Yamaha Canada Music has announced that Ryan Hamilton has been hired as its new product marketing manager for drums and Paiste products. He fills the role vacated by Sean Browne, who was promoted to the position of international drum product marketing manager for Yamaha Corporation in December 2015.
Hamilton joins Yamaha with a background in business marketing and a history of drum retail experience having worked as general manager of Just Drums in Toronto. He also spent time working at Warner Music Canada.
“I am so honoured to be joining the Yamaha team. Having dealt with them for years on the retail side, I’ve always had a strong appreciation for both the brand and the company,” Hamilton tells CMT. “I’m really excited to be tackling a new challenge and bring my knowledge to the table to help grow Yamaha drums and Paiste cymbals across the country. It’s a new era for me and one which I’m really looking forward to.”
