Yamaha Corporation of America (YCA) today announced the appointment of Brett Armstrong to the position of House of Worship resource manager. He will report directly to Roger Eaton, chief marketing director, YCA.
Armstrong serves as the point person for the company’s House of Worship initiatives across all Yamaha product divisions. In this role, he will create content that supports worship leaders and musicians while providing solution-based training and education designed to elevate the performance and enjoyment of worship services and activities.
“It’s a pleasure to have Brett on the Yamaha team to continue our support of the House of Worship community,” Eaton says. “Creating strong and authentic worship ‘community’—connecting leadership and musicians—is a very important facet to our work here at Yamaha. Brett has vast experience in professional audio and a true understanding of the needs of a worship environment to provide a one stop solution of Yamaha quality products.”
The son of a pastor and evangelist, Armstrong has maintained worship as a significant part of his entire life. “I started singing gospel at age 12, and later was the worship leader in my church where I helped design and set up their sound system,” he says. “I’ve always been extremely technical, as well as a musician, and went on to develop multi-faceted audio-visual systems for large corporations. I am looking forward to apply my expertise to build the success of the worship community.”
Most recently, Armstrong was president of Display-Works, a commercial video display company. Prior to that, he was the national sales manager for Guitar Center Professional, the nation's largest provider of pro audio, video, lighting and sound installation services. Between 2008 and 2015, he was president of Integrated Display Technology, a provider for all types of video display systems—from projection to video walls.
Armstrong, who plays guitar, bass and piano, lives in Simi Valley with his wife of 37 years. They have three children and five grandchildren.
