THIEL Audio has appointed two new independent sales rep firms in the state of California.
Clarity Business Group will be covering the southern portion of the state for THIEL, while Rich Jackson will be in charge of northern California.
Rich Jackson founded his agency in January, 2010 and has been servicing the Northern California, Northern Nevada, and Hawaii markets.
“My business model has always been to put my customers first, providing premium, profitable solutions to dealers in my region,” Jackson said, who has worked for a number of independent sales agencies over the years. Jackson was honored by three of his manufacturers in 2011 as their Rep of the Year. “High performance audio has always been my passion, and the THIEL lineup allows me to bring top level products to a vast array of retailers and integrators in my territory.”
Rich Jackson also represents Bryston, Autonomic, James Loudspeakers, Prima Luna and PS Audio.
Clarity Business Group is a manufacturer’s representative and business development organization with over 30 years experience specializing in sales and marketing to the custom audio/video, control, and home/pro entertainment segments of the electronics industry.
“As the marketplace has changed, our organization has placed additional focus on high value, high performance brands,” said Clarity partner Mark Cichowski. “THIEL brings a tremendous heritage and quality to traditional audio products as well as compelling solutions for the custom channel. THIEL is such a positive company and a feel-good brand—I anticipate a mutually successful long term relationship,” Cichowski added. Clarity also represents Arcam, Prima Luna, Autonomic, Salamander and other premium brands.
“We anticipate a great deal of success aligning the THIEL brand with both Rich Jackson and The Clarity Group in their respective territories,” said THIEL’s national sales manager, Brad Paulsen. “These are highly skilled organizations with critical relationships in the marketplace who will present the THIEL brand to the finest retailers and integrators in each region.”
