Los Angeles, CA, January 17, 2017 — Roland Corporation is pleased to announce the appointment of Brian Alli as the vice president of artist relations and business development. With more than ten years of Roland service, most recently as the vice president of sales for Roland Corporation U.S., Brian has successfully led his sales teams and consistently grown the business for Roland in the United States. In his new role, Alli will drive Roland’s relationships with strategic partners (artists, influencers and businesses), develop strategic communications plans, and deliver new market opportunities.
Alli brings decades of music and audio experience to his new role within Roland, having served on the management and executive teams of Jordon Kitt’s Music and Panasonic. His wide range of responsibilities has spanned the piano, combo, consumer electronics wholesale, and retail markets.

Our goal now is to provide an even higher level of international support for them. We have also opened many new doors for market growth with new corporate relationships. I am really excited to lead both of these efforts and look forward to the new responsibilities.”
