Sarah Hagan

The Percussion Marketing Council (PMC) Executive Committee has appointed Sarah Hagan to its Advisory Board. A drummer and former teacher, Hagan joined Zildjian as a marketing and events coordinator and was promoted to Artist Relations Manager for the East Coast before becoming Director of Artist Relations–worldwide in 2014. Hagan has been an active member of music industry for more than 10 years and has worked closely with R&D and marketing.

Hagan is located in Zildjian’s Norwell MA headquarters and actively participates in many educational and promotional activities for the company’s global strategy and product development. PMC Co-Executive Director Karl Dustman commented, “We are most fortunate to have Sarah join the advisory board in the marketing-promotions leadership position, previously held by Billy Cuthrell of Progressive Music Center, who stepped down due to time restraints. Sarah will be overseeing our updated Web site content and concentrating on further growth of the Percussion In The Schools program through her access to many qualified program facilitators, nationwide.”

The Executive Committee consists of Brad Smith (Hal Leonard), Dave Jewell (Yamaha Corporation), Karl Dustman (Dustman & Associates), Stacey Montgomery-Clark (Sabian). Sarah Hagan now serves on the advisory board along with the three other board members. The eight-member PMC board combines people and company affiliations with diverse talents and resources to grow the organization for the future.
