John Carpanini worked side by side with Robert Wilson at Sound Technology for just over 18 years. Perhaps considered a baptism of fire? The job was John’s introduction to the industry and one that grew with love and passion for music. John is a talented guitar player and has studied music for many years. His second position was at Soundcraft where he helped grow the product line as well as the company’s dealer base, especially to export markets. He was later hired by Dr Sidney Harman to serve as Vice President of Sales, working closely with Mark Terry, before moving on to work as President of JBL Pro.
