Santa Clara, Calif. — Internet video distributor Vudu said it has signed Novidor & Firestone as its authorized independent sales representative for California, Arizona and Nevada, and The Progressive Group as the authorized independent sales representative for Michigan.
The two independent companies have been added to Vudu’s rep firm teams selling the company’s set-top boxes and service across the country.
“Given the incredibly fast market acceptance of Vudu, and overwhelming dealer demand, I cannot think of better rep firms than Novidor & Firestone and The Progressive Group to bring our product and brand to their respective markets,” stated Mark Donnigan, Vudu national dealer channel manager. “The two companies will succeed with our product because they bring a high level of knowledge, passion and commitment to new technology.”
A rep firm on the West Coast, Novidor & Firestone said it has represented and sold top brands since 1981. “We are pleased to have been selected to represent one of the most exciting CI products we’ve seen in years,” said Glen O’Brien, Novidor & Firestone president. “Our industry thrives on introducing products which are leading edge, exciting, engaging and, most importantly, profitable.”
The Progressive Group is a leader in the sale of innovative digital products in Michigan.
“As independent sales representatives and members of the Digital Delivery Group, Progressive Sales is committed to being the leading source for sales and education of digital systems and convergence products,” said Dave Russell, The Progressive Group president. “In today’s competitive climate, dealers are looking for products that differentiate, and Vudu is a product that clearly separates a specialist dealer from one selling commodities on price.”
