If you’re in the audio biz, you know about Monster Cable. And now, they’ve put their mark not only on boutique cables, but also on “the-stadium-formerly-known-as” Candlestick Park — home of the San Francisco 49ers. Monster Cable has been a Bay Area company for 25 years, and was founded in a garage in the Richmond district; Noel Lee, known as “The Head Monster,” was born and educated in San Francisco.
Last June, San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors approved a proposal by the Mayor to allow the 49ers to pursue a naming rights agreement with five pre-approved companies, which included Oracle, Virgin, Macromedia, and Wells Fargo Bank. After weeks of consideration, the 49ers reached a deal with Monster.
