Coupled with its growing prominence in the recording product category, which includes the popular BR-Digital Recording product line, BOSS has earned unmatched respect and trust among dealers and end users alike.

The recent changing of the guard includes the following appointments:
Paul Youngblood - Vice President / BOSS U.S.
Paul Youngblood has been promoted to the role of Vice President of BOSS U.S.
Houlihan says, "In his new position, Youngblood will be the driving force behind all BOSS-related activities, including sales, marketing, promotion, telemarketing, and advertising for the newly created company. A 20-year veteran of Roland Corporation U.S., Youngblood has worked in a number of capacities within the Roland MI Division throughout his career, most recently as Director of Sales. He brings the new company a unique combination of passion and talent that includes countless sales management achievements, 20 years of real-world experience within the company, and a body of BOSS knowledge that is second to none."
