Ron Schmidt
Account Manager

Ignoring the fact that Ron is a Steelers fan, Vinny invited Ron to be a part of the Split Second Sound family in April of 2016. He has proven himself to be a necessary part of the family acting as the Account Manager. Like much of our staff, Ron is from up north in Buffalo, New York. After graduating high school from Newfane High School, he furthered his education by graduating from Penn State University. He began working at a local news station in Allentown, Pennsylvania as an editor and photographer.With the recommendation from a close friend and the longing for new opportunities, Ron made the decision to move to Charlotte. He began working at WSOC-TV continuing as a photographer and editor. Once he settled into Charlotte, he decided to get out of the news business and worked as a manager at companies such as Enterprise Rent- A Car and Mattress Firm before coming to Split Second Sound where he is our Account Manager handling all our contracts, payments, and DJ scheduling.Ron enjoys spending time with his wife Laura and son Jacob. On Fall Sundays, don’t even think about interrupting him during the Steeler’s game. He also enjoys golfing, camping, and anything outdoors.

Brittany Estes
Brand & Sales Manager

Brittany, a Winston-Salem native, has been a part of the Split Second Family since 2014. But not as an employee. In 2014, we were lucky enough to be her wedding DJ when she married her husband, Scott.  She finally joined our team in 2019 as our Brand & Sales Manager, after being a Kindergarten teacher for over 10 years. We are so happy to have her with us, she lights up our office with her kindness and smile. When she is not connecting with our clients in our office, you can find her spending time with her 2 pups, watching the Panthers play or spending time with family and friends.

Maddie Buchta
Office & Sales Coordinator

Proudly raised in Charlotte, Maddie graduated from the University of South Carolina Beaufort with a degree in Hospitality Management and missed the city so much, she moved back home the day after graduation.  After a rewarding and successful event planning career at Charlotte Country Club, Maddie is thrilled to be the newest member of the Split Second Sound family.  She is passionate about providing excellent customer service while getting to know her clients on a personal level.  She understands how overwhelming planning an event can be and she loves that Split Second Sound alleviates the pressure and stress of finding the best quality entertainment.  When she's not in the office, you can find Maddie hanging out around South End with her boyfriend and friends, petting any dog that she comes into contact with, or at home curled up on the couch watching Netflix and ordering from Postmates.
