As part of the agreement, the GDS business will be led in-house by Almo’s sales and service team along with Terry Tollison, Almo’s newest business development manager for the traditional sign market.
Tollison will be on hand to meet partners during the fall leg of Almo’s E4 AV Tour in Boston on Oct. 3 and in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 17. Tollison, who was GDS national sales manager before the Almo-Glantz deal, brings more than 30 years of experience in sales, sign production, manufacturing and leadership positions within the sign industry.
“As a result of this distribution agreement, we are now able to take our leadership and expertise in digital signage directly to the static signage market to help these resellers and integrators incorporate dynamic solutions into their businesses,” said Almo executive vice president and COO Sam Taylor, in a press release announcing the acquisition.
“The addition of Terry to our specialized BDM team will help make this transition smooth and seamless. We intend to support GDS’ customer base in the sign industry with the same high level of service and support that GDS provided in the past,” he said.
