Atlona announces that Remy Nguyen and Justin Sattazahn have joined the company as regional sales managers in the southwest and northcentral U.S. territories, where they will work closely with partners and end users to expand Atlona’s commercial AV business in their respective regions.
Nguyen previously served as Atlona’s regional sales manager – southwest, before taking on a brief role outside the AV industry, and he returns with an expanded territory covering Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii, New Mexico, southern California, southern Nevada, Utah and El Paso, Texas. His previous industry experience includes a regional sales manager position at Extron, where he developed their Pacific morthwest region business, and he also served as director of Sales and Business Development for AV systems integrator Avidex.
“Atlona has been on the forefront of AV product development, and its latest innovations with the Omega Series and an expanded PTZ camera range are ideally suited for touchless AV and distance learning environments,” says Nguyen. “I am also excited that Panduit has brought a differentiating message to Atlona with its network infrastructure solutions and built an organizational infrastructure to better serve our regional distributors, dealers and end users.”
Sattazahn will also work closely with partners and end users to raise brand awareness across his territory, which includes Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota. He brings extensive commercial and residential AV and pro audio experience to Atlona across systems design and integration, sound engineering, and live entertainment production and management.
“I look forward to growing our business with low-voltage and electrical contractors, which will help Atlona customers transition to complete AV over IP systems,” says Sattazahn. “In addition to Atlona’s networked AV solutions, I see Velocity as a key differentiator. My experience in systems integration gives me a strong understanding of how IP-based AV control simplifies design and configuration for integrators and provides a simple and scalable control solution for end users.”
Jamey Swigert, Atlona director of AV Sales and Business Development, adds, “Remy and Justin bring successful track records and broad industry experience to our team, which will strengthen our overarching initiatives for continued business growth and getting closer to our customers in every region. We welcome them to the Atlona team and look forward to their contributions.”
