Korg USA, exclusive U.S. distributor for Vestax DJ/professional audio products, has named Joe Giacopelli (a.k.a. DJ Joe Jack) as Vestax Associate Product Manager. The announcement was made by Mitch Colby, Senior Vice President of Product Development.
In his new position, Giacopelli will support sales and marketing efforts for Vestax, as well as work closely with the company to develop new products and tools for DJs. He comes to Korg USA after a decade-long career as a DJ in New York's challenging and progressive music scene, performing in such popular venues as Limelight (where he was a resident DJ for eight months) and the Roxy. In addition to artistic proficiency, Giacopelli's five years of M.I. retail experience at Sam Ash and three years of experience at Music Palace Studios in New York have also enabled him to bring a thorough understanding of current audio technologies to his role at Korg USA.
