Korg USA has hired Taylor McLam, a new inside sales rep (ISR) to join the team’s growing sales division.

McLam, a multi-instrumentalist and composer has created music for more than 300 companies including: Verizon, Chrysler, and Sears. McLam also brings an entrepreneurial spirit to the company as he has managed Music Beast, his own production company for the last seven years.

“With many years as an accomplished drummer, and a successful career in creating and selling music for advertising, Taylor has a unique set of skills that we are very excited to add to our team,” says inside sales and key account manager, Matt Phillips. “Taylor’s deep understanding of our products, paired with his enthusiastic entrepreneurial attitude will be a great asset in offering our dealers the first-class level of sales support that Korg USA strives for,” Phillips concludes.

McLam was a member of the band Orange 9mm and co-wrote the bonus track “Jungle in the Circus” for the 2008 Gavin Rossdale album Wanderlust

Korg USA has also hired Chad Bscherer as the new district sales and key account manager for the Ohio Valley territory, and the new sales field lead for Sweetwater. Bscherer joins the Korg USA sales team after spending five years with both Peavey and American Music and Sound where he held District Sales Manager positions at both companies. Bscherer also retains a music educator background having worked in the Education division of Cascio Interstate Music, a key independent dealer in Wisconsin. This experience led him to receive the prestigious Music Service Award from the Minneapolis Music Teacher’s Forum.

“Chad’s diverse background and ability to succeed in various aspects of the music industry really impressed us when looking for someone to take on the role,” says AJ Reitz, National Sales Manager for Korg USA. “Chad’s track record of sales success and customer service make him a welcome addition to an already strong Field Sales Team,” Reitz concludes.

Bscherer has worked as a youth pastor in the ministry and lived in Singapore for five years. He is a dedicated bassist as well as an acoustic and electric guitarist, and frequently plays in his church band.
