My name is Michael Mercer, and I'm the Director of Marketing for CEntrance (as of November, 2011)! I've spent my whole professional life in both the world of high end audio and the music business. I've been VERY fortunate in my experiences, as I've worked for great men/teachers and I get to work with two things that are as close to my heart as anything else in my life: Music and sound! I've clocked years at The Absolute Sound magazine as Harry Pearson's set-up and acquisitions manager, as well as working for Arif Mardin, the producer, at Atlantic Records. I also LOVE writing, and I currently write an audio column called Sonic Satori for both The Daily Swarm.com and Positive Feedback Online, as well as write music reviews for PFO (Positive Feedback). I wake up everyday feeling grateful for getting to, essentially, play with many toys for a living.
I am honored and excited to have joined the CEntrance team, as I feel they represent the future for the world of Hifi.
They're also a great bunch of guys and all care deeply for music and sonic integrity. This is the first time that I have come
to work for an audio company where EVERY employee is an artist (music or otherwise) and I feel that is an essential ingredient
in their success. I'm looking forward to a loud, and very bright future here!!
