President

Doreen Daley Skopp 

Vice President and Controller

Evan's mission is to provide outstanding sales representation to musical instrument suppliers; and to provide instrument builders and brand owners with components, building materials, production resources, marketing support and customer service that makes selling their instruments easier and more profitable.

Evan is a veteran Musical Instruments sales executive with extensive experience in Sales, Marketing and Product Development. When Evan took over OEM Sales at Seymour Duncan* in the early-‘90s, it was an “ancillary profit center” generating around 10% of the company's income. By 2008, Seymour Duncan’s OEM revenue had expanded 20-fold and represented nearly half of the company’s annual turnover.


In 2012, Evan co-founded Inside Track International with Doreen Daley Skopp to represent suppliers of OEM products to M.I. designers, and builders; and provide production liaison services and marketing consultation to brand managers and factories.

Doreen has attended many musical instruments trade shows over the years including multiple visits to NAMM, the Frankfurt Musikmesse, the Tokyo Music Fair, the Shanghai Messe, and Merlefest. She’s learning electric bass guitar and has performed in an all-girls band. Doreen is co-owner and co-founder of Inside Track.

Evan and Doreen are eager to work with musical instrument suppliers. They can supply you with the branded components and building materials you need. They can help you get set up with manufacturing facilities. And they can perform top notch marketing services. Please contact them and they’ll put together a custom plan for you!
