Professional Audio Design (PAD) appointed industry veteran Chris Walsh as the company’s new director of West Coast sales.

“We are very happy to have Chris join our team,” said Dave Malekpour, president of Professional Audio Design Inc. “Chris brings with him a wealth of experience, from studio engineering and managing at Warner Bros. Publishing to sales management for several large audio firms. Chris’ well-rounded background in all aspects of audio makes him the ideal choice for our West Coast sales division, and we are looking forward to expanding our business with him onboard.”

Walsh graduated from the Institute of Audio Research’s one-year program and began engineering jobs at several major-record labels, including Elektra/Asylum Records and 20th Century Records. From there, he migrated over to Warner Bros. Publishing, where he was in charge of studio operations and engineering. His sales career began with Studio Maintenance Inc., where he sold and installed large audio consoles. He was the studio manager and staff engineer for Yo-Dad Productions, general manager for The Guitar Center, overseeing several retail outlets, and he was the VP of sales and marketing for Martinsound Inc. Just prior to joining PAD, Walsh served as the sales manager for studio products for Tannoy North America and as a product manager for DPA Microphones.

“I’m thrilled to have such an exciting opportunity at a proven company such as PAD,” said Walsh. “I look forward to leveraging the experience and industry contacts I have gained over the years to help generate additional exposure for PAD on the West Coast.”
