Tightrope Media Systems announced today that Eric Henry and Jim Morical, from the audio visual manufacturers representation firm Kodo James, have joined Tightrope Media Systems as CEO and Chief Business Development Officer (CBDO), respectively.
Prior to partnering with Morical at Kodo James, Henry spent six years at American Express, where he gained experience in a professional environment with exposure to the decision makers of a top Fortune 500 company. His experience representing Tightrope Media Systems to dealers and end-users provides valuable insight that will help Tightrope during this period of active growth and will also provide Tightrope with hands-on leadership as they build the company going forward. Henry graduated with a degree in business, accounting and finance from Bethel University in St. Paul, Minn.
Morical was the vice president and director of education sales at an AV-integration company for more than 14 years before starting Kodo James, representing 20 manufacturers for the past six years. At Kodo James, Jim was personally involved in the sale and deployment of hundreds of digital signage systems using Tightrope Media Systems products. As CBDO, Morical will focus on developing partnerships, vertical markets and growth internationally. Jim Morical attended the University of Minnesota, where he earned his degree in speech communications with an emphasis in broadcasting.
