Youth Month – Celebrating ApexPro’s Next Generation

Keith Karimi  |  ApexPro Sales

Keith became interested in the industry through music production & studio equipment while in high school.  He began with an internship in Marshall Music Woodmead while in Grade 10, handling brands like KRK, Arturia, Kaotica, and other studio orientated products.  He also produced while in school for local artistes like, Boyz N Bucks, Stilo Magolide, Maraza, The Big Hash & Shane Eagle to name a few.

In 2017 Keith joined ApexPro initially handling internal sales and supporting the Retail Sales Executive Neill Venter but has grown a client base of his own, focusing on studios and houses of worship sectors.

His favourite piece of kit is the DPA 6066. Packed in a 3mm capsule it has an IP54 rating, chic design, comfortable head-worn mounting design, it is a phenomenal headset delivering clear and consistent audio.  

After hours you will often find Keith in a recording studio.

Faye Mc Quire   |   ApexPro Sales

Having studied at Northlink College in Cape Town, Faye completed a two-year Legal Secretarial Diploma, after which she joined an insurance brokerage as an administrator. Eight years ago, she realised it was time for a change and sent her CV to an agency which brought her to an interview with Prosound. Justin Acres interviewed her and gave her the position of administrator for the Cape Town branch. Faye’s scope of works extended past administration and she made a natural move into a Sales position three years ago, upon the launch of ApexPro. Faye comments that, “You are always learning something new at Apex, it is simulating and get you out to see clients and not stuck behind a desk.” She says of the company directors, “They are always available to teach and advise and are very hands on.” She feels there are always opportunities for growth and development within the company. When it comes to representing the brands, her current favourite product is the Electro Voice Evolve 50.

“Who doesn’t like the elegance, easy to setup, fantastic sound and yet so affordable. Plus, less is more – right?”

Mathew Lewis | ETC Product Manager

Mathew joined ApexPro in February 2016. Before that he had spent most of his time out of the country on various international theatre tours, including Chicago, Sound of Music and Dirty Dancing, serving as Head of Lighting. It was there that he came into contact with the ETC Eos family of consoles for the first time and a love affair was born.

Having come off the road, Mathew now dedicates his time to spreading the good word about the excellent products on offer from ETC. In particular their ColorSource range of LED fixtures have proven very popular.

There is also the new and exciting development following ETC’s acquisition of High End Systems which means that Hog4 consoles and the excellent new SolaFrame series of moving lights are being represented through ApexPro as well. Mathew is currently enjoying seeing what these new products can do.
