"We are very pleased to add Jim's skill set and experience to our executive team," stated David Hester, NuVision vice chairman. "He not only has a thorough understanding of the consumer electronics industry, but he is also completely on board with NuVision and our philosophies. It's a great fit and we can't wait to see what we can do together."
McGall was recently sales and marketing VP at Runco International, where he headed up the Vidikron division selling home-theater projectors and flat-panel displays.

"Once I sat down with the team here at NuVision and got to hear about their goals and their plans, I was extremely excited to become part of that," says McGall.

I'm eager to reach out to dealers and installers to show them the exciting things NuVision has to offer."
