DBL customers shouldn’t expect any immediate changes now that Ingram Micro has bought the CE and accessories distributor. But a big change will come next June when David Lorsch, who started the company 18 years ago and is well known throughout the industry for his hands-on approach and down-to-earth character, will retire after he leads the company through the transition.
The news was bittersweet for loyal DBL customers.
“Even though he is CEO of the company, you can always call him in his office; you can call the boss direct,” said Lazer Werzburger, a camcorder buyer at B&H Photo and Video in New York City. “I love working with DBL. It was a very easy company to work with; great shipping and good inventory.”
