DANIEL (COSTA) SALOMAO
In 1997, Daniel Costa Salomao—founder and director of Italo Trading—began his Pro Audio career working for Brazilian transducer manufacturer Selenium Loudspeakers. Daniel spent his first year learning the ins-and-outs of the speaker business at Selenium's Brazilian headquarters.
1998 found Daniel moving to the US, opening and managing Selenium's first state-side subsidiary, and becoming an American citizen. Within a few short years, Selenium became a key-player and a well-respected name in the Loudspeaker Industry.
Daniel left Selenium in 2005 and joined B-52 Professional in Los Angeles, California. In less than 18 months, B-52 jumped from 20 international distributors to over 50 worldwide partners, with more than 50% of their sales coming from exports. In late 2007, Mr. Salomao moved to Italy to manage and direct International Sales for Proel SpA.
Two years later, in 2009, Daniel moved to Miami, Florida to capitalize on his personal relationship with key Latin American companies within the Pro Audio Industry, creating Italo Trading, LLC. Mr. Salomao relies upon his degree in International Business, vast experience from living abroad and managing companies on different continents, and his fluency in English, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese to manage the Italo Trading in all Latin America countries.
In July 2010, Italo Trading was hired to restructure Behringer's Latin American distribution. Within three years of starting this partnership with Behringer (the largest Professional Audio manufacturer in the Industry today), Italo Trading doubled their already impressive revenue.
