent, both of whom are already passionate about our products and company values,” said Karl Winkler, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Lectrosonics. “We look forward to having them join us at Lectrosonics.”
