Crown International in Elkhart, Ind. announces that Phil Celia (pictured) has recently joined the company to serve as eastern regional sales manager. Celia reports to Deb Frantom, Crown’s director of U.S. sales, who made the announcement.

A familiar face to the professional audio industry, Celia is best known for his 14-year tenure with Fostex America, where he spent the past five years as general manager. Prior to Fostex, Celia had worked in pro audio sales and as a recording engineer.

“We are absolutely elated to have Phil as part of our organization,” says Frantom. “As a 30-year veteran of the pro audio and music industries, he has an excellent background in sales, marketing, manufacturing, international business and general management. Plus, as an engineer and musician, he truly understands things from the end user’s perspective as well. Again, we’re thankful to have him here at Crown and eagerly look forward to his leadership in our eastern region.”

Operating out of a satellite office in Hanover, N.H., Celia oversees Crown’s independent representative network handling the manufacturer’s eastern territory, stretching from Maine to Florida. Aside from working with reps and the dealers in their respective territories, he is also being called upon to provide personal support for consultants, contractors and end users.

“Crown has such an outstanding heritage,” notes Celia, “and I’m pleased to be considered an asset to the company. I do agree that my years of experience in this business have well prepared me for this new role, and I am excited about the opportunity to help grow Crown’s relationships with its reps, dealers and customers.”

Phil Celia may be contacted directly via e-mail at or 603/643-4992.
