Dean Markley USA today announces the appointment of Lori McCallian as Chief Executive Officer of both Dean Markley USA and Ultrasound Amplifiers. The new role is effective immediately. McCallian will be actively involved in the various strategic, financial, and operational components of the company. Initially, she will spend additional time on branding projects, evaluating operational efficiencies, building the Dean Markley team, and getting to know the customers, artists, dealers, and distributors.
Prior to joining Dean Markley USA, her career was spent in the insurance and financial services industries. While working for industry leading companies, she gained experience in management, operations, sales, and business ownership. She has spent the last few years as a consultant helping companies that needed a “turn around” strategy and execution plan for the future. As a long-time piano player and music fan, this was a great opportunity for her to combine two of her favorite things—music and business.
