November 2012: St. Louis, Mo. – Ray Kroc, founder of McDonalds once said, “You are only as good as the people you hire.” The Sound Room, a St. Louis-based home technology retailer, echoes Kroc’s sentiments by announcing the addition of two new Electronic System Designers—both with extensive home technology backgrounds. The new arrivals, which mark their fourth and fifth new hires this year, continue the company’s mission of bringing the finest home technology solutions that can’t be found at your everyday big-box store.
Dale Nester – With over 20 years of electronics integration under his belt, Nester brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to an already well-rounded staff. Nester, a St. Louis-native, owned and operated an integration company in Las Vegas, NV, designing and installing home theaters and home automation systems for famous Hollywood stars, professional athletes, casino owners and entrepreneurs.
Jim Kuhlmeyer – A lifelong Saint Lousian, Kuhlmeyer began his career in 1984 as a Sales Associate at Goedeker’s Super Store where he was regularly recognized for his achievements in both sales and customer service. After 17 years with Goedeker’s, Kuhlmeyer took his talents to Ultimate Electronics where he helped design and implement a wide-range of integrated systems.
Through their commitment to excellence and growth, The Sound Room has been able to thrive in a market where many home technology stores have been forced to close their doors. Their strategy, which has been in place since 1983, has paid off making them the 28th largest integrator by revenue in the country, according to CE Pro magazine.
“It is no secret that our industry has went through several changes over the last few years, forcing many of our competitors to either downsize or close up all together,” said David Young, founder of The Sound Room. “We have been able to not only ride the storm, but grow our business through a strong emphasis on customer service and high-end products. The way we see the market place is quite simple: quality service and products never go out of style.”
