“I am thrilled to join such a strong and well-respected organization with great people, partners and customers,” said Elster. “I look forward to working with the Audio America team to continue growing and expanding our business well into the future.”
“We recently opened a state-of-the-art distribution center in Atlanta, and have dedicated a tremendous amount of human and financial capital to ensure our successful expansion in the southeast,” added Munder. “This dedication is further exemplified with the addition of Jonathan, who has developed extensive customer and vendor relationships over his career.”
