At the 2016 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, Calif., PreSonus, based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, hosted upbeat dealer/sales rep and international distributor meetings reflecting the company’s excitement over its newest product releases and strong sales. VP of Sales Rick Naqvi presided, as many attendees got their first chance to hear PreSonus’ new ULT-series loudspeakers. As in past years, the company’s annual dealer, rep, and international distributor awards were a highlight of the meetings.
The U.S. Rep of the Year award went to Lienau AV Associates, which serves the Mid-Atlantic region (Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York Metro, Pennsylvania, and Virginia). Online retailer Sweetwater Sound claimed the Dealer of the Year award. Karen Lopez of Alliance Audio Group received the Inside Salesperson of the Year award, while Gene Williams of Frequency Sales was named Demo God of the Year. To top off the U.S. accolades, Ted Bahas and Jeff Mac of Techrep Marketing grabbed the Key Account Management award.
