Almo Appoints East Coast Sales Team

  • Almo Professional A/V, a new division of Almo Corporation, the largest U.S. distributor of consumer and commercial electronics and appliances, has completed the hiring of its sales force by bringing on an entire East Coast team, effective today. The new powerhouse sales group is being led by Electrograph Systems veteran John Riley and will run concurrently with the company’s West Coast sales team, which was announced last month.
  • “Our East Coast sales team is an elite group that not only has experience working with each other but in teaming with the region’s top resellers and integrators to help them grow existing business and cultivate new opportunities,” said Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO of Almo Professional A/V. “John is a well-respected sales leader who will navigate his team to the top. This will benefit channel partners who have been missing the high level of product knowledge, education, service and ongoing support they deserve.”
  • With more than 17 years at Electrograph Systems, Riley served most recently as vice president of Eastern regional sales, and also held service, tradeshow and sales engineering roles during his tenure there. While at Electrograph, Riley repeatedly earned awards for top revenue, profitability and new accounts. Riley is InfoComm International CTS certified, along with the many others on the Almo Professional A/V sales team.
  • Riley’s team is comprised of the following industry sales professionals:
  • James Callandrillo, CTS – Territory Manager, Northeast
  • Michael Frazzitta, CTS – Territory Manager, Northeast
  • Matthew Wilder – Account Manager, Northeast
  • Bradley Schertle, CTS – Territory Manager, Mid-Atlantic
  • Krista Mooney, CTS – Senior Account Manager, Mid-Atlantic
  • Pattie Lawrence – Account Manager, Mid-Atlantic
  • Fred Rogers, CTS – Territory Manager, Southeast
  • Darren Altman – Account Manager, Southeast
