Burkhardt Screams \'Road Trip\'

SpeakerCraft President to visit 27 cities in 30 days by bus

RIVERSIDE, CA: February 2006 Jeremy Burkhardt, the colorful and outspoken leader of SpeakerCraft, is embarking on a whirlwind tour of the country. Reaching out to the dealers who have made the company such a resounding success in the custom installed audio industry, Burkhardt will literally circumnavigate the entire nation in just thirty days. This would not be so noteworthy in an age where air travel connects us to every point on the globe in a few hours but Jeremy will be making this entire excursion in a tour bus. "I will be shaking the hands of those who are responsible for making SpeakerCraft the company it is today," said Burkhardt. "Companies often lose focus on the things that really matter to their dealers when they are trapped behind office doors. I love to get out in the field and make sure we continue to make a difference in the lives and hearts of our dealers. I look forward to meeting with over 1,500 SpeakerCraft supporters"


The North American tour will stop in twenty -seven cities in primary and secondary markets. "This is just the sort of thing that sets SpeakerCraft apart from the mainstream." remarked Dave Donald, SpeakerCraft's V.P. of Marketing. "We are constantly looking for ways to do things differently. Rarely would a company president attempt something like this and we are excited to see the dealers' response."

Burkhardt will begin his travels in Tampa, Florida on March seventh and wrap up in Jacksonville on the sixth of April. He will be reporting from the road throughout the trip. Updates will be posted on the company website at: www.speakercraft.com.
