By PSW Staff • March 16, 2011 New Danley Sound Labs national sales manager Paul Giansante Danley Sound Labs has appointed industry veteran Paul Giansante to the position of national sales manager to propel the company to the next phase of its development and beyond. With a long history in just about every relevant audio role conceivable – from concert manager, to AV integrator, to general manager for leading loudspeaker manufacturers – Giansante brings a wealth of knowledge and connections to his new role at Danley Sound Labs. Giansante has worked as a freelance audio systems engineer in the Midwest, providing engineering, design, installation, and operating services to houses of worship, theaters, and performing arts centers. He also served as concert touring manager with Meyer Sound Laboratories, where he increased the number of acts touring with the company’s gear. As Turbosound’s product and general manager, he engaged in product development, all aspects of marketing and sales, and customer service and support. A diversity of other experiences bolster Giansante’s qualifications: senior applications engineer for several loudspeaker distributors; chief audio system engineer at DisneyFest Asia; manager/engineer at Signal Perfection Limited; freelance touring/design engineer in Europe; and project manager at Maryland Sound Industries. A tiny sample of the A-list acts he has worked with includes Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Dire Straits, Neil Young, and Whitney Houston. He can claim a comparable list of installations, including Pensacola Christian College Main Sanctuary; Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wisconsin; Fremont St. Experience, Las Vegas; and Pleasure Island, Disney World in Orlando. “Danley is poised to gain significant market growth in the coming years,” states Mike Hedden, president of Danley Sound Labs. “Without a doubt, Paul Giansante has the experience and the talent to take us to the top of the heap. He knows the loudspeaker market inside and out – from the manufacturer’s perspective, from the design engineer’s perspective, and from the application engineer’s perspective. What we see in Paul is the technical ability and the leadership skills to convey the creativity and practicality of Tom Danley’s innovative loudspeaker, subwoofer and amplifier designs to both the live and fixed-installation markets.” “Tom Danley is an acoustic genius,” says Giansante. “By reconsidering the acoustical principles by which a loudspeaker or sub produces sound, his designs deliver untouchable performance at a realistic cost ratio. The basics for this company are in place: great product, right pricing, superb availability and an exceptionally talented staff. I plan to coordinate an accelerated and comprehensive sales management program that includes developing training and sales seminars to strengthen Danley brand awareness and grow sales.” Danley Sound Labs Website Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
