Stampede Appoints Brian Dietz To The Position Of Vice President Of Sales In Its Direct Response Group

Moving strategically to further develop business opportunities for its vendor partners in the consumer electronics channel, Stampede Presentation Products, Inc., North America’s largest value-added distributor of ProAV solutions, today announced the appointment of Brian Dietz to the position of Vice President of Sales, Direct Response Group. According to Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly, to whom Dietz reports, the appointment is effective immediately.

“Stampede is committed to developing business opportunities for our vendor partners in every channel where AV products and systems are sold, and that increasingly includes the consumer electronics channel which has seen and will continue to see a blurring of the line that has traditionally separated professional from consumer AV,” Kelly emphasized today.

According to Kelly, Dietz brings more than 35 years of senior consumer electronics sales experience to his new position at Stampede. “Our goal is to cover absolutely every area of the AV industry and to serve our manufacturers by developing sustainable incremental sales from every vertical market. With the addition of Brian to our team, I have no doubt that we will be able to create new business for our existing partners, secure new vendor partners looking to benefit from our expertise and significantly expand the size of the overall market for ProAV solutions throughout the consumer market.”

Prior to joining the sales team at Stampede, Dietz worked at M. Rothman & Company, Inc. from 1997-2012, where he served as the Vice President of Sales for the New Jersey-based consumer electronics distributor. Prior to this, he held the position of Director of Sales for the East Coast Zone at Sharp Electronics from 1987-1997. After graduating from Long Island University in 1973, Dietz spent the next seven years serving as the Regional Sales Manager of the East Coast Zone for JVC.

“I’m very excited to be joining Stampede as they continue to expand their already-dominant presence in the ProAV industry,” said Dietz. “I have more than 35 years of sales experience in the consumer electronics industry and I know that I have the knowledge and enthusiasm that will help Stampede accelerate its rate of growth in this market segment.”
