|Tandem Sales &
Marketing was founded in early 2002 by MI and Pro Audio industry
veteran, Jim Giordano with years of musical instrument, professional
audio and senior corporate management experience.
Jim began his early career
working for a small 'mom and pop' full line music store in Southern
California and within a few months, was promoted to general manager.
Under his management, the business realized significant growth and
double-digit year to year sales increases. So much so, that the
property next door was acquired, doubling the existing square
footage to 10,000 square feet. Prior to leaving to pursue a new
opportunity, the business had grown into a very successful
multi-million dollar operation.
Shortly after Jim left retail, he started GSM an independent sales agency, representing
IMC (International Music Corporation) for such lines as AKAI
Pro, Studiomaster, Tokai Guitars, Ross Systems, Fane Speakers and others for the
states of California, Nevada and Arizona. A few years later, in a
move to establish their own distribution in the U.S. market,
Studiomaster U.K. retained Jim as Vice President of Sales where he
played a significant role in Studiomasters' successful U.S.
operation start-up and subsequent incorporation. Jim was eventually
promoted to President - CEO of the U.S. corporation and held that
position until he left the company in late 2001. During his tenure
with Studiomaster, Jim directly managed 16 + independent rep firms and
personally directed all of the sales, PR, advertising and marketing
activities for the company.
With real world 'hands on' experience and a well rounded
business acumen, Tandem Sales & Marketing strives to afford all of
our dealers, clients and vendors alike, a 'win-win' solutions based approach

pride in the product lines that we represent. We choose to represent

edge' technologically and afford the very best value, quality,
performance and reliability in the marketplace.
