Full Compass Adds Four Industry Veterans to National Sales Team

l-r: Parker Bradley, Lin Buck, Ricardo Hurtado, Daniel Bostick

After a nationwide search, Full Compass, a full-service distributor of professional audio, video, lighting, and musical instruments, announces that four leading industry professionals have joined their National Sales Team. This new group brings an average of 24 years of experience in the Pro Audio, Video, and Lighting industries from the manufacturer side of the industry and from Independent Rep firms. The new additions come positioned with extensive product knowledge and will be generating immediate contributions to Full Compass' continued growth.

Parker Bradley is a former national sales manager from beyerdynamic, having also spent time at Mackie/Loud Audio as a regional sales manager, and at Guitar Center as a district manager in the Austin, TX market. But Bradley describes his most accurate position title as Sales Leader / People Leader / Dad.

Lin Buck is a veteran of the Pro A/V industry. He was most recently the director of sales at MSE Audio. Prior to MSE, Lin was the sr. manager for Harman's Live Entertainment Sales Division. Prior to Harman, he worked at Electro-Voice/Bosch Security for several years as their regional sales manager. Buck describes his customer service philosophy as such: "Customers don't care about my revenue goals... They have their own challenges and are mostly concerned about what they need to thrive."

Ricardo Hurtado is a singer/songwriter, stand-up comedian, and works in photography and video production. Back in March of 2019, he decided to try something new outside of the industry, but has since been successfully brought back into the world of Pro A/V/L. Hurtado has experience as a manufacturer's sales rep and has recently worked at McFadden Sales representing brands such as Shure, Atlas IED, Williams, Vanguard and more. Prior to McFadden Sales, he worked at Techrep Marketing, which represents Sennheiser, Presonus, UA, Genelec, Phillips, QSC and other premier lines, with extensive experience as a liaison to the integration market.

Daniel Bostick decided to leave Nashville behind and move to Colorado in 2019. Prior to his relocation, he worked at Full Scale AV/Techrep Marketing for several years directing their Inside Sales Support Team and Distribution Operations, as well as managing their North American Field Sales Force. Prior to Techrep Marketing, Bostick was with AKG/Harman out of Nashville as a key accounts manager and at Mackie Designs in Washington as their technical sales trainer.

"As Full Compass positions itself to meet the evolving requirements of our customers in a post-COVID environment, we are pleased to welcome Parker, Lin, Ricardo, and Dan to the Full Compass family, augmenting an already talented team of professional A/V Sales Representatives," says Michelle Grabel-Komar, vice president of sales. "Their impressive backgrounds and product knowledge will add to our customers' overall experience, as the demand for innovative technologies become the new normal. With the modernization of education, live events, worship, and business workflows via online streaming, collaborative presentations, and the need for enhanced interactions both onsite and remotely, we welcome their wide-ranging expertise into the fold."
