David Mann – Customer Service, Sales, and Operations
Sales Area: DC, MD, VA & Southern DE
ACE was founded in 1987. J. David Mann III took 100 percent ownership in 1989. As a self-professed audio person and gearhead who bought his first stereo at age 12 and built his first pair of speakers at age 17, David was well-prepared for the journey that lay ahead.
David grew up in Washington, D.C., and majored in business at Indiana University. He brought more than 15 years of industry experience to ACE, having previously worked as a vice president at Paramount Distributors, as vice president of manufacturers’ representative The David H. Brothers Co. and vice president of specialty retailer Public Phone Stores.
David was an electronics buyer for the Washington area’s largest department-store chain, Woodward & Lothrop, as well as a sales manager for Delta Sales. David works directly with customers in Washington, Maryland, Virginia, and southern Delaware. He manages all day-to-day operations at ACE.
David’s passion for auto racing is keenly expressed in the ACE Marketing Group logo, with the articulated, forward-facing “A” representing acceleration and advancement.
