QSC Audio Products promotes Danny Pickett

Jan 10, 2014

QSC Audio Products announced the promotion of Danny Pickett to director, global cinema sales.

Pickett joined QSC Cinema in 2005 as key accounts manager, and was tasked with selecting and setting up European cinema dealers for QSC Audio Products. In 2010, he was promoted to cinema sales manager, taking on management and support for domestic and international cinema dealers.  As director of global cinema sales, he will have overall responsibility for all domestic and international sales operations and customer technical support.

“Danny has proven to be one of our strongest assets in cinema sales,” says Barry Ferrell, QSC’s senior VP and chief strategy officer. “Since he became cinema sales manager, our global cinema sales have grown significantly, and a large percentage of that increase was directly related to the market development work that Danny has done with our international dealers. Danny is now empowered to further strengthen our global sales and distribution network, and to continue to provide the level of support that our customers have come to expect from QSC Cinema.”

Pickett’s new position coincides with other staffing changes within the QSC cinema group. Ferrell explains, “As my role within QSC has shifted to corporate strategic issues, day-to-day operations of the cinema group will be managed jointly by Danny and Mark Mayfield, cinema marketing manager. While Danny will handle sales issues, Mark will manage all marketing-related operations. I have full confidence in these two seasoned professionals to successfully grow our cinema business while I focus on strategy and product development.”

Pickett’s cinema sound background includes experience in both post-production and exhibition. As a staff technician with AMC Theatres, he supervised all studio screenings in the Los Angeles area, and managed projection and sound for new theatre construction projects in Southern California. With Lucasfilm THX, he conducted THX theatre certifications and worked as an engineer for the THX Digital Mastering program. Prior to joining QSC in 2005, he was a re-recording engineer and sound dditor for 20th Century Fox Studios.
