The Training Team

Lary McGough

Larry McGough, National Training Manager

Larry started in consumer electronics industry in 1997 like most of us do, in sales. He immediately took to the opportunity of selling audio and video products which came from his love of movies and music growing up. Over the years his skill set evolved as he went from sales, to leadership, to brand representative, to training, and now National Training Manager of a Worldwide Brand. He has a passion for movies and audio experiences, which he enjoys sharing with everyone he can through training. For those rare times he’s not on the road, he loves to just be home with his wife, three boys, and five dogs. You’ll find them gaming, watching movies, and firing up the smoker for regular weekend barbeques.

Doug Dickey

Doug Dickey, Southeast Region Sales Training Manager

Doug began his career in the consumer electronics world in the mid 1980's and never looked back. What had started as a hobby tinkering with audio components in his teen age years evolved to the sales of complete audio/video systems in a small Midwest college town. As time progressed so did his responsibilities, from sales to finance, store management, general management of multiple stores, manufacturer's representative, and now Training Manager of an International Brand. With an enthusiastic drive for all things audio and video, training people is a natural extension for him. If not on the road or in front of a group of people, you'll find him at home still tinkering on anything that has an engine or a power cord. And possibly enjoying a craft beverage while doing so.
