Sweetwater Names New Exec
Fort Wayne-based Sweetwater Sound Inc. has selected a company veteran to fill a newly-created executive position. David Stewart, who previously served as vice president of sales, has been appointed executive vice president and chief marketing officer.
Stewart joined Sweetwater in 1992 as a sales engineer. Sweetwater President Chuck Surack said the "exceptional growth" of the company and plans for continued growth led him to add the position being filled by Stewart.
"This new position reflects the vital importance of our marketing department to our growth and success," said Surack. "David Stewart, who will report directly to me, along with Chief Operating Officer John Hopkins, and Chief Sales Officer Jeff Radke, has impacted the company in so many ways it would be impossible to name them all. Simply put, he knows Sweetwater through and through and I am very honored that he has agreed to take on this tremendous responsibility."
Stewart also served as creative marketing director for Sweetwater before returning to the sales department. The company says Stewart remained a constant advisor and contributor to its marketing strategies.
