Zach Frederick has been around music his entire life. His brother, Alex, is a professional classical percussionist and Zach was playing his first instrument in the fourth grade. What he discovered while attending college at UCLA is that he has a real interest in business, especially international business. His first job in the music industry took place when he was hired by Ernie Ball in 1998. He worked his way up the ranks and for four years was the Export Manager. Zach realized this was the perfect combination of both of his passions. In 2002, he established his own export management firm and gathered a few top brands he was able to serve in international markets.
