Fliss, who brings with him extensive experience in the Pro AV field,  joins Magenta from RT Com, where he served as General Manager. Prior to that, he was Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Aurora Multimedia Corp.

“We are very excited to welcome Andy on board,” said Magenta President John Dace. “His expertise in forecasting sales, managing independent reps and developing new business will help spark a major expansion of Magenta business in the U.S. market.”

Fliss, who reports directly to Dace, added, “Having been in the AV industry for more than 15 years, I’m very familiar with Magenta’s products and their reputation for quality. I’m looking forward to driving sales of Magenta’s proven MultiView and Mondo Matrix Cat 5-based products, as well as the company’s innovative Voyager Series of fiber-optic based extension, distribution and switching products.”

Also reporting to Dace is Director of Marketing Patricia Booher, a veteran of 20 years in professional AV and consumer electronics.
