On Thursday, December 3, Fred Gretsch hosted a special luncheon in honor of the Gretsch Guitar team at Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) at a chic Italian restaurant in Scottsdale. The luncheon was attended by many key staff who work with the Gretsch brand including Joe Carducci, Gretsch guitar marketing manager, and members of the sales team, tech services, consumer & customer support, the parts department, and more.
To show his appreciation of the team’s hard work, commitment, and contribution to the Gretsch legacy, Fred, with Joe’s assistance, presented each member with a certificate of recognition.
Founded in 1883 as a manufacturer of string instruments and drums in Brooklyn, NY, the Gretsch Company has produced some of the world’s greatest guitars and drums over the span of four generations. With its emphasis on hand-craftsmanship and commitment to quality, Gretsch has pioneered new designs and manufacturing techniques, winning endorsements from some of the music industry’s most respected artists. Without the dedicated service of many Gretsch employees, such as those at FMIC, Gretsch could not have successfully sustained the vision of company founder, Friedrich Gretsch, these past 126 years.
Thanks again “Team Gretsch” for all you do every day in support of the Gretsch brand and business. As we prepare to begin year 127, we look forward to continuing our great working relationship with you.
