ATLANTA, GA (05.29.2020) – RPM was a one-man show just four years ago when Scott Hochmuth took his three decades of Car Audio experience and two decades of Powersports experience and started his own rep company in the Southeast. Early on the opportunities were mainly coming from the Powersports side of the business, but with the rapid expansion of Powersports audio, RPM was in a perfect position to attract lines like MTX Powersports and Wetsounds.
The new lines allowed RPM to add a 30-year Car Audio veteran, SPL competitor, and former shop owner, Mike Hall to the team covering the Carolinas. In the middle of last year RPM added Jay McLaurin to bolster the Powersports side. bringing with him 10 plus years of dealership parts manager experience. Jay works in the Gulf Coast area for RPM.
January of this year saw RPM doubling with the addition of three more reps. Russ Harper with 30 years of Powersports Rep experience has taken over the western part of their area. Jason Upchurch who was a dealership owner and GM for 25 plus years is specializing in Powersports and Marine in the Eastern Carolinas, and Chris Corry who owned businesses in both the Powersports and Marine industries is working in the South Florida area.
Unlike many rep companies that have an experienced owner and a younger and less experienced sales team, RPM has over 130 years of combined experience in the Car Audio, Powersports, Powersports Audio, and Marine industries that they serve. According to owner Scott Hochmuth “We have an amazing team culture and we keep a group text open all day sharing our challenges and successes, plus we have such an experienced group someone on the team knows the answer to just about any question that comes up.”
With smaller territories, and being able to focus more time and attention on their dealers, RPM has experienced explosive growth and is on pace for a 50% increase for 2020.
Real Performance Marketing represents Wet Sounds, MTX, ARC Audio, Audiofrog, Audio Legion, Aunex and MMats on the audio side and premium lines like Klim, 509, Shark, Quin, Race Sport and more on the Powersports side.
