INFiLED Announces New Appointments to Its ProAV Team
INFiLED says it has hired a few familiar faces to its ProAV team. The North American fixed install team welcomes Ryan Wilhelm as regional sales director (Southeast) under the direction of Rick Bortles, senior VP of strategy. Along with Wilhelm, INFiLED has hired for the operations side of the business: Kayla Fontanilla and Jason Tennstedt. Fontanilla has joined the team as sales and marketing coordinator, and Tennstedt has come aboard as senior field application engineer.
“Our North American organization is growing again. I’m pleased to have Ryan Wilhelm join my team to cover the Southeast territory. He joins Jason Manguba and Zack Stewart who recently started in the West and Central regions to expand our reach for dvLED fixed installation projects. Whether you’re considering applications in transportation, retail, corporate meeting rooms or entertainment venues, our displays consistently deliver top-tier performance, unmatched reliability and hassle-free maintenance,” said Bortles. “Kayla will assist in sales and marketing support. I’ll look to her to be a resource for our growing team to facilitate trade shows/events and assist with our marketing campaigns. Both roles are key in our expansion strategy.”
“I am enthusiastic about the prospect of joining a world-class manufacturing organization with a highly experienced leadership team. Working under the guidance of Rick, who’s renowned for his exceptional leadership capabilities, offers an invaluable opportunity to cultivate and apply best-in-class customer support and service practices. Furthermore, the presence of an accomplished team unified in their commitment to making INFiLED the foremost choice for LED solutions, underscores the potential for achieving market leadership,” said Wilhelm.
“I’m new to the AV industry, and I’m excited for all the opportunities and knowledge I will gain from everyone at the company. I am thrilled to begin working with this wonderful team and have felt so welcomed from the very start of this process. I have no doubt I will enjoy every second of working here,” Fontanilla added.
“I am very excited to be joining the INFiLED team in support of their technical/project management side of the house. Over the years I have had a great number of opportunities to work with many outstanding organizations. INFiLED is one of those organizations that is growing rapidly and bringing several exceptional industry leaders aboard. I am looking forward to being a part of this growth to help shape the INFiLED North America presence,” said Tennstedt.
“I am excited to have Jason join the Tech and Service team as a Senior Field Application Engineer. Jason comes to us with a wealth of expertise as a System Design Engineer, Project Manager and Field Technical Support person. In his role as a Senior Field Application Engineer, Jason will be responsible for supporting projects in Broadcast, Rental/Staging, and Fixed Installs. I’m confident that his skills and dedication will make him a valuable addition to our team,” said Henry Ambrose, EVP/GM for INFiLED.
INFiLED says Wilhelm is a highly accomplished sales professional with a track record of driving business growth and innovation. He served as a driving force behind the expansion of new business and has established himself as a “key player in the industry.” The company also said his efforts played a role in shaping the development of digital signage, and his insights led to the rapid expansion of a national digital signage network.
Tennstedt has been an AV design engineer for over 19 years. His experience spans project coordination, needs analyses, budgeting and lead roll out execution. INFiLED says he’s been responsible for the completion of more than 350 high profile designs and installations in the government, corporate, education and retail sectors that totaled more than $225 million dollars.
Fontanilla is new to the ProAV industry and recently graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in Communications from California Lutheran University. Her experience in managing social media channels and other digital marketing efforts will aid INFiLED’s North American expansion.
