Before joining Meridian in December of 2007, Ryan represented Meridian and other brands as a manufacturer’s rep for Geartner Associates. Several years of retail at The Audio Store and Cambridge Soundworks prepared Ryan for his current role as Eastern Regional Sales Manager. During his three years with Meridian, Ryan had made significant impact on his territory. His enthusiasm, energy and passion are felt by everyone he works with. His fresh perspective on the market and his approach to sales, marketing and product management clearly represent a new generation. “Ryan is certainly deserving of the Young Turks of CE recognition, he is making his mark early in his career and will only continue to improve with time,” said Meridian’s Peter Wellikoff.
