SoundCertified Marty McLeod About Me image

Hey, how’s it going? I’m Marty.

I’m an engineer by trade now but my background is car audio installation both professionally and as a hobby.

I decided to also get my Mobile Electronics Certified Professional (MECP) certification some time ago. As an engineer I’ve built some pretty cool audio projects over the years, too!

My general personal beliefs regarding customers and helping others

What have I installed? Everything from CB radios, alarm systems, and of course audio systems in cars, trucks, boats, big rigs, homes, and even tractors. The most rewarding thing I received from it wasn’t money. It was seeing how happy my customers were.

A number of experiences are still with me to this day that truly keep me motivated to help others sincerely.

Being able to use my enthusiasm, creative nature, and skills to help people gave me a lot of satisfaction and pride.

Some years ago I ran a small side business to help pay off my student loan debt. It was a significant learning experience and I greatly appreciate the people I met and worked for from various backgrounds as I traveled.

My old business logo I designed myself for my former website based in Norcross, Georgia. I even had custom polo shirts made! Interesting times.

To this day, there are 3 basic principles I live by:

  • Treat people right. Everyone deserves the same amount of respect, rich or poor
  • Look out for the other person’s best interests
  • Sincerity, honesty, and fixing mistakes when you make them are critical

And last but not least – I’m a car audio fanatic and always have been!

Getting great sound and customizing your system isn’t always easy (trust me on that!). However, it feels fantastic to see – and hear – the results.

In the end, shouldn’t it be about having fun, enjoying the music you love, and having a system you can be proud of?

I think so.
