Bryston Appoints Director of Sales, U.S.

Peterborough, ON-based Bryston has appointed Dave Kakenmaster as Director of Sales, U.S. This position will complement existing sales infrastructure for Bryston and provide enhanced service and support for U.S. dealers. 

Based in Denver, CO, Kakenmaster has prior sales experience with respected brands like Polk Audio, Definitive Technology, GoldenEar Technology, and others. In this new position, he will work in conjunction with the Bryston team and report to CEO James Tanner, who recently acquired Bryston following the untimely passing of its former president, Brian Russell.  

“I have long had respect and admiration for Bryston since purchasing a 4B amplifier for personal use back in 1979,” says Kakenmaster. “Bryston’s dedication to excellence, innovation, performance and value make this an exciting opportunity for me, and I look forward to working alongside their existing dealer network while also creating increased visibility for the Bryston brand across the U.S.”
