CTL Executive Vice President
I’m very excited for the summer to hit here in rainy Portland, Oregon. Yes, it’s still raining and it’s June!
But, I’m also very excited to announce our recent partnership with Oregon Music News. CTL has agreed to be the official PC and HDTV sponsor for Oregon Music News and participate in their busy event line up over the next six months.
In addition to technology, we are all big music fans here at CTL. In fact, amongst our employees we are proud to have guitarists, drummers, bass players, singers, and even DJ’s. While we often debate which bands are the best, we all agree that music and technology go hand in hand. Just take a look at Peter Gabriel who recently invested and help launch the tech start up Filter. How cool is that?
Musicians and Technologists are always pushing the creative envelope. Here at CTL, we try to include our hobbies and passions into all the products we make.
I hope everyone has a chance to visit our great state and attend some of the awesome festivals and events this summer. You won’t regret it. Also, be sure to stop by the Oregon Music News booth and check out CTL’s latest products. In addition to the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival (July 2 ~ 5)
