Announcing the New Leadership Team

September 18, 2018


We here at Carvin Amps & Audio wanted to take a moment to give you some exciting updates about our company.

We re-launched our website this past January ahead of the Winter NAMM Show and began moving forward with new leadership. Joel Kiesel will serve as President and Kristen Kiesel Lieurance will serve as Vice President. Joel and Kristen are the children of Carson Kiesel, who recently retired from his role as President, and grandchildren of founder Lowell Kiesel. They mark the third generation of the Kiesel family to head up the company.
