Group One Ltd., a diversified distributor of professional audio and lighting equipment, announces the appointment of Ryan Shelton as Sales and Support Associate.

Based in Nashville, Ryan will provide national sales support for Group One’s rep force, dealers and end-users, as well as handling product demos and educational classes for DiGiCo, XTA and MC2.

Ryan graduated summa cum laude from the University of Memphis in 2006 with a Bachelor of Music in Recording Technology.  He served as audio engineer for the University’s touring ensemble Sound Fusion.  In addition to engineering, he interned for an AV Design/Build firm in Memphis, TN.  

After graduation, he was hired by Quest Marketing as their regional sales representative based out of Nashville, TN, working with myriad manufacturers in the Pro Audio market including DiGiCo, EAW, Martin Audio, RCF, Optocore, Powersoft, Lake and many others. Ryan received his SMAART certification in 2009.
“The DiGiCo product line covers the smallest to largest budgets in all markets segments,” notes DiGiCo’s National Sales Manager Matt Larson, “from touring, theatre, corporate productions to Houses of Worship.  We know it is critical to our success to have competent staff that understands show-time and the depth of a digital mixing console.”  Larson adds, “Having worked with Ryan in his previous role as a rep we knew he would fit in with our core values and would be an asset to our customers, not just a salesman.”
