Founder, Whiteley Systems and Solutions

From Plexiglass Shields to professional Solutions

It all started from a drummer’s dissatisfaction with collapsible, plexiglass drums shields and drum enclosures, and a desire for more space, a more professional appearance, better noise reduction, and a product that wasn’t likely to collapse in the middle of a set.

In 2007, Chad Whiteley led a team of engineers and acousticians to build the world’s first seamless drum enclosure for Gateway Church’s early television broadcasts. The product gained immediate popularity, and led to the development of the Whiteley brand.

Over time, the business expanded to provide whole church solutions for audio, video, and lighting to many of the largest churches in the United States, and to solo artists like Kari Jobe and Tim McGraw. Three core values stand at the heart of it all.

  1. Innovation – Staying on the forefront of technology means our clients have the best and most cost-effective solutions available. We’re constantly adding new products and services to meet the needs of a progressive landscape.
  2. Customization – We’re not a big-box store. We want to know as much as we can about the problems and opportunities of each of our clients, so we can offer them “right size” drum enclosure solutions that avoid wasting resources on the wrong products.
  3. Stewardship – Managing your resources effectively matters. We want you get the biggest possible bang for your buck, and stay in your budget, so that your work can have a huge impact – not just today, but long-term. That’s why stewardship is one of our core values.
