AVAD's Whinna to Retire
AVAD's co-founder and executive vice president of sales and marketing, Wally Whinna, will retire from the distributor at the end of this year, the company announced Monday.
In addition to his work with AVAD, which was founded in 1997, Whinna has been an active member of CEDIA for more than 20 years.
“Without question, AVAD would not be in the leading position it is today without the services of Wally,” the company's vice president and general manager of AVAD, Jim Annes, said as part of the announcement. "Wally has built a strong sales and marketing team at AVAD, and is a trusted adviser to me personally. We cannot thank Wally enough for his years of commitment and dedication in helping AVAD to succeed.”
