Meet Lyrics new Managing Director
One of our newest patients in the United States loved his Lyric experience so much that he decided to join the company! Bryan Holmes wore hearing aids for 7 years before his audiologist introduced him to Lyric hearing aids. “When I first heard about Lyric it seemed too good to be true. I found that my prior hearing aids really didn’t fit well with my lifestyle. I was an active 47-year-old with a high profile marketing career at Johnson & Johnson. I was a bit self conscious about my hearing aids, particularly at work, and I still had difficulty with wind and background noise, especially in big meetings.”
After trying Lyric hearing aids, Bryan immediately found that Lyric was not only a very convenient and completely discreet solution, but that the sound quality exceeded his expectations. “Lyric has really changed my life. I can hear very well in all those challenging situations that used to be so exhausting. I find my performance at work and quality-of-life in general has really changed for the better. My family will tell you that they have also noticed the difference. I really love that I can hear 24/7 and never have to lift a finger to do so."
Bryan officially joined the Lyric team this past January and is now the Managing Director for Lyric globally. He could not be more excited about this role, particularly given his own experience as a hearing aid wearer. "I tell everyone about my Lyrics vs. before when I was hoping nobody would notice my hearing aids.” I have been in healthcare and medical device marketing for over 20 years and this is the most exciting opportunity in my career. It’s truly a unique opportunity to combine my extensive experience in healthcare marketing with my unique perspective as a patient to make Lyric an extraordinary success.”
The recent rollout of the smaller Lyric hearing device has been exciting, but as Bryan says “We have a lot of work to do for Lyric to realize it’s full potential.*** Unlike most people I sought help fairly early in my hearing loss, but I know I would have acted much sooner had I known about Lyric 7 years ago. With Lyric, I believe we have the responsibility to make as many people aware of what Lyric has to offer as early as possible. I truly believe that it will help people get over the barriers to taking that first step [toward treating hearing loss].”
