Three New Sales Engineers Join Sweetwater Sales Team
(Fort Wayne, Indiana) Sweetwater, one of the nation's leading retailers of professional music technology equipment, welcomes Alexander Arnold, David Mikautadze, and Phil Castillo to the company's award-winning team of sales professionals. The new Sales Engineers join Sweetwater with a varied background in professional music and audio.

Alexander Arnold is an accomplished musician and recordist with seven years of experience behind him. He holds a degree from SAE Institute recording arts school in Nashville, TN.

David Mikautadze describes himself as an avid music technology enthusiast. He comes to Sweetwater with a degree in Film Scoring and Composition from Berklee, and has served as a consultant for studio builders and as a music teacher.

Phil Castillo holds a Bachelor's of Music Composition and a Master of Music Theory and Composition from Texas Tech University, where he was also a teacher for two years. He founded SFZ Studios, which provides film music for independent films and web services for Hollywood film composers.

The new Sales Engineers site Sweetwater's emphasis on a highly knowledgeable staff as a main reason for wanting to work at the company. Unlike most retailers, Sweetwater allows its Sales Engineers to use the breadth of their pro audio expertise. "I love being on the cutting-edge of music technology and helping others with their music and audio," says Alexander Arnold. Phil Castillo adds: "Sweetwater is a dream job for me. I get to use my love of music technology everyday."

Sweetwater's award-winning staff of knowledgeable and professional Sales Engineers has received praise from all over the industry. All have a solid background in music and pro audio, and receive extensive training at Sweetwater.
