Dave meets “the family”: Schertler’s U.S. National Sales Manager takes a trip to Mendrisio
Earlier this year, Dave Schmidt, Schertler’s National Sales Manager for the U.S., took the opportunity to combine a trip to the Frankfurt Musikmesse/Prolight+Sound with a visit to Schertler HQ in Mendrisio, Switzerland.
“As the National Sales Manager of the U.S. for Schertler, I was blessed to be able to take a two-week trip to Europe. My trip involved attending one of the biggest international trade shows in the world - the renowned Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany - as well as spending time both at the Schertler headquarters and in the gracious home of Stephan Schertler and his wife Lilliana.
What struck me most during my trip was the level of excellence the Schertler family aspires to in its craft. It was truly awakening for me to see the genuine kindness, warmth, passion, and commitment everyone has to making the absolute best quality sound equipment without excuses, compromises or shortcuts.
I got to see firsthand what Stephan Schertler and the entire team do every day—and they do it in concert, like a well-tuned symphony. Not only that, but they treat each other kindly, working as a family.
Every single person I met was meticulous about their job and seemed to care so much. They weren’t working under pressure either. Everyone simply knows what needs to be done and does it at the highest level, as if it were their own name on the product. I can’t overstate how impressed I was by these phenomenal people and this incredible organization.
Schertler is truly unlike any company I have ever worked with before. I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to meet “the family” in person - and I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of it.”
