Meyer Sound strengthens its worldwide sales team with three new hires: Andy
Willcox as Sales Manager, Residential Systems; Daniel Rivera as Sales Specialist,
House of Worship Market; and Antonio Manzo as Sales Director, Mexico. The new
hires will help Meyer Sound to build on vertical markets worldwide.
Andy Willcox will connect Meyer Sound products and technologies to a growing
market for private cinemas and premium distributed systems in residences for
high-net-worth clients. Willcox comes to Meyer Sound with three decades of
experience in the residential AV market, both as an owner of a Midwestern systems
integration firm and as Vice President of Sales and Business Development at
CINEAK, a leading supplier of furnishings for private cinemas. He served on the
Board of Directors and Executive Board of CEDIA, serving as President of the
organization from 2005 to 2006.
Los Angeles native Daniel Rivera will leverage his experience in media production
leadership and marketing roles at Oasis Church in Hollywood, as well as two years
working in pro AV distribution. Rivera brings to his new role a first-hand
understanding of the demands of the worship environment, and will work with end
users, consultants, and system integrators to tailor Meyer Sound technologies for
worship facilities’ particular audio requirements.
“Creating these two vertical market positions reflects Meyer Sound’s long-standing
commitment to understanding customers’ needs from their perspective,’ says
Antonio Zacarias, Meyer Sound’s vice president of worldwide sales. “Andy and
Daniel know what’s truly important to customers in their respective markets, and
that’s the key to building lasting relationships.’
Heading the sales team in Mexico, Antonio Manzo brings to Meyer Sound more than
25 years of experience in the music and pro audio industries. For nearly 22 years
he worked at Yamaha Corporation of Mexico, taking on new market development in
the company’s sales and marketing department.
