Weiner had been the marketing and operations manager for VANA and brings a wealth of high-performance audio industry experience to her new role with the organization. Weiner was appointed to the position by the late Stephen DeFuria, along with the ownership group at VANA. Weiner has dedicated much of her life to high-performance audio, having participated in the launch of more than 75 significant consumer electronics products during her career as a respected industry consultant. She brings project management, technical (in both acoustics and electronics), and financial experience specific to the audio industry to the company, and will take charge of establishing sales goals, marketing, vendor relations, hiring, training, and management of the team including a new national sales manager. Most critically, she will be in charge of creating and implementing a vision for the company, maintaining and growing VANA’s stable of audio brands sold through the U.S. that include Audio Physic Loudspeakers from Germany, European Audio Team Turntables from Vienna, Okki Nokki Record Cleaning Machines from the Netherlands, and Primare Electronics from Sweden. “Our goal from the start has been to function as more than a distributor—to be recognized as a fully operational North American arm of the brands we have partnered with while becoming a trusted resource for dealers, reps, and consumers,” Weiner said. “VANA is well on the way to achieving this goal, and I look forward to using expertise amassed over the last 36 years to lead our team and continue to foster VANA’s positive impact on the performance audio marketplace in the U.S.” SubscribeFor more stories like this, and to keep up to date with all our market leading news, features and analysis, sign up to our newsletter here.
