Founded in 2004, Second Encore Productions offered music-industry related services such as CD replication, CD duplication, and band merchandise, while working with clients such as Damon Johnson (Thin Lizzy, Alice Cooper, Brother Cane, Whiskey Falls), Rhonda Smith (Prince, Jeff Beck), Moses Mo (Mother's Finest), and Clay Cook (Zac Brown Band). Ten 19 Entertainment provided music industry consulting for up-and-coming musicians.
“With the popularity of digital media over the past several years and the resulting decline of CD sales,” Ten 19 Consulting Owner/CEO Chris Hereth explains, “I was forced to change the business model at Second Encore, shifting its primary focus from CD replication and duplication to web design and graphic design. And regarding Ten 19 Entertainment, the business model worked to an extent, but we were limiting ourselves by focusing only on the music industry. Widening the spectrum to include small businesses while integrating some of Second Encore's services was the next logical step and the perfect fit to create Ten 19 Consulting.”
To coincide with the merger, Todd Smith, a local business consultant, has been hired as Ten 19 Consulting's Chief Operations Officer, bringing several years of business experience to Ten 19. “Now that Todd is on board, we have the tools we need with over 40 years of collective business experience under one roof, which is undoubtedly a huge asset to Ten 19 Consulting and its clients,” states Hereth. “And although our primary focus will be towards start-ups and small businesses, Todd's experience also gives us the ability to be of assistance to larger companies as well, with services such as employee background checks and employee drug testing.
Ten 19 Consulting, headquartered in Cartersville, Georgia, USA, specializes in small business consulting, and offers peripheral services for small businesses such as web design, social media management, press releases, graphic design, LLC incorporation, employee background checks, and more.
