Meyer Sound has announced the appointment of Michael Bogden to the position of Sales Manager, Midwest. Effective immediately, Michael assumes responsibility for sales and client relations in ten states of the upper Midwest and Great Lakes region. Based in Minneapolis, he will report directly to Meyer Sound Executive Vice President Helen Meyer.
Michael comes to his new position with a broad base of industry experience, enabling him to understand problems from a client’s viewpoint, working collaboratively to develop innovative solutions. In his prior position in sales and client services at Visual Horizon Communications, a Minneapolis event technology provider, he was responsible for client development as well as sound designing and overall onsite management of the sound department. His past experience also includes posts as an audio engineer for the Metropolitan Opera, sound design credits for numerous corporate events as well as acquiring associate design credits for Broadway productions of Godspell and Company. On top of this, Michael has a decade of experience as a production sound engineer for New York productions such as Hairspray and Jersey Boys.
“We are thrilled to have Michael joining the Meyer Sound team,” says Helen Meyer. “He has a proven track record in business development and expansion, and as a veteran sound designer and production engineer he has an insider’s knowledge of exactly what our customers need.”
In accepting his position, Michael noted that he was swayed in part by the fact that Meyer Sound remains a family company directed by its founders. “The atmosphere and energy they create is very personal,” he remarks. “I also like that they are driven by science to advance the art of sound. Their array of solutions is by far the best in the industry, and no other company offers such a high level of after-sale support.”
