Home Technology Specialists of America (HTSA), in accordance with the organization’s bylaws, completed a nomination and electoral process resulting in the election of two new members to the board of directors. These new directors are Andrea Reiner of Innerspace Electronics (Port Chester, NY) and Terence Murray of Audiovisions (Lake Forest, CA).
Reiner and Murray will each assume their new role on the HTSA board starting in January 2017. They replace outgoing directors Jim Richards of Future Home Systems and Design, and Navot Shoresh of Spire Integrated Systems, each leaving the board upon the expiration of their term.
Both Murray and Reiner bring decades of experience in custom integration to HTSA’s board. In addition to this, both bring a diverse range of functional skills and knowledge to their role.
In addition to her duties in managing the financial and administration departments of Innerspace Electronics, Reiner brings an extensive background in sales and marketing to the HTSA board. Prior to co-founding Innerspace Electronics with husband Barry in 1988, Reiner’s background included serving an eight-year stint in marketing with IBM. She also has distinguished herself by spearheading Innerspace Electronics’ philanthropic activities through the Elf Foundation. Innerspace Electronics joined HTSA in 2008.
Murray has a 25-year track record in the consumer electronics industry. Prior to assuming his role at Audiovisions as vice president, strategic development and operations, Murray held positions with Best Buy (senior director of services), Escient Technologies (vice president and general manager), and Phoenix Systems (general manager and partner). Murray also served on the board of directors for the trade group Custom Electronics Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) in 2014-2015.
“HTSA continues to benefit from its best-in-class retail and integration membership yielding spectacularly qualified candidates for its board of directors,” said Jon Robbins, executive director of HTSA. “Each director brings a deep and unique experience, as well as a richly varied functional knowledge that helps ensure the continued success of the group. Andrea Reiner and Terrence Murray are just two more examples of the deep bench of power players helping guide HTSA to ever-greater levels of success.”
