Industry Veteran & Accomplished Employee Promoted
Hampton, NJ – August 24, 2010 – Kramer Electronics USA, a worldwide supplier of audio, video, computer graphics signal distribution, switching and processing equipment for the broadcast, production, security, education and ProAV presentation markets, announced that it has promoted Michael Lewis as its new Vice President of National Accounts.
Lewis has a long history of association with Kramer Electronics. Mike spent 15 years at Comprehensive Video Supply in New Jersey selling cables and Kramer Products, and then spent the next 6 years selling cables for CompuCable before joining Kramer as Regional Sales Manager of the western region in 2003. For 4 years, Mike was consistently one of Kramer’s top performers in regional sales before being promoted to National Accounts Manager. As National Accounts Manager for the past 3 years, Lewis has increased sales to Kramer’s several large accounts with multiple locations across the U.S., at a higher growth rate than the average double-digit growth rate Kramer has enjoyed for the last 12 of 13 years.
Mike Lewis has been an integral part of Kramer’s ongoing success, resulting in his newly deserved promotion to Vice President of National Accounts. Within this new position, Lewis will be responsible for managing a group of sales personnel tasked with continuing to grow Kramer’s National Accounts business at a rapid rate, as well as building and actively promoting Kramer’s ever-expanding line-up of cable, wall plate and table box products through all levels of distribution. Along with his Kramer team, Lewis is confident that he can uncover new opportunities, not only directly related to cable products but opportunities within the A/V marketplace as a whole, ensuring the continuation of Kramer’s success.
Dave Bright, President of Kramer Electronics USA, states that “Mike is the perfect choice with his many years of cable knowledge and experience prior to joining the Kramer family. Furthermore, I am very proud to have Mike join our Kramer sales management team. He is one of the purest salesmen I have ever had the pleasure of working with. At Kramer, much of our success is the result of relationship selling…and Mike is the master at that. His great work ethic and the always positive attitude he brings to his job every day is what makes him so successful. I am sure Mike will continue to excel in his new position.”
Mike Lewis grew up in Rockland County, New York. He attended Clarkstown South High School in New York, graduated from Rockland Community College with an Associate’s Degree in Business Management, and currently resides in Wake County, North Carolina.
