Leon Speakers Factory Hosts Azione Unlimited and 68 Lead Technicians During Exclusive Leadership Symposium


ANN ARBOR, MI (JUNE 26, 2023)  ̶  Azione Unlimited recently brought together 68 dealer-member technicians and four vendor members in Ann Arbor, Michigan. This two-day meeting focused on building relationships, discovering new resources, and sharing best practices among the group’s top technicians. To top it all off, Leon Speakers gave Azione a true feel for their company culture and daily regimen with a comprehensive factory tour and listening experience.

Leon’s Director of Operations, Nelini Faulkner, conveyed to the Azione team what makes Leon so special when she said, “I miss this place when I’m gone. When I leave at the end of each day, I can’t wait to come back. The art, the people, the energy. It’s a place that I truly love to create and collaborate.”

The Leon team took Azione’s group on a three-part tour designed to give attendees a glimpse into the daily regimen of creating artistic audio solutions at Leon. Group one, led by COO Ethan Kaplan, started with a behind-the-scenes tour of the manufacturing facility where each piece is custom-made, assembled, and tested. A second group met Carolyn Ceccoli, Director of Residential Sales & Marketing, in the Leon Loft for an immersive Top Gun listening experience led by Alex Keomany and Mark Maynard of the Sales & Engineering teams, respectively. Lastly, Group three followed MoFi Electronics President John Schaffer through their production studio and listening room, which concluded with an exclusive brewery tour and tasting of Mothfire Brewing’s recently released craft brews.

“Azione Unlimited loves to have meetings with our owners, however, it seems every time we dig deeper into the dealer teams, the more pervasive the excitement,” says Azione President and CCO, Richard Glikes. “The Leon people and facility provided an unforgettable experience, and it reminded us how important family is in business.”

Noah Kaplan, Leon Founder and President adds, “We were immensely grateful for the opportunity to host such an awesome group of techs from the Azione group. Inviting them into Leon, sharing our culture and a few beers reminded us all of the great partners we get to work with every day!”

Azione hosted Lead Techs for the first time after focusing on sales, marketing, and operations leaders in the past. This meeting was well received by the group of techs that attended, and friendships made will continue to prosper. Attendees have already expressed great interest in future Leadership Symposiums for technicians.

Richard capped the symposium by saying, “I walked away from this event feeling really happy with the depth of the content and comradery that was experienced.”
