Elite Screens has added two industry veterans to its CI/AV channel sales. Both Jeff Klida and Jim Donnelly have been dedicated to the custom industry for many years.
Klida will be the regional CI/AV sales manager for the west, midwest, and northeast divisions. He has more than 20 years experience in manufacturing and sales, primarily in the integrated AV and consumer electronics sector. In addition to his industry skills, Klida has an MA from Michigan State University and has worked as an associate professor at Harry Truman College. The benefits of his industry knowledge and academic professionalism are apparent in his track record where he has exponentially increased sales figures across the years with companies such as ICE Cable Systems, Dwin Electronics, XLO Electric, and Kinergetics Research, noted Elite’s marketing manager, Dave Rodgers.
Donnelly will be the regional sales manager for the south and southeast divisions. He comes from a nine-year sales background focused on audio video and wireless communications, where he proved instrumental in promoting increases in sales volume. His devotion to product knowledge and service made him an asset to companies like AVC Technologies, One Touch Home Entertainment, Staples, and Verizon Wireless, Rodgers noted.
