Denon Custom Install Training Manager Wins Powerball
Matthew Good says he’ll keep job as D&M/Denon custom-installation training manager after collecting $192 million from Arizona Powerball jackpot.
Matthew Good, who has worked as a custom installation training manager for Denon and parent company D&M Holdings for more than a decade, is the second winner of the $587.5 million Powerball jackpot.
He says he plans to keep his job after collecting about $192 million – a lump sum he chose to collect now instead of after the potential fiscal cliff.
According to countless news sources, Good grew up in Wormleysburg, Pa., and currently lives in the Phoenix suburb of Fountain Hills.
Looks like now he’ll be able to afford some of the high-end consumer electronics he’s been selling for Denon for more than a decade.
According to Linkedin, he has been a custom installation product trainer since 2000. Previously, he was operations manager for the specialty A/V retailer Hi Fi Unlimited.
D&M Holdings is now known as D+M Group, the world still knows them by their former brand, named after a merger between Denon and Marantz. The company also offers the Boston Acoustics brand of audio products. It sold high-end McIntosh audio gear before divesting the company earlier this year.
