Greensboro, NC – April 2023… Blaze Audio, a manufacturer of professional solutions for commercial audio applications and a subsidiary of Pascal A/S of Copenhagen, Denmark, is pleased to announce the addition of two new regional sales managers. Jill Levine will serve as the Regional Sales Manager, West while Richard Wallace assumes the position of Southeast Regional Sales Manager. Levine will be stationed from Heber City, UT (near Salt Lake City) while Wallace is based in Pensacola, FL. Both Levine and Wallace started with Blaze Audio in March 2023 and report to Kevin Wilkin, Blaze Audio’s Executive Sales Director for North America.
In their new roles with Blaze Audio, both Levine and Wallace will be responsible for building new and maintaining previously established long-term relationships with dealers, consultants, and end-users. This involves coordinating sales, account and rep firm management to ensure growth within each territory, as well as in-person product demonstration and training at tradeshows and similar events. Levine’s territory encompasses the western United States—everything from the Rocky Mountains westward. The territory under Richard Wallace’s domain includes FL, AL, GA, MS, TN, NC, and SC.
Both Levine and Wallace bring a wealth of skills and experience to their new positions with Blaze Audio. Prior to starting with Blaze Audio, Levine served as the Western Regional Sales Manager for TeachLogic of Longmont, CO, a manufacturer of wireless microphones and audio systems designed for the education market. Before TeachLogic, she spent 20 years in multiple roles with SoundTube / MSE, a manufacturer of high-fidelity and commercial audio products. Before joining the Blaze Audio team, Wallace served as Sales Manager for Pro Sound & Video of Pensacola, FL and Account Manager for ID Systems of Northwest FL. Additionally, Wallace managed National Sales for Installed Sound at Burlington, MA-based Avid Technology as well as being the Director of Sales for Sound Bridge Acoustic Labs of Dallas, TX.
Commenting on her new role with Blaze Audio, Levine offered the following thoughts, “I am very pleased to be joining the Blaze Audio team. In a very short period of time, Blaze has created an enviable presence within our industry and the company’s product line is equally impressive. I see tremendous opportunity with this company and I am eager to help elevate Blaze to the next level.” Wallace echoed Levine’s enthusiasm, “As a division of Pascal A/S, I have been well aware of the high quality and innovative product offerings this company offers. I see this as an excellent opportunity to help further the company’s growth and to be an integral part of a dynamic, evolving team with a rich assortment of cutting-edge products.”
Kevin Wilkin, Blaze Audio’s Executive Sales Director for North America, is equally upbeat about the company’s newest additions, “While innovative product offerings is certainly a crucial element for a company’s success, the ability to assemble an outgoing, seasoned, and enthusiastic sales team is an equally important quality that has a profound impact on a company’s sales efforts. In this regard, I am delighted to welcome aboard both Jill and Richard. In my mind, they have the skills, the experience, and the get-up-and-go mentality that sales success demands. I have complete confidence in their ability to make important contributions to our efforts and both the entire Blaze Audio team and I welcome them aboard.”
