What They’re Thinking: Fred Towns
Fred Towns, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, New Age Electronics, a division of SYNNEX Corp.
I started off in the industry working in the music side, disc jockeying in the late 1970s when disco music was big.
In my younger days, I was a martial artist. To make extra money working weekends, I’d check IDs and collect money at nightclubs. I realized that wasn’t best for my future. I could literally get hurt. There was always somebody bigger and badder than me.
