According to Rob Ziv, director of business development for Almo Professional A/V, “Maureen started with Almo Pro A/V one year ago as part of the inside sales group and became a valued resource for our partners and manufacturers, while earning her CTS certification.” He continued, “Her proven technical abilities and drive for continued professional development fit well with the BDM directive and enable her to apply the latest business, sales and technical techniques to every project.”

As a BDM for Almo Professional A/V, Maureen is responsible for coordinating sales and marketing efforts and delivering technical training for Samsung consumer displays and accessories and the Planar Systems direct-view indoor LED products. She has an extensive background in various operations roles. In addition to having a Bachelor of Science in education from Springfield College, Maureen is an InfoComm Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) and a Digital Signage Certified Expert (DSCE).

During CEDIA and E4, Maureen is providing demonstrations of Samsung’s The Frame. Available in 55- and 65-inch models, The Frame offers an art mode feature, which allows the TV’s screen to display exclusive works of art ranging from paintings to images from personal photo libraries. When powered on, The Frame offers UHD picture quality, and when powered off, The Frame becomes a customizable work of art with frame options to enhance the ambiance and décor of any room. The Frame can be mounted on the wall just like a picture frame or painting without messy cables, making it a complete package for the living space. To view a demo of The Frame, click here.
