After 9 ½ years Damon McMahon who has headed the Casio Electronic Musical Instruments division since 2011 has resigned and is going to Madison AV in the pro audio sector.
“I’m joining the Pro A/V industry in a senior sales role involved with all things digital audio & video related. Whilst I’m looking forward to this fresh challenge, it has truly been a difficult decision”. Damon said.
“The music products industry is, for most members, a way of life. It’s anything but just “a job” or “just a business”. I leave a great business and an iconic brand which, in many ways, leads the categories in which it competes. But much more difficult is leaving wonderful colleagues and customers, many of whom have become life-long friends”.
“I think it fair to say we share a common passion in making music, which makes such a positive difference in people’s lives. This alone makes it pretty difficult for most of us to contemplate “should I do something else?”.
Damon’s departure will provide a senior sales role opportunity open up. Shriro’s General Manager Piers Halleen, advised that the role will be based in Sydney, and will be responsible for managing one of Casio EMI’s leading sales territories. The successful applicant will have a strong background in piano and keyboard categories and demonstrate a clear understanding of the sales process.
If you have the skills and desire, drop Piers a note @ firstname.lastname@example.org
The Association wishes Damon all the best and extends its thanks and appreciation of his service on the executive committee in recent years.
