Meet the Team
The Edwards Team is dedicated to providing brass musicians with the highest quality instruments made today. Through innovations in design, attention to detail and unmatched customer service, our small company has quickly emerged as the industry leader in custom brass instrument manufacturing.
Director of Development & Marketing
Christan Griego is Director of Development & Marketing for the Edwards Instrument Company. Christan joined Edwards in 1998 as the company's trombone rep. He was promoted to his current job in 2002; his responsibilities then expanded to include Edwards Trumpets. Christan has made significant contributions to both the Edwards and Getzen lines of brass instruments.
Traveling to annual trade shows is one of Christan's most important responsibilities. He has "fit" thousands of players with Edwards Trombones and Trumpets while on the road. As Edwards is a factory-direct company, Christan's presence at conferences and festivals allows musicians to simulate a visit to the Pro Stop in Elkhorn.
Christan also works closely with the Edwards/Getzen in-house production manager to bridge the gap between production and customers. He can often be found working with Ron Knaflic on order fulfillment, as well. Christan is a freelance tenor and bass trombonist in the southern Wisconsin area.
Customer Service Associate
Most customers are familiar with Customer Service Associate Cathy Duesterbeck, since she is the first person customers talk to when they call the factory. Cathy joined Edwards in 1999, and her numerous responsibilities include taking and processing orders, tracking order progress, answering customer questions, and generally keeping the business running smoothly. Cathy's favorite aspect of the job is working with customers. She is a people-oriented person and enjoys interacting with the many musicians she deals with every day.
Cathy is married and has three adult daughters. She is an avid sewer and quilter as well as an active community volunteer.
Michael Clobes joined the Edwards team in 2006 working summers as
an intern. After completing his degree in Music Performance at Whitewater
University, Michael became a full time part of the Edwards Team in
Mike has many different responsibilities at Edwards, from prepping slides and filling orders to working with customers. He and his dad have teamed up to create the new wooden triggers for our tenor and bass trombones. He is also extremely active as a freelance bass, tenor, and jazz trombonist. He can be seen performing with numerous groups in Wisconsin.
Joshua Brown joined the Edwards Team in 2001 after meeting Christan Griego at the International Trombone Festival. His first website redesign, launched in October 2002, better reflected the Edwards image of a leading brass manufacturer. Joshua also implemented an online shopping cart where, for the first time, customers could build a custom brass instrument online. In addition to the Edwards family of websites, Joshua designs and develops for squidoo.com, Griego Mouthpieces, Kagarice Brass Editions, and many others.
