Catalyst AV Distribution Welcomes New Board Member Ron Perron
Catalyst AV has welcomed its newest board member Ron Perron, Owner and President of HCA Distributing.
Perron joins the existing board members of Catalyst AV who serve the residential and professional AV channels; Dan Haight (Pioneer Music Company); Chris Gentile (AHA Distributing) and Executive Director Helge Fischer.
Founding Board Member Wally Whinna (Allnet Distributing) stays on as Special Advisor with the addition of Brett Neiderman (Tech Source Distributors, as an additional Special Advisor). Catalyst AV, which has 27 easy-to-access locations for their dealer/integrator partners throughout the US, is looking forward to the addition of Ron who brings years of experience to the board.
“Having been involved with the board for some time in an advisory capacity, my goals are to continue to assist in building the Catalyst AV brand and to help maximize the group's value to its members and vendor partners,” said Perron.
HCA Distributing was originally the distributing face of Momentum Group Inc, a Colorado Rep Agency. They started distributing products in 1996, and incorporated HCA separately in 2002. The two businesses physically separated in 2005, and have grown from a handful of lines to over 80 with a 2ndlocation opening in 2014 in Salt Lake City.
“The Internet of Things and networking systems in the future are going to increase in complexity for our dealer/integrators. That’s why being a Catalyst AV member is so important," said Perron. "We offer our membership true value with personalized support; more so than the solely web-centric organizations out there. We provide the level of training and one-on-one, face-to-face support that has made Catalyst AV famous and the Catalyst AV members unique.”
