The EDGE Distributors Group Appoints Ron Harker as Executive Director

ron-harker_new-edge-director-headshot.JPGFort Wayne, IN – August 4, 2009 – The EDGE Distributors Group — a rapidly growing service-oriented group of 12 independently owned regional distributors catering primarily to custom install and residential systems integrators – today announced the appointment of Ron Harker as Executive Director.

Harker is veteran of the consumer electronics industry. He began his career in 1987 with Highland Appliance and went on to work for retailers Sound Pro and Classic Stereo.

In 1993, Harker made the move to CTD Marketing, an EDGE-member distribution company with locations in Indiana and Kentucky. During his more than 16-year span with CTD, he worked his way through the ranks to sales manager, VP/partner and ultimately in 2006, to president. Harker most recently served on The EDGE Group’s board of directors, as well as on rep councils for LG and Denon.

“I am excited about this opportunity with EDGE, and look forward to bringing programs to the group that build value for the members and manufacturers alike,? says Harker, adding, ?While current economic conditions have forced many companies to cut back and pull sales people off the streets, EDGE is maintaining — and in many instances, bolstering — its presence and programs.?

Harker will be attending the upcoming CEDIA expo and invites manufacturers to contact him and learn how EDGE can help them to reach their sales goals. Harker can be reached at ronh@edgegroup.org or via phone at 260-432-6482.
