AUDIO-TECHNICA NAMES SIGNAL MARKETING REP OF THE YEAR


Stow, OH 06-15-2004 — Signal Marketing has been recognized as Audio-Technica’s Rep of the Year for the second year in a row. Marc Lee Shannon, Audio-Technica’s Vice President, Sales, presented Signal Marketing President Steve Trump with the award at the A-T annual awards dinner and ceremony June 9 in Atlanta, GA. Based in Midvale, UT, Signal Marketing serves the U.S. Rocky Mountain region.

Held during this year’s InfoComm Show, the award ceremony honors Audio-Technica’s dedicated force of manufacturer’s representatives. The Audio-Technica Rep of the Year recipient is congratulated for outstanding sales performance and bestowed with A-T’s beloved Samurai doll award. Signal Marketing was acknowledged for excelling in the areas of sales, marketing, and customer service, as well as for the consistent success of the company’s efforts to reach common objectives.

Marc Lee Shannon commented on the Rep of the Year presentation: “Signal Marketing has accomplished what few Audio-Technica rep firms have been able to achieve — back-to-back Rep of the Year awards. In today’s market climate, the value of the independent rep firm has to be on par with the overall service equation and in harmony with the goals and vision of the manufacturer. Signal Marketing has demonstrated what it takes to be an A-T rep, with strong product sales in all categories, and a service ethic that is uniquely honed for positive results.”
