Liberty Wire & Cable Enjoys Growing Demand For Its Connectivity Solutions Despite Recession

Promotes James Blumhardt to VP, Sales, and Names Industry Vets Kevin Peterman and Tom O’Hanlon as Territory Managers to Further Strengthen Sales

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO, March 19, 2009 — Liberty Wire & Cable, worldwide supplier of a broad range of wire and cable products for the audio/video trade, amid growing demand for its wire and cable products and services, has announced the promotion of James Blumhardt to Vice President of Sales for the Eastern Region, and the appointment of two A/V industry veterans, Kevin Peterman and Tom O’Hanlon, as Commercial Territory Managers.

The changes reflect growing demand for Liberty’s vast array of wire and cable products, solutions and services, despite the recession, and its efforts to position itself for further growth. “Liberty is making strategic investments in the A/V marketplace that will provide our customers with top-notch sales professionals as a resource to help build their businesses,? said Liberty President John Dace. Liberty products are part of the infrastructure of projects large and small. Many are prone to over wire to future proof their investments, while taking advantage of solutions that provide significant labor savings and job site efficiencies.

“Because of their infrastructure nature wire and cable products are better situated to ride out an economic recession in both the commercial and residential sectors,“ added Kirk Horlbeck, Liberty’s Senior Vice President for Corporate Marketing. “On the residential side, wires and cables are among the few products that are part of the mortgage. On the commercial side, bandwidth often has to be built in before other aspects of a project are completed.?
