Greensboro, NC – February 2010… WorxAudio Technologies, a leading manufacturer of loudspeaker systems for the pro touring and install markets, is pleased to announce it has appointed Mike Hartis to the newly created position of National Sales Manager. A veteran of the touring sound business, music club co-owner, and a manager for a major equipment rental firm, Hartis’ background and experience make him uniquely qualified to assume his new responsibilities with WorxAudio Technologies. He will be stationed in Concord, NC.

Hartis possesses a skill set that is expected to serve WorxAudio Technologies well. Most recently, and for nearly eleven years, he owned and operated a successful regional live sound reinforcement services business headquartered in Concord, NC. Prior to this, he was majority owner of Mike and Steve’s Place, a restaurant/club in Concord, NC that had a solid reputation throughout the area as a music performance venue. In addition to music and sound, Hartis’ sales background is equally thorough. He spent nine years with nationally recognized equipment rental powerhouse United Rentals, where he started as Branch Manager/ Area Manager, overseeing four of the company’s branch offices before being promoted to District Operations Manager. As District Operations Manager, Hartis was responsible for fourteen United Rentals branch offices with a total gross annual revenue exceeding $35 million dollars. Mike ended his career with United Rentals as National Sales Manager for large industrial accounts focusing on gas and nuclear power generating facilities.

Hartis commented on his new position with WorxAudio Technologies. “With a highly respected and comprehensive product line, WorxAudio Technologies represents a terrific opportunity for me to take an active sales role with a well-known loudspeaker manufacturer,? said Hartis. “I’ve always had a passion for audio and this new position enables me to become further involved with a business that is near and dear to my heart while enabling me to flex my skills as a sales professional. It’s the perfect combination and I’m really looking forward to digging in.?

“I’m very pleased to have Mike joining our effort,? says Hugh Sarvis, WorxAudio Technologies’ CEO and Director of Engineering. “Mike’s combination of pro audio application background and sales skills makes him a terrific choice for National Sales Manager. He understands what the live and installed sound professional looks for, and this is critically important when it comes to directing a prospective customer to the most appropriate products. I’m confident he’ll do well and produce the results we’re looking for.?

Hartis’ new position with WorxAudio Technologies commenced in December 2009.
