Petaluma, Calif. (April 12, 2018)—San Francisco Bay Area-based ed tech leader FrontRow has hired Don Metzger as Regional Sales Manager for its South-Central region, comprised of Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
“Classroom audio is the centerpiece of our ed tech offering and Don has over a decade’s experience in this specific sector,“ says FrontRow CEO Jens Holstebro. “He has a deep understanding of how classroom sound transforms learning environments and improves the teaching and learning experience for all.”
Metzger’s ed tech background includes work as account executive at Istation and over a decade at Lightspeed Technologies, first as a Classroom Audio Consultant and later as a Regional Sales Manager for the organization.
“My guiding principle is that if we keep our focus on what's is in the children's best interest, the rest will take care of itself," shares Metzger. “Having said that, my goal is to banish teachers’ idea that straining their voices is a required aspect of their workday; it only leads to fatigued vocal cords and only some of the students hearing what is being shared. I want to bring the right solutions so ‘my voice is loud enough’ can be stricken from the vernacular of educators.”
Metzger has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Belmont University.
