BROOKINGS, S.D. – Apr. 15, 2020 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, announces the hiring of Matt Evers as AV Systems Sales Representative. The move expands the company's focus on the AV integrator market for LED video display applications and plays a major role in the realigning of current staff to support an emerging group of partners for this market.

Matt will introduce Daktronics' narrow pixel pitch (NPP) product line to AV integrators and military niche projects in the mid-West and Great Lakes regions of the United States. His responsibilities include product education, sales and installation tips, architect education and project collaboration with AV integrators.

"Matt brings years of Daktronics and industry experience to our AV sales team," said Jim Vasgaard, Daktronics national sales manager for spectacular projects. "Matt started at Daktronics working with sign companies and has been working with Daktronics AV integrators in Asia markets for several years. His ability to develop and support sales partners will benefit the AV integrators he works with. Working in Asia, he's developed unique global product and LED manufacturing knowledge which adds to the dynamic for our team."

With the realignment of staff, Daktronics strengthens a commitment to developing sales partners in the AV integrator niche with an emphasis on product development and delivering an engaging experience through products and services. The company has a long history of more than 40 years of supporting various sales channels including more than 1,000 sign companies around the globe.

"With advances in technology and tighter pixel pitches available, indoor direct-view LED is the fastest growing niche in the LED market," said Evers. "I'm looking forward to using my 18 years of experience to develop and grow business for Daktronics and our AV partners."

Evers has an extensive history working at Daktronics dating back to 2002. This includes his time as commercial sales and, most recently, director of global accounts for the company's Asia Pacific region.
