Guitar Center names new president

Guitar Center has unveiled Ron Japinga as its new president.

Japinga joined the company in 2014 as executive vice president for supply chain and private brands. However, he has been in the industry for over three decades and will bring with him a wealth of knowledge and experience.

In his new position, he will oversee and manage all aspects of Guitar Center’s business and work closely with GC’s executive team to ensure Guitar Center’s long-term growth while better serving its customers’ needs and leveraging the depth of talent and resources that exist throughout the GC organisation.

“Ron has done an exceptional job since joining our company in July of 2014,” said Guitar Center CEO, Darrell Webb. “With 32 years of successful retail management and leadership experience at a variety of companies, Ron has accumulated a vast knowledge of retailing. He has proactively shared this expertise throughout our company, well beyond his official areas of responsibility, to positively influence Guitar Center’s performance. He is a man of tremendous integrity and work ethic, with strong values and a deep commitment to Guitar Center. We all look forward to working with Ron in this new position.”
