Aim High Audio has expanded into the Florida and Puerto Rico regions, with Victor Baut joining the Aim High Audio team.
In addition, the DaVinci Group has named Aim High Audio as its manufacturer’s representative for Florida and Puerto Rico.
“Aim High Audio was awarded the Southeast region for The DaVinci Group and has had an immediate impact this this region with our products,” said Jeff Francisco, vice president of sales for The DaVinci Group. “When Chris Gilray expressed an interest to expand the firm and the addition of Victor Baut I knew this was going to be something special. Having worked with Victor in his previous position we knew the level of expertise and excellence he will bring to Aim High Audio and The DaVinci Group.”
Victor brings national sales and distribution experience from Monster Cable, SpeakerCraft and CORE Brands to his new position as the Florida sales and southeast distribution manager.
"We are very fortunate to have Victor join our team. He will be an amazing asset to the Aim High Audio Sales team,” said Chris Gilray, president of Aim High Audio Sales and Distribution. “Not only do his relationships run deep in Florida, he is a phenomenal trainer and partner to all he works with. I worked with Victor in his role as National Sales Manager of SpeakerCraft. He is the perfect person to lead our expansion into the Florida region.
"We have all seen the significant changes the industry independent representation model has recently experienced. The dealer response we have experienced regarding the launch and products now shipping from The DaVinci Group has been unlike anything I've ever seen in this industry. When Victor Baut informed me that he felt the direction and change in philosophy at his former employer was something he could not support I knew he would be the perfect addition to our team for us to expand. I detailed our desire to expand into Florida with The DaVinci Group management team. They had also previously worked with Victor. They supported this effort by awarding Aim High Audio the Florida and Puerto Rico regions.”
"When Chris presented the opportunity of joining Aim High Audio I was very interested,” said Victor Baut. “When he presented the ability of representing The DaVinci Group in Florida I knew this was going to be something I couldn't refuse. I have always been committed to building long term relationships, dealer education and doing whatever is needed for my dealers. I've worked with the management team of The DaVinci Group during some exciting times during my career. The opportunity to be involved in the most revolutionary business model and quality products they have introduced is going to allow me to have fun again."
