After spending 30 years in physical media production from cassette duplication to distribution Jeri is now the VP of Client Services and Front End Operations at United Record Pressing; one of the largest pressing plants in the United States. Jeri is part of the new United, a company that is looking forward to the next 60+ years; after all they did press the first Beatles 7” in North America, and historically housed many African American customers, executives, and musicians in a time of segregation in their historic Motown Suite.
