Chester Springs, PA – (November 12, 2018) – With the terms of two advisory members expiring, Azione Unlimited announces the election of two new members. Effective immediately, JW Anderson, president of The Integrated Home and Al Reinhard, principal of AHT Global, replace Kim Michels of Electronic Environments and Jason Voorhees of Cantara Design. Michels has held a board position since 2014 and Voorhees has been on the board since 2015.
Azione’s unique and mutually beneficial business model strategically positions dealers and vendors as equal members. As such, both are represented equally on the Azione board, which is comprised of five vendor members and five dealer members.
“I am honored to join the Board at such an exciting time for Azione Unlimited. Over the last five years, the group has been an invaluable resource for The Integrated Home due to the unique collaboration between both dealer and vendor members,” says Anderson. “Attending Azione conferences is my favorite part of the year and I’m excited to help further the business discussions between members of all sizes!”
“It is with great honor and appreciation to be selected to the Azione board. I look forward to sharing my experience with the board and the members of our group,” says Reinhard. “Our industry is in need of professionals to erase the ‘AV Guy’ stigma and Azione is helping the next generation of AV professionals change that perception.”
Responsible for helping guide the future of the group, the Azione board is nominated by the membership, and each member serves approximately a 3-year term.
“We thank Kim Michels and Jason Voorhees for their tremendous service as Azione board members. They were integral to Azione Unlimited’s growth and accomplishments over their terms,” says Azione President Richard Glikes. “We are excited to have JW Anderson and Al Reinhard join the board, and look forward to their inputs to propel Azione forward.”
Other current members of the Azione Unlimited Advisory Board are: Travis Leo, Residential Systems, Inc; Eric Thies, DSI Luxury Technology; Chris Smith, Cloud9 Smart; Ryan Donaher, Meridian Audio; Tim Bigoness; D-Tools; Frank Sterns, Sony; Jimmy Paschke, SurgeX; and Gretchen Gilbertson, Séura.
