Biamp Systems' Growth Expands Product Management and Global Sales Teams

Joshua Beltran moves to product management; Michael Hooper appointed North Texas area manager

BEAVERTON, Oregon -- July 5, 2016 -- Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative, networked media systems, today announced the appointment of Michael Hooper as area manager for North Texas, a position previously held by Joshua Beltran. Beltran has accepted a new position as software product manager and will be based at Biamp(R) headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, reporting to Shell Haffner, director of product management. He will focus on developing and managing the company's family of control software. Hooper will be based in Dallas, reporting to Mark Wentz, South Central regional sales manager, and will work to develop and expand Biamp's sales opportunities and channel relationships throughout the North Texas region.

Hooper joins Biamp from Mizzen Marketing -- an independent professional AV manufacturers' representative firm serving Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Arkansas -- where he served as regional manager in charge of building and maintaining relationships with key regional clients. Prior, Hooper was a technical supervisor for audio, video, and production communications for the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts (now known as the AT&T Performing Arts Center), and he was also the director of operations for three Texas-based professional symphony orchestras.

In his previous role as Biamp's North Texas area manager, Beltran oversaw all sales efforts and installations in the North Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas territories. Prior to joining Biamp in 2013, he was an AV designer for Wrightson, Johnson, Haddon & Williams, Inc. in Dallas, where he grew sales for existing and prospective clients and designed AV systems, sound reinforcement systems, and digital media systems. Beltran also previously served as field operations manager and senior project manager for Covenant Communications Corporation in Houston, managing all design-build technical sales.

"Since joining Biamp, Joshua has been an outstanding contributor to our global sales team, and we're pleased to have him apply his management expertise for our critical control software product family," said Chris Chandler, sales development director for the Southern NA region. "Joshua leaves big shoes to fill, but Michael brings a terrific background in AV sales and product management to our organization, as well as extensive knowledge of the North Texas territory."
