This designation is the most recent update in a long history of excellence involving Michael and Dan, who have been named on the Top 100 Executives list every year since 2008 and have won other accolades such as an ADL Torch of Liberty Award, and induction into the Dealerscope Hall of Fame for the success of D&H’s retail and consumer electronics business. These two executives were also featured for numerous years on the CRN Top Sales Leaders list, and were named number one on the limited-run CRN SMB Super Stars list.
Vice President of Marketing Jenn Walcott – The Channel Company’s Woman of the Week: Jenn Walcott was selected as a “Woman of the Week,” part of a podcast series hosted by CRN’s publisher, The Channel Company.

Key Accounts Sales Manager Lindsay Robertson Lubeskie – Dealerscope magazine’s 40 Under 40 list: Lindsay was named to this cover feature, which recognizes up-and-coming leaders in the retail and consumer electronics business who are driving the industry forward. In honoring this year’s winners, Dealerscope made the following statement: “Never in the history of the consumer technology industry has the dynamism and energy of its members counted more than in the past year and a half.” Lubeskie’s skills and wide breadth of contacts as an account manager have earned D&H notable connections in the technology manufacturer community.
