WyreStorm continued its aim of strengthening its position in the pro AV sector with the addition of two new sales managers, Jason Nipper and Michael Almasy.
In his new role as director of sales Eastern Region, Nipper is tasked with developing WyreStorm’s pro AV business with strategic sales growth through regional sales channels and driving brand awareness within the sector. With almost a decade of industry experience, Nipper comes to WyreStorm from a biometric technology solutions provider, where he served as vice president of sales and business development. Prior to that, he served as regional sales manager for Knox Video Technologies, a provider of AV solutions in the bar and restaurant market.
“Jason has a real passion for the brands he represents, which translates into an exceptional attention to the details and a laser focus on the needs of his customers,” said Hal Truax, WyerStorm’s vice president of sales and marketing. “He has demonstrated this time and again, going above and beyond for his customers. We are excited to have Jason on board to help with the continued growth of the WyreStorm brand.”
Almasy joins WyreStorm as an industry veteran with more than 30 years of experience in data communications, network system integration, and AV. Highly skilled at building sales teams and maximizing company sales potential, Almasy possesses an understanding of the ever-changing nature of technology and the marketplace. As founder and president of Princeton Network Systems, Almasy ran the network systems integration provider for Microsoft and Novell networks, specializing in LAN and WAN network support services. He has also served in senior sales management roles for Raritan Computer, Magenta Research, and SVSI, where he led organizational restructuring efforts that resulted in significant sales growth and increased market share.
“WyreStorm is a leader in AV signal distribution with much expertise in the evolving AV over IP technologies,” Almasy said. “I am looking forward to helping WyreStorm enter new markets. The future is very bright!”
“Michael’s value to the organization cannot be overstated—his experience leading sales teams and his understanding of the market really is second to none,” Truax said. “We are fortunate to be able to draw from the extensive knowledge, experience, and contacts he has amassed throughout his career as we look to grow the company, especially in the pro AV sector.
