The Marshank Sales team.Wilsonville, OR (May 13, 2008)–Audix Corporation has named Los Angeles, CA-based Marshank Sales as the winner of its Top Producer Award for 2007.
Audix national sales manager, Gene Houck, says, “In a market where some pundits are saying, ‘Flat is the new up,’ we are proud of the double-digit growth we experienced in 2007. Gary Marshank and crew have consistently been a major part of our growth, and last year shined with an 18 percent sales increase with their independent dealers. From their friendly and efficient office staff to each sales associate, the Marshank Team continues to demonstrate that their reputation for professionalism is accurate and well deserved.”
Marshank Sales is one of the oldest rep firms in the audio industry. Founded by David Marshank (Gary’s grandfather) in 1920, Marshank sales began representing electronic components and radio parts. Today, Marshank Sales represents products in the MI, Systems Integration and Pro Sound/Touring markets in southern California, southern Nevada and Arizona.
Gary Marshank states, “With the recent addition of Paul Hugo, Marshank Sales is expanding further into the Systems Integration and Pro Sound/Touring markets. Paul has an extensive industry background and brings his energy and experience to our contracting and pro sound customers. We have also added Chris Gagon to our team. Chris grew up in the industry and will be working with our MI retail partners.”
Marshank concludes, “Over the last couple of years, we have doubled our staff and coverage. We bring a value-added service to both our manufacturing partners and dealers. We feel that our trainings and clinics are second to none, and the growth we’ve shown is a result of our attention to detail and the extra effort we give.”
