Cypress, C.A.– FOR-A America announced that it has promoted its northeast sales manager, Jay Shinn, to vice president of the company. Shinn first joined For-A in August 2012 to head the company’s sales activity in the northeastern U.S., including states from Maine to Virginia. An industry vet with extensive experience in the broadcast technology industry, Shinn will begin his new role immediately.
“Jay has proven himself to be a hardworking, highly valued part of the For-A team,” said Hiro Tanoue, president of For-A America. “We’re confident that he’ll go above and beyond in his new position as vice president, just as he did as an account manager.”
As vice president, Shinn will work closely with Tanoue to oversee all sales and marketing activities in both North America and Latin America. All For-A regional sales managers will now report to Shinn.
“I really enjoy working with customers, and I’m excited to be further involved in relationship building with our existing customers, potential clients and business partners,” said Shinn. “For-A has had a long history of developing value products for video professionals and broadcasters, and I’m looking forward to continuing to build brand awareness of the feature rich yet affordable products that we offer.”
Shinn will continue to be based out of For-A’s Fort Lee, N.J., office. He can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
