Moving with the company is newly named CEO Jayce Murphy, who will be tasked with further developing support services as well as overseeing third party integration of OBEDIAâ€™s enterprise management system.
â€œOBEDIA was born out of the need for a more effective way to service complex technology and has evolved into an educational and training resource for those making and producing music with computer hardware and software,â€? said co-founder and newly appointed CEO Jayce Murphy. â€œThe move to Nashville puts us in a better position to work closely with its vibrant music community, which has embraced technology in producing music known throughout the world. As CEO, Iâ€™m looking forward to expanding on our success and to bring service and support into the next generation.â€?
