Following up on a campus visit in November by Derek Badala, Director of Sales for Armadillo Enterprises, some folks from Full Sail’s Career Development department recently made a journey to Tampa to tour of Armadillo’s 110,000-square-foot facilities.

Established in 1994, Armadillo Enterprises manages the international distribution of Dean Guitars, Dime Amplification, Luna Guitars, and ddrum. They have two CNC machines on site, 50 employees, and annual sales of $10 million.

The Armadillo Enterprises and Career Development relationship is a new one, but in that brief span of time we have already seen employment and internship opportunities in the realm of digital media, sales, marketing, and graphic design.

There are some truly thrilling ideas being discussed right now and we’re excited about what the future of this relationship will bring. There are some great things in the works that will surely benefit both students and graduates of Full Sail University.
