VANA has hired Stephen Libin as national sales manager effective Monday, July 3. Libin brings extensive experience and industry relationships to VANA after having been immersed in the high-performance audio arena, including six years at Totem Acoustic as national sales manager. Libin, who will be reporting to managing director Nancy Weiner, will be based in Southern California, extending Northeast-based VANA's presence on the West Coast.
Libin will be leveraging 30 years of AV manufacturing, wholesaling, and retailing, including a key role in launching a rep firm in California and founding a boutique hi-fi store in Calgary, Canada.
“I am truly excited for the opportunity to represent such a beautiful stable of premium brands,” Libin said. “I looked closely at Audio Physic loudspeakers, European Audio Team (EAT) turntables, Okki Nokki record cleaning machines, and Primare Electronics—these are high-quality products from established brands with integrity. I am also thrilled to join Nancy Weiner and the rest of the VANA team.”
“Stephen’s broad range of experience in performance audio will enable him to expand VANA’s distribution and increase sales across all of our premium brands,” Weiner said. “We feel very fortunate to have added a seasoned veteran—someone with a well rounded skill set and depth of understanding pertaining to audio that our reps, existing dealers, and new prospects will appreciate.”
Libin will be working the VANA suite at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest October 6-8 in Denver, CO, showcasing an array of new products including live demonstrations.
