RowOne Changes Ownership

Former company sales and marketing director Todd Girdis acquires the brand, readies for late summer deliveries.

RowOne CEO Todd Girdis

Home theater seating company RowOne has relaunched with its former director of sales and marketing Todd Girdis leading the charge as new owner and CEO. Since acquiring the company from founder Robert Cribbs in February of this year, Todd and team are busy supporting dealers, making some refinements to existing models, expanding the independent manufacturer sales representative network, and readying for late summer product deliveries.

Girdis is already well-known by the company’s dealer base, many of whom are members of the Home Technology Specialists of America (HTSA) and Authorized Integrators Network (AiN) buying groups, both of which RowOne is a participating manufacturer.

A former AV integrator himself, Girdis played an integral role in significantly growing RowOne to the point of achieving a top 5 home theater seating company ranking in CE Pro’s 2018 CE Pro 100 Brand Analysis.

“I’m energized to continue the positive momentum,” says Girdis. “We are open for business, actively catching dealers up on the new RowOne, supporting customer service, and specifying designs and configurations for customers’ theaters. Many of the RowOne Direct Collection seating styles that dealers and homeowners have come to love over the years will remain, and will be available for fulfillment as soon as late summer, and we are making some exciting enhancements to several models that are sure to make RowOne even that much more ‘the talk of the town’”.

RowOne Prestige Seats

RowOne will be stocking ample inventory near Ann Arbor, MI where the company is now based, making it possible to reach any dealer in the Continental U.S. within seven business days. If the dealer prefers, RowOne’s White Glove Delivery Service direct to customer’s homes will also be offered to all dealers.

Part of the relaunch also includes RowOne engaging the network of CEDIA channel dealers and expanding upon the number of authorized dealers offering the company’s seating. Interested dealers can contact Girdis by emailing [email protected] or calling him at 734.395.3534.

Another part of RowOne’s relaunch is filling out a network of independent manufacturer sales rep firms to work directly with the AV integrators/home theater installation companies. Interested firms can contact Girdis by emailing [email protected] or calling 734.395.3534.
