HTE APPOINTS SUTHERLAND AV MARKETING AS DISTRIBUTOR FOR THE AMERICAS


Carrè, ITALY, —October 2017—HOME THEATRE ENVIRONMENT (HTE), renowned throughout Europe for their gorgeous customized entertainment environments designed and manufactured in Italy, is expanding their presence within The Americas.

Todd Sutherland brings over 20 years' experience in the luxury, high-end segment of the industry. Over his career, he has worked directly for a handful of the premier manufacturers, and is known to bring differentiated products, professionalism, integrity, and valuable technical product knowledge to top-tier Custom Integrators in the market.

"I am excited to represent HTE to the top integrators in the U.S., and across all of The Americas," says Todd Sutherland. "They may have had little or no exposure to the HTE products to date, but should be prepared for an extremely compelling and unique range of options to bring their clients, and designers. I have been in far too many acoustically treated theaters in my career that felt claustrophobic and uncomfortable. During my time at Wisdom Audio, we worked hand-in-hand with Maurizio Conti and his team at HTE to deliver some outstanding CEDIA Expo demonstrations. The Italian designs were huge hits with integrators, but the customized acoustic treatments cleverly hidden beneath those stunning interiors played an absolutely huge role in transporting everyone inside to an immersive experience that was both captivating and amazingly comfortable and livable. When Maurizio approached me with this opportunity to work together, I didn't hesitate."

"We are delighted to see Todd create his own distribution company, and look forward to working with him to bring HTE into the mindshare of the top integrators in the U.S. and across The Americas. Todd is highly respected by dealers and we are committed to giving him the tools and support he needs to succeed. His extensive experience will be key to helping us plant seeds for the growth of HTE business in these markets, says Maurizio Conti, President, HTE.

The HTE approach is considerably different, arising from 30 years of experience.
