Two Old Hippies Names Pelletier GM of Bend, Oregon Facilities
Pelletier will be responsible for day-to-day operations of the facilities. He will rely on his considerable MI experience to lead the team and focus on projected future growth of the Two Old Hippies brands.
Before joining Two Old Hippies, Dave Pelletier was president of North America sales for Gibson Guitar Corp, where he oversaw sales of all Gibson brands, including Gibson, Epiphone, and recently acquired Stanton pro audio brands. Prior to that, he worked at Musician’s Friend for 14 years in positions as diverse as retail management, supply management, product management, and most recently, director of merchandising.
The addition of Dave Pelletier will compliment another major event that is currently in process with the Central Oregon guitar manufacturer. Two Old Hippies is relocating their US factory to a new facility in Bend, Oregon. The increased space and improved work flow of the new facility will be essential in continuing to maximize production of US made guitars.
