Less than year ago we announced right on this little old news feed that our buddy Colin Schofield had taken the position of vice president of international sales for Aquarian Drumheads, following long tenures with both Zildjian, and Premier. So we were a bit surprised to learn today that Schofield has just been named business development manager for Gretsch. In this newly created role, Schofield will work out of the company’s Savannah, Georgia headquarters assisting company president Fred Gretsch in the development and execution of strategies to further build and strengthen the Gretsch brand worldwide. It sounds to us like win-win situation for everybody involved.
