About Ron Manus
Ron Manus is the third generation of the Manus family helping to lead Alfred Music into the future. Ron joined Alfred Music in 1988 and today is the company's Chief Business Development Officer.
Ron's energetic and creative contributions to Alfred Music have improved the company in many vital ways. In the late 1980s, he managed the creation and growth of Alfred's New Media division, expanding the company's core strengths beyond book publishing and spurring the evolution of music instruction into contemporary mediums such as software, enhanced CDs, videos, DVDs, and later streaming content. He also played a major role during the 1990s when the company transitioned to a team-based structure, a system that allows the business to react more quickly to changing market opportunities. In 2005, Ron was an instrumental part in the acquisition of Warner Brothers Publications from the Warner Music Group which brought into the company the music of George and Ira Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Tony Bennett, Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, The Rolling Stones, Madonna, Van Halen, Green Day, and hundreds more.
Ron is one of Alfred's top-selling authors, having over 100 published titles to his credit, including instructional items for guitar, bass, banjo, harmonica and ukulele.
