Matt Palumbo did a great job and I learned how dealers in the territory can utilize AudioControl products to grow their business. There were over 30 dealers at the meeting and it was also a great networking opportunity for me” Helms related to

Helms was on the road on Monday, January 27th and made a sales call at Audio Acoustics in Durham North Carolina. Richard Burgner stated “ Good to see Reece in our store.

AudioControl and Shiflet & Dickson Off to a Fast Start in 2020

GASTONIA, NC (01.23.2020) – Shiflet & Dickson hosted dealers for an AudioControl training session on Monday evening, January 20th, at the company’s facility in Gastonia NC. Matt Palumbo, AudioControl’s National Trainer, flew in from Seattle to conduct the training.

David Holland, Shiflet & Dickson GM, stated “We had about 30 people in the audience for Matt’s training. He not only thoroughly covered the technical aspects of products in the AudioControl line but gave dealers a number of sales pointers that they can use on the sales floor back in their stores. Several dealers came from over a couple hours away and they were definitely rewarded for their trip.”

Matt Palumbo (L) and Dennis Montgomery set to kick off the Shiflet & Dickson Training meeting.

Palumbo related “We trained the audience members at Shiflet & Dickson on the entire AudioControl lineup as well as a focus on new products like our LC1i and LC2iPRO, ACX Series all-weather amplifiers, new 5-channel amplifier as well as the game changing DM-RTA. Audience members were definitely in tune and asked a lot of real world questions.”

Holland added “We had a meeting in the AudioControl booth at CES. While there Matt took me through the line. In our discussions in the booth I mentioned we had not had an AudioControl training in a while. Just 10 days after CES 2020 concluded we had an AudioControl training at our facility. That’s getting after it and we appreciate the very quick action to get 2020 off to a fast start with Audio Control.”
