DNAV Strengthens Sales and Business Development Structure

DNAV, a full-service systems integrator and manufacturer’s representative specializing in broadcast, audio-visual and public safety systems, has hired a sales and business development leader to manage current accounts and drive future business growth.

Brian Walker is taking the role of National Sales Manager.

He’ll be based near Seattle, and is responsible for all North American business. He reports to DNAV principal executives Daniel Hyatt and Nick Straka.

As DNAV explains, Hyatt and Straka have been responsible for a large part of the company’s sales initiatives. Walker’s appointment frees them to focus on the company’s expanding schedule of design and integration projects, which include TV and radio facilities.

Walker will also work with the principal executives to build the company’s manufacturer’s representative side of the business, which today includes Sierra Automated Systems, a manufacturer of studio consoles, mixers and Audio over IP routing systems for broadcast and AV facilities.

“DNAV’s growth trajectory has taken the company into exciting places as a full-service dealer, installer and technical services provider,” Hyatt said. “Brian’s sales experience, customer relationship skills, industry contacts and business leadership qualities will allow us to more effectively coalesce our vision as a company and establish a strong foundation for continued business growth.”

Brian joins DNAV from Sennheiser, where he took on roles of increasing responsibility over his eight years with company.

“To succeed in broadcast and AV sales, it’s necessary to understand the processes and dynamics of the business you represent,” Walker said. “I have worked closely with integration teams to source products for complex installations on short notice, and manage customer relationships to ensure that their needs are addressed with speed and accuracy. These experiences, along with the ability to offer technical support, recognize industry trends and develop strategic initiatives to meet customer requirements, will allow me to effectively service current DNAV accounts and help Daniel and Nick grow the business.”
