Oral History Information

Interview Date
Job Title
Sales Manager
Company Name
Sound Productions Inc.

Doug Kliever is a sales manager for Sound Productions, whose love of audio gear began when he built his home recording studio. The studio allowed him to make money doing side jobs, including recording many of his friend’s bands. He walked into his local Guitar Center one day to purchase some audio gear and walked away with a job that lasted seven years. It was a great experience that inspired a friend working at Sound Productions to encourage Doug to apply for a sales position. In 2011, he did! What impressed Doug most about the company was the integrity and business philosophy of the founder, Charles Kitch. Over the years Doug has watched as new products and technology create new customers and new opportunities for engineers and musicians, which is exciting for him to witness and be a part of.
