Meyer Sound has announced new hires for three management positions, with Melissa Galicia selected as Chief Financial Officer, James Bolton is the new Director of Logistics, and Michael Heard as the Director of Procurement.
“Although these three are not in customer-facing roles, their work is critical to maintaining strong relationships with our global customer base,” commented Meyer Sound Executive Vice President Helen Meyer. “Melissa is charged with continuing the efficient and robust financial operations of the company, while James and Michael will help assure that the ‘nuts and bolts’ of our manufacturing and global distribution run smoothly so our customers receive their product on schedule.”
As Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Melissa Galicia is charged with the leadership role in all financial and accounting activities, including budgeting, financial reporting, risk management, and regulatory controls.
In his new role as Director of Logistics, James Bolton will take lead responsibility for the global and strategic use of logistics and distribution models to manage incoming freight, shipments to customers, and movement of parts.
Michael Heard will now oversee all matters regarding supply chains for manufacturing parts and materials as the new Director of Procurement. He is charged with ensuring all suppliers meet Meyer Sound’s stringent quality standards and are able to deliver materials on schedule.
“Our three new hires are new to the professional audio industry, but they certainly are not new to their fields of professional expertise,” noted Helen Meyer. “Once again we are exceptionally pleased that, in today’s highly competitive employment market, we are able to attract such talented and highly skilled people to join our team at Meyer Sound.”
