Southern California independent manufacturers sales representative firm AV Partners has announced the addition of Screen Innovations, URC, and Lenbrook to the firm’s portfolio. AV Partners will be exhibiting these and nine other key brands at the March 19 and 21 SoCal CEDIA Tech Summits. In addition, channel sales veteran Danny Thompson has joined the firm.

“Screen Innovations, URC, and Lenbrook are all leaders in their categories, each bringing something special to AV integrators and their homeowner clientele,” says Eric Leicht, president of AV Partners. “Their addition to AV Partners’ portfolio is perfectly in-sync with our planned expansion into shading, lighting, and control.”

AV Partners - Danny Thompson
Danny Thompson

Thompson brings four decades of consumer electronics experience. For the last three decades he has held sales and training roles with Oliver Marketing, MK Marketing, Savant, and Kaleidescape, and has earned numerous industry awards and certifications (ISF). As regional sales manager, Thompson covers San Diego, Inland Empire, and Arizona for AV Partners.

“AV Partners has always been a ‘hands-on’ rep firm,” says Leicht. “We are on multiple job sites every day, helping dealers with everything from speaker placement to taking measurements for FDA variances for LASER projectors. With myself, Martin, John, and K.C, we have lots of territory relationships and collective knowledge, but when it comes to things like troubleshooting a large HDMI matrix switching system, it can often be ‘all hands-on deck.’ With Danny’s vast expertise, it makes us that much more of a resource to our partners. We, along with our vendors and dealers are thrilled to have Danny onboard.”

 Leicht invites all dealers in SoCal to visit AV Partners exhibit at the March 19 Orange County and March 21 Los Angeles CEDIA Tech Summits. There, the company will be exhibiting Screen Innovations, URC, Lenbrook (Bluesound, NAD, DALI, PSB), Harman Luxury (Arcam, JBL Synthesis, Lexicon, Revel, Mark Levinson), AudioControl, Digital Projection, FutureReady Solutions, Kordz, Lumagen, and Samsung.
