Hebron, KY — Technologies has hired an accomplished industry veteran, Jeff Mahan, as its new western regional sales manager.
Mahan comes to NuVo from Exceptional Innovation, maker of the Life|ware digital entertainment and automation solution, where he served first as national sales manager and subsequently as director of sales. From 2004 to 2006, Mahan was regional sales manager for Colorado vNet, a manufacturer of home automation and distributed AV systems. Prior to his work for CEDIA industry manufacturers, he spent a decade in electronics retail with specialty chain Ultimate Electronics, serving as a sales executive, store manager and finally a store general manager.
Overall, Mahan’s career experience includes five years of managing indirect and field channel sales in the CEDIA market, eight years in leadership management positions, and 14 years of specialization in high-end home electronics and custom integration sales and design. In his prior positions, Mahan worked on numerous NuVo installations, including the 2009 New American Home project in Las Vegas, and is familiar with the company’s products and philosophies.
“Jeff has established himself as someone who brings a great work ethic and integrity to our business,” said Chris Westfall, NuVo’s vice president sales, USA. “He is an outstanding fit both for our culture and for our future.”
Mahan is a resident of the Denver area, where he lives with his wife and four children. He will maintain his office in Colorado.
“NuVo is a fantastic organization with reliable products that are easy to use and profitable for the dealer, and its customer service is second to none in the industry,” Mahan said. “I’m excited about the products we’re launching this fall, especially the Renovia power line carrier solution, which will open up a huge new revenue opportunity for our dealers by enabling them to retrofit high-quality whole home audio into any existing home, multi-dwelling unit or small business. Best of all, I can reconnect with a number of old friends, including some of the industry’s best dealers and representatives.”
