Taylor continued, “The Almo Global Business Team, led by JC Delgado, is based out of Fort Lauderdale, FL and serves both exporters and international partners. JC brings more than 20 years of international sales and business development experience -- his expertise is guiding the growth and development of the Almo Global Business. We look forward to sharing our global expansion strategy with distribution and media partners at the InfoComm opening reception and throughout the show.”
The Almo Global Business Team is an outbound sales team that visits customers throughout the world to understand the unique needs of each geography. Every team member is bilingual in Spanish, Portuguese or both languages.
“We are backed by Almo Corporation, a 70-plus year old company that has a highly-regarded reputation in the U.S. -- we are transferring these values and carrying over the Almo brand at the international level,” explained JC Delgado, director of global sales for Almo Professional A/V. “We are solidifying our relationships with the top customer partners in each vertical market and in every country we reach to become the same reliable source for specialized product, technical expertise, competitive pricing, managed services, training, and unsurpassed customer support outside of the U.S.”
