The Lauten Audio family has announced the hiring of Trent Thompson in the role of president of sales and marketing.
Thompson (pictured above on right) comes to Lauten Audio directly from Moog Music, where he spent the last eight years leading product marketing and product management for more than 40 product launches, including for the Sub 37, Mother-32, Matriarch, and Moog One.
"Trent and I met in 2007 when he was a sales engineer at Sweetwater Sound. Trent truly believed in what we were doing and played an important role in Lauten's early success with our microphones. Nearly 12 years later, we are pleased to welcome Trent to the Lauten Audio family and excited about what the future holds," says Brian Loudenslager (pictured above on left), Lauten Audio's founder.
Thompson's new role will include overseeing global sales and marketing for the Lauten Audio brand, as well as managing strategic partnerships, brand activations, artist relations, and sponsored activities.
Prior to his time at Moog Music and Sweetwater, Thompson spent eight years as a recording engineer, producer, and private studio owner in central Florida. He is also a graduate of Full Sail's Recording Arts program.
