Azione Unlimited (AU) announced the first wave of vendor members.
Twenty vendors have joined forces with Azione. Another five manufacturers of video are available to dealer members through distribution partnerships. More programs are in discussion and will be solidified prior to the beginning of the Japanese fiscal year April 1.
Mr. Glikes and friends shot a You Tube video to introduce the new vendor members. View the video at: youtube.com.
Brands include Sonance, Revel, Canton, Monitor Audio, JL Audio, Integra, Stewart, Epson, Digital Projection, IC Realtime, Lexicon, SurgeX, Perfect Path, Salamander Designs, Certified Cyber Solutions, Liberty Wire & Cable, and JBL Synthesis. Video will be handled through distribution partners fulfilling products from Sharp, Panasonic, Samsung, LG, and Panasonic Professional.
Vendor members and dealer members will serve on the Advisory Board. Three vendor executives and two dealer principals have already been chosen as Founders. The remaining two vendor board positions and four dealer founders will be unveiled within the next two weeks.
“It is an honor to have vendor members join a group that stands for something more than ‘a deal,’” said Richard Glikes. “We will be as much an ‘education group’ as we are a buying group. Sharing execution excellence in free member meetings, exceptional marketing, and aiding in vendor relationships are part of our value proposition that I believe will over the next year catapult us to the preeminent position. We are now accepting members with a goal of having 150 by year end.”
