The PowerHouse Alliance 13 distributor members assembled in Pittsburgh for their ninth year as a distributor alliance during their sixth annual national sales meeting alongside over 30 vendor partners. The three-day sales meeting included vendor meetings, one-on-one distributor discussions and unique team activities to refocus group goals as they prepare for CEDIA in September.
A keynote address from NFL veteran Chris Hoke, who spent his eleven-year professional career as a defensive lineman with the Pittsburgh Steelers, kicked off the annual sales meeting. The former athlete made connections between the struggles he faced as a professional in the NFL to those in the world of business and sales. Hoke encouraged the regional distributors to take advantage of every opportunity that comes their way in each aspect of their business and to continue looking for innovative ways to grow and prosper in their individual regions.
“This is a very special time of year for our members,” said PowerHouse Alliance Executive Director Dennis Holzer. “Our annual sales meeting is where our regional distributor members come together to discuss new vendors, new products, performance, sales objectives, additions to our house brand, A2V, and training initiatives with vendors and other members. Because our members are all over the country, it is vital for us to meet in person and discuss strategies and goals for CEDIA, the rest of the year and objectives we want to accomplish in 2019.”
