Movers and Shakers: DOW Electronics Hires Two Industry Experts

Enhances Push to Distribute Connected Home Products

Published Wednesday, September 3, 2014

TAMPA – DOW Electronics announced last week that Mike Barcia and Seth Halstead have joined the company to further grow its 12volt customer and vendor base. Mike Barcia and Seth Halstead both come with a wealth of experience within the industry. Barcia spent the last ten years at Maximum Audio and Video in Tampa, FL where he oversaw the purchasing, marketing, and sales of the 12volt department.


Under the direction of Barcia, Maximum Audio and Video ultimately achieved Mobile Electronics Magazine’s Top 50 Retailer of the year award in ’12,’13, and ’14. Halstead brings 10 years of 12volt passion and experience, having successfully managed Audio Electronics’ Indianapolis store for the past eight years. 


Mike Barcia joins DOW Electronics as 12volt Strategic Sales Manager and Seth Halstead as 12volt Inside Sales/Systems Engineer. Barcia and Halstead look to continue DOW Electronics’ recent success providing best in class products and services to 12volt dealers across its nine state Southeast territory. Barcia states, “Being a part of the DOW 12volt Team provides me the opportunity to grow in my career and allows me to meet and assist 12volt enthusiasts just like myself.” Halstead adds, “It is exciting to be a part of DOW Electronics’ expansion and growth in the 12volt industry. I am excited to be able to share and utilize my retail knowledge, experience, and expertise with DOW’s new and existing 12volt dealers.”


“With these new additions, DOW adds more industry expertise and draws more inspiration from a retailer’s perspective. DOW believes these factors will strengthen an already industry recognized team,” stated Drew Fisher, Director of Sales. “Winning the Distributor of the Year award from Mobile Electronics, shows that DOW is moving in the right direction, but this is just the beginning. We believe Mike and Seth will take the customer service experience to levels never seen in this industry before.”
