American Way Marketing LLC(AWM), a music accessory distributor and producer based in Elkhart, Indiana, is pleased to announce a transfer of ownership from longtime music industry leader John Musselman to Vice President Tim Ricci. Kathy Donahoe, President and Jakob v. Wolff, both member owners, will continue in their current roles.

Ricci began his career in the music industry with Music and Arts, a band and orchestra retail company based in Frederick, Maryland. He started as a sales associate at one of M&A’s stores and worked his way up through various roles to Director of Merchandising.

Ricci left M&A in December 2017 after accepting the Vice President role at AWM. “Along with Kathy and Jakob, I’m so grateful to be continuing on with John’s vision of what AWM could accomplish. It has been wonderful to learn the history of AWM and the music industry from John,since I started in January 2018. His passion for the industry and incredibly detailed analysis of product and pricing have been great influences for me. We have a wonderful team of people that work hard to provide top quality accessories and premium customer service, and we look forward to continuing that tradition.”
