From our People News page: DNAV announced the addition of Brian Walker as national sales manager for the United States.
He will be based near Seattle and report to principal executives Daniel Hyatt and Nick Straka.
DNAV is a systems integrator and manufacturer’s rep specializing in broadcast, audio-visual and public safety systems.
“Daniel and Nick are responsible for a large part of DNAV’s sales initiatives,” the company wrote in its announcement. “Brian’s appointment frees them to focus on the company’s expanding schedule of design and integration projects, which include TV and radio facilities, houses of worship and networked AV/IT systems for businesses and event venues.”
He’ll also work to build its manufacturer’s representative side of the business. DNAV currently reps Sierra Automated Systems.
Walker most recently was with Sennheiser for eight years. He also has been a TV/radio broadcast engineer and, for 16 years, a sales manager for Professional Video and Tape.
“While Brian brings TV and video experience to DNAV, he notes that audio is his first love and looks forward to growing the SAS brand,” the company stated. “Daniel and Nick were among the first integrators in North America to bring Dante and other networked audio solutions into broadcast facilities.”
