AV industry veteran with 15-plus years of experience is appointed to spearhead the company’s sales efforts across the US and Canada

Today, Planar, a global leader in visualization technology, announced the promotion of Tani Klein to senior vice president of North America Sales. Transitioning from his recent role as vice president of sales, Northeast, Klein will now oversee all of the company’s geographic territories and vertical market teams across the US and Canada.

Klein’s promotion follows years of demonstrated sales leadership and involvement in key milestones for the company. This includes helping execute new sales strategies as well as expand Planar’s customer base in the metro New York and Philadelphia regions. He joined Planar in 2014, first serving as a regional account manager before being promoted to director of sales, senior director of sales and vice president of sales for the Northeast territory.

“Throughout his time at Planar, Tani has played an instrumental role in the growth of the company’s revenue, customer relationships and quality of service,” said Zach Zhang, president and CEO at Planar. “He is a dedicated sales professional and solutions-oriented team player who exhibits the qualities and well-rounded expertise our sales organization needs. I look forward to seeing him build on the impressive leadership he’s demonstrated to-date.”

Klein’s background is strengthened by nearly six years at Primeview, where he covered responsibilities ranging from technical to sales and operations. He opened the company’s first US office, significantly contributing to the growth of the organization’s sales force and revenue.

“I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to lead the company’s sales efforts across North America,” said Tani Klein, senior vice president of North America Sales at Planar. “Planar delivers state-of-the-art display innovations and unmatched services, but as I approach my tenth year with the company, what really stands out to me is our people. We have a remarkable organization that goes above and beyond to help our customers. With exciting developments on the horizon, I have every confidence that this exceptionally talented team will continue to ensure that our customers and company flourish.”
