Portland, OR — Custom loudspeaker solution manufacturer Triad Speakers, Inc., has promoted Mike Budd and Bruce Franklin.
Budd, formerly national sales manager, has been appointed to the role of
director of international sales and business development. Budd has been with
Triad for more than 15 years, having started with the company in 1992 as shipping manager, and growing into the role of sales coordinator, then western regional sales manager.
Franklin replaces Budd in the role of national sales manager. Franklin
joined Triad in 2005 as eastern regional sales manager. Prior, Franklin had

Connecticut since 1975.
Both Budd and Franklin will report directly to Triads director of sales and marketing, Paul Scarpelli. We are pleased to announce that these two talented and valued persons have been promoted into jobs for which they are very well qualified. Bruce Franklin has managed audio salespeople for over 30 years, and his consummate sales experience and tireless work ethic will make him a great national sales manager, Scarpelli said.
Mike Budd’s wealth of experience with Triad and Triad’s business partners
here and abroad make him a great choice for international sales, where he is
already well-known,” Scarpelli added. “Mike will also lead the development and facilitation of important Triad partnerships and seek other relevant business opportunities for the company. Both Mike and Bruce will help Triad to grow by applying their appropriate talents to these important areas of growth potential.”
