AV Stumpfl, the Austrian AV technology manufacturer, establishes an affiliate in the USA.
The new American AV Stumpfl headquarters will be based in Atlanta and will be supported by a nationwide network of distributors, dealers and technology specialists. This is the first time that the family-owned company has established an official subsidiary in the USA with direct ties to the Austrian parent company. Managing director will be Todd Liedahl.
“The establishment of AV Stumpfl Inc. is a new chapter in our company’s history. Todd is without doubt the perfect choice for the role of managing director”, explained Fabian Stumpfl, AV Stumpfl CEO.
“Although our products are already well known in the US market, we feel that there is still a lot of growth potential for both our projection screen and media server systems. The USA as a whole is obviously of major importance as a trendsetter territory. Professionals from all over the world look to the US for the latest technological trends in the AV and entertainment industries. With the new AV Stumpfl Inc. presence, we will be able to support our US distribution partners and customers in a more direct and efficient way.”
Todd Liedahl brings over 25 years of experience from the rental and staging market to his new role at AV Stumpfl USA. His diverse background in sales and operations leadership gives him a unique ability to develop all aspects of the US organisation effectively. Liedahl’s hospitality spirit drives him to provide the best solutions available while also ensuring an outstanding service experience.
“I am absolutely thrilled to be joining AV Stumpfl, a company that strives to make a superior product and succeeds in doing so”, said Todd. “I look forward to helping to grow the business in North America as well as introducing exciting new products to the market. The second half of 2018 will be particularly interesting for US customers, due to a number of activities we are currently planning to promote innovative screen and media server products.”
