Overland Park, Kan. – January 25, 2018 – MSE Audio, parent company of Phase Technology, Induction Dynamics. SoundTube Entertainment, SolidDrive, Rockustics and Soundsphere, announces the promotion of Jonathan Duran to Director of Residential Sales and Marketing. As one of his first acts in his new role, Duran selects Marketing Matters, an award-winning communications agency, as agency of record.
Duran’s promotion to Director of Residential Sales and Marketing comes after 10 years of service to the leading audio brand, MSE Audio. As the parent company of residential brands Rockustics, Phase Technology and Induction Dynamics, Jonathan will invest much of his time into growing and strengthening these product lines. Duran started his intriguing professional journey at then powerhouse book retailer Borders. After nearly ten years as their operations manager, Duran forged a new career path in creative innovation. In 2009, he assumed the position of garage co-developer and managing editor for MUBI, a webby-winning and industry-leading film culture website, creating their VOD platform. This led Duran to co-found Subvex, an international film production house and VOD platform (9M3).
“I’m excited to invest further into MSE Audio as we continue to grow our award-winning and industry-recognized audio lines,” said Duran. “MSE Audio is recognized for excellence in quality, design and sales and we look to continue that moving forward. In addition, I looking forward to the addition of Marketing Matters as our go-to for public relations needs and building a relationship with Coleen and her team.”
In 2007, Duran parlayed his unique background to join MSE, quickly distinguishing himself as a visionary yet business-savvy member of the company’s dynamic entrepreneurial team. One of Duran’s top priorities was to communicate MSE’s excellence in sound, brand values and innovations to consumers. Marketing Matters was an obvious choice. The company has more than twenty years of experience in high-technology and leading-edge consumer electronics with a multi-talented professional team.
“We are thrilled for Jonathan’s promotion and honored he chose us to help grow his division,” said Coleen Sterns Leith, President of Marketing Matters. “MSE Audio epitomizes the passionate, pioneering technical excellence that really characterizes our clientele.
