Rick Hall Named International Sales Agent for Batson Guitar Company

Music industry professional set to grow Batson dealer network globally

Nashville, TN – October 30, 2017 – (GuitarPR) – Batson Guitar Company president Cory Batson has announced that Rick Hall has accepted the position of International Sales Agent. In his new capacity, Hall will be responsible for placing the new line of acoustic electric flattop guitars in retail dealers throughout the world.

Hall spent 14 years with KMC Music and Ovation, with much of that time as a brand manager responsible for many aspects of the Ovation Guitar brand with primary focus on successful global performance. His extensive experience dealing with international manufacturing facilities, wholesale and retail distribution, and key customer management with the likes of Guitar Center, Amazon, Best Buy, Costco and many others positions him well to lead Batson’s drive into the larger global arena.

“This kind of opportunity to launch such a high quality guitar brand to the international marketplace doesn’t come along very often, and I’m thrilled to introduce these new and extraordinary instruments to Canadian, European, Australian and Asian retailers throughout the world,” said Hall. “Having a dedicated dealer’s website demonstrates the commitment the Batson brand has in helping our retail partners to succeed.”

With huge margins, small minimums and free shipping, Batson is offering exceptional incentives for new international dealers who sign on.

Rick Hall is presently scheduling appointments for Winter NAMM and he can be reached via email at
