This newly formed team lead by the general manager, Grant Henry, will provide closer relationships with instrument dealers and quickly be able to respond to the needs and trends within the percussion industry.
To bring the Ludwig/Musser message to the forefront of the industry, Jim Catalano, will become Director of Sales and Marketing, Concert Percussion. He will focus on school/concert percussion sales and the marketing aspects of concert percussion including mallet instruments, timpani, educational kits, marching equipment and concert drums.
In addition, two more individuals will join the team. Kevin Packard will become Director of Marketing, Combo Percussion. Kevin has a long history in the percussion industry and comes to Ludwig from Ddrum where he served as Division Manager. Brandon Sims will now be the Design Engineer, Percussion for Ludwig. Brandon majored as a mechanical engineer in school, is a product development engineer and a percussionist by passion!
In combination with the other team members, Grant Henry, General Manager, Leslie Butts, National Account Manager, and Gary Devore, Sales Coordinator, the national presence of Ludwig/Musser will be at the leading edge of this industry!
