DBL Veterans Launch New Distributor
A pair of veterans of DBL Distributing are preparing to launch a new consumer electronics distributor, focused on serving smaller independent retailers, the company's president told Dealerscope Friday.
Bruce Kuperman, who was DBL's vice president of sales prior to his departure in May, and his partner Michael Balaskovits, who was DBL's senior vice president of operations until the time of its takeover by Ingram Micro, are the two cofounders of Direct Distributing, Inc., which will officially launch on Sept. 15. Kuperman is the company's president while Balaskovits is the COO and CFO.
Kuperman told Dealerscope that the company's core products will include Bluetooth, gaming products, computer accessories, mobile phone accessories, headphones, batteries, portable audio and video accessories, cables, and the gadget-protection technology being pioneered by Wrapsol.
