April 3, 2022

The Music People (TMP), a division of Exertis Jam, has announced the promotion of longtime employee Tom Tedesco (pictured on right) to president and CEO. Sharon Hennessey (pictured, middle) and John Hennessey (pictured, left), current co-presidents, will be appointed chairwoman and chairman. Montreal-based Exertis Jam (formerly Jam Industries) acquired TMP in 2020 and has facilitated its continued growth.

Over the years, Tedesco has worked his way up in the company, with his most recent position being VP of sales and business development. He led the TMP’s continued growth in all the markets it serves domestically and globally, the company says.

“Tom has demonstrated excellent judgment and strong leadership with a focus on our relationships. The time is right for him as well as the business to take this logical next step, and we couldn’t be more proud of him and the whole team,” says Hennessey.

“I am so excited and humbled for the opportunity to lead the TMP team. I am extremely appreciative of the friendship and mentorship I received from John and Sharon over the last 11 years that prepared me for the next step in my career. Thank you to Marty and Stuart for their confidence in me to build on our momentum into the future,” adds Tedesco.

“Promoting Tom to president and CEO is a clear sign of the caliber of the talent that John and Sharon have assembled.  Growth leads to opportunity, and we plan to see much more growth and opportunity for others at TMP in the near future,” says Stuart Frenkel, president and CEO of Exertis Jam.

TMP has two brand divisions: On-Stage, the designer, manufacturer, and supplier of over 700 musical-instrument stands and accessories; and TMP-Pro, a U.S. distributor of hundreds of pro audio, video, lighting, and accessories brands.
