L-ACOUSTICS US has formally recognized Western Audio Sales as its 2004 Rep of the Year. The announcement came from Paul Freudenberg, L-ACOUSTICS US vice president of sales and marketing, who recently presented the firm with an award.

Charged with the loudspeaker manufacturer's Southern California territory, Western Audio Sales is headquartered in Costa Mesa and under the direction of Mike Klickstein who founded the firm in 1978.

Freudenberg notes that it was outside sales employee Dave Weidenhoffer who really clinched the award for Klickstein's company. "Dave's dedication to both his customers and L-ACOUSTICS is exemplary," he says. "He is constantly generating fresh ideas to promote our products and new ways in which to meet customer needs. Consequently, we are very pleased to be able to recognize him and the rest of the Western Audio crew for their outstanding performance and sales throughout 2004."
