Joel Zingone joined the Martin Guitar Company in 2006. In Martin's CNC Machine Room he made necks, bridges, and other instrument components. He joined the Manufacturing management team in 2010, where he held leadership positions in the Prefinish Sanding, Pearl Inlay, Machine Room, Sub-Assembly, Sawmill and body Assembly areas. After accumulating experience in much of the Nazareth factory, Joel transitioned to Assistant Director of International Manufacturing, supporting Martin operations at their sister plant in Navojoa, Mexico. Today as Talent Development Specialist, he works onboarding new coworkers, administering employee initiatives and generally striving to build the best team of craftspeople known to instrument making. When not at the factory, Joel is host of the Martin Jam Stage at music festivals such as Newport Folk and Bonnaroo. He will back in California with the Marketing team this October for the Fretboard Summit and Desert Trip. We hope you will join Joel here at Union Grove Music on August 25th for his perspective on all things Martin.
