Carole Johnston is the Managing Director of CMC Music, a wholesale company she formed with her father, Pat Bonham. Pat was a pioneer in the music industry and a founding member of the Australian Music Association in 1977. When Carole and her dad formed CMC in 1991, they set out to focus on quality products rather than expanding into several brands without serving them well to their customers. As a result, she continues the strong family-like relationships with Ernie Ball that her father forged years ago. Her goal is to provide the best service with the best products possible. Her dad would be proud!
