DPA Microphones has added Matt Frazier, who comes to the table with nearly 15 years of experience in product sales and support, as U.S. northwest area sales manager.
“We’re very excited to have Matt join our team here in the states,” says Christopher Spahr, VP of sales and marketing for DPA USA . “DPA has seen tremendous growth over the last several years and Matt’s longtime experience in the music and pro audio industries will help us continue to grow our brand recognition to customers in the northwest. This includes especially crucial territories such as Seattle, which has an amazing musical culture.”
A musician by training, Frazier holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music Theory from Occidental College and a Master of Music in Production and Composition from California State University, Los Angeles. His most recent sales and support experience was as Director of Sales, APAC, for Loud Technologies in Seattle, where he was responsible for managing 30 pro audio and retail distribution partnerships across 20 countries, as well as assisting with marketing, product management, sales administration and logistics for customer relations. Prior to that, Frazier held regional and senior sales positions for Avid Technology and served as a product specialist for M-Audio.
“I’m so pleased to be able to combine my background and experiences to help DPA Microphones continue to increase its presence in this region,” says Frazier. “My years of musical training and performance, as well as my passion for sound, offer me a wonderful opportunity to understand the needs of DPA’s customer-base. I look forward to becoming familiar with DPA’s current users and to further growing the company throughout the Pacific Northwest.”
