Mark Morton has been actively engaged in the pro audio and video industry since 1969. In 1976, he purchased an existing pro audio business (Sounds Great) and continued to aggressively expand their outside sales and installation efforts. The 1980’s brought increased emphasis on their already successful church audio and video contracting division.
The 1990’s were the decade of the “Branson, Missouri Phenomenon.” Sounds Great and newly-formed SG Integration provided audio, theatrical lighting and video production to the majority of theaters that sprang up just 38 miles from their door. These venues ranged from 750 – 4000 seat theaters. The successes continued into the 2000’s with an ever-expanding list that included a church, school, theme park, athletic facility and corporate systems, designed and installed.
In 2005, Mark Morton and Donnie Brawner, President & CEO of Paragon 360™ began their collaboration and integration on a multitude of projects for clients that were demanding a high-quality, turn-key solution to AVL design.
In October of 2013, Donnie & Karen Brawner acquired Sounds Great. Mark still serves as a Sales Representative for many long-time clients of Paragon 360™.
Mark is married to his bride of 42 years, Verna, who recently retired from her position as Microbiology Supervisor for Cox Health Systems. They have one son Nathan, and they are celebrating their new grandbaby.
