Lewis Mallia - Company Director
Owner of over 35 years and company director, Lewis is the glue that holds our store together. Our most universally knowledgable team member, Lewis personally spearheaded the opening and management of our separate professional audio store "Sound Devices" over in its old Sussex Street, Sydney CBD location for over 20 years.
As the first person in this country to become a dealer of then Digidesign (now Avid) Pro Tools systems back in the early 90s, he's overseen the installation and ongoing maintenance of hundreds of recording studios over his career. He's also just as at-home talking about boutique guitars, designing or servicing valve guitar amplifiers and even blazing through a piano solo on an old Rhodes.
Wesley - CFO
Overseer of the nitty-gritty (and occasionally the voice of reason when we try to order too much fun stuff...) - our CFO of many years now and often also heavily involved in website operations, communicating with suppliers and generally making sure our world keeps spinning.
Dylan Mallia - General Manager
Lewis's eldest son Dylan has been with us in both Guitar Factory and Sound Devices for over 15 years now, from enthusiastic beginnings working every Saturday while in high school, to juggling days between university classes and then eventually, full time.
He holds a Bachelor of Music degree (majoring in audio engineering) from the Australian Institute of Music, and currently oversees many areas of our business ranging from general sales, social media content, online order fulfilment and website maintenance, supplier relations and inventory management.
Often our ambassador at overseas trade shows, such as the annual winter NAMM show in Los Angeles - Dylan has personally visited the factories of ESP Japan & USA, Schecter U.S.A, Suhr, D'Addario, Pro Mark, Evans and Meinl Cymbals. He enjoys keeping our finger on the pulse of what is new and worth looking at within our constantly evolving industry.
