Excellence Marketing adds Joe Kokal to the team as production specialist to focus on live sound and video production.

Kokal has an extensive background in live audio production and AV integration, including running sounds systems for musical acts at concert venues, theaters, churches and corporate events. He’s held several positions including recording engineer, audiovisual technician, lead AV operator and freelance engineer.

“I enjoy learning about new equipment and techniques that create better-sounding environments,” Says Kokal. “I also love to teach – I taught several live audio reinforcement courses at McNally Smith College of Music so I’m hoping to be a great resource for system demos, technical information, dealer and end user training.”

“We’re thrilled to have Joe join our team,” says Ken Simons, owner of Excellence Marketing. “His strong production skills have already given us a boost in the services we provide to our clients across the Upper Midwest and MidAmerica territories.”

Kokal holds several industry certifications including: Dante Level 1 2018, L’Acoustics Certificate of Training 2018, DiGiCo Masters Class Certificate 2017, Rational Acoustics Smaart V8 2016, ProTools 11 2015, Midas Digital User/System Engineer 2015, Symetrix SymNet Composer 2014. Kokal is currently working on the QSC Q-Sys Certification, Shure Audio Institute Certification, and the AVIXA CTS credential.
