Yamaha Corporation of America (YCA) has announced that Dave Clark has been appointed Great Lakes district manager for the company’s Band & Orchestral division, overseeing sales in parts of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Clark reports to David Suter, regional sales manager, Band & Orchestral division at the company.

“Yamaha is always on a quest to find, recruit and hire the best talent available to best serve the needs of our dealers,” said Doug Steinmetz, national sales manager for the division. “Dave Clark certainly exemplifies this, as evidenced by his experience, success and solid reputation in the industry.”

Clark is based in Ohio, and has assumed the territory previously managed by longtime Yamaha district manager Chris Jelenic, who retired last year.

“I intend to reinforce the core values and integrity that Chris established over a 35-year career with Yamaha in the territory,” said Clark.

Prior to joining Yamaha, Clark served as district manager for KHS America, providing sales, service and training on all KHS combo division products for nearly six years.

Before that, he was an education sales representative for Rettig Music and a Dynasty product manager for DEG Music Products.

Clark attended Hondros College in Columbus, Ohio, and has extensive teaching experience in drum & bugle corps activities, including being a battery percussion arranger for various marching bands and indoor lines.
