We are proud to be part of this fantastic event for International Women's Day. Especially since our company was built by VPI founder Harry and Sheila Weisfeld, but everyone knew Sheila kept the office and customer service going while Harry was on the floor designing and building turntables! Sheila Weisfeld was very active in the Girl Scouts and was a "Trainer of Trainers". She traveled internationally to be part of Girl Scouts events and activities to help create educational opportunities to build strong women!
We lost Sheila/Mom to cancer but keep her memory alive through VPI and our continued dedication to our customers and any opportunity to give back to the community.
Years later we know mom would be proud to have our Plink Player part of this fundraisers for WAGGS!
Thanks to Renaissance Audio for putting this together!
We are excited for International Women's Day! Especially since so many strong women have helped build and continue to keep VPI going. This first shoutout goes to our passes Office worker and Grandma, Shirley Greene.
Meet Shirleyshe is a VPI icon. For over 30 years Shirley along with VPI Founder Sheila, were the first voices you would hear when calling VPI. Shirley would handle customer service phone calls, small parts/assembly, PO's, and filing. Even when she was 92 she still popped by from time to time to make sure everyone was staying on their toes!
Meet Jane, VPI Office Manager. Jane originally came on part-time but immediately started to organize and improve efficiency in the office. Jane unintentionally followed the foot steps of VPI Founder Sheila Weisfeld (Sheila/Mom would be very proud!) Jane handles the organization of VPI purchase orders, accounting, and process shipping out products. Jane has also improved relations with our Asian market by being bi-lingual and able to communicate better with our distributors and Asian customers.
Two children later, Jane is still the heart of the VPI office and keeping us moving forward on our day to day!
Meet Claire, our VPI Operation's Manager. Claire has helped raise the bar on efficiency and customer service. She manages our inventory and supplies as well as communicates with all of our vendors. She was also instrumental in coordinating and delivering PPE supplies to hospitals during the height of COVID-19. Claire is also an audiophile outside of VPI and loves spinning her music! Shout out to Claire on National Women Day.
Meet our Floor Manager Carla who leads and guides our production team in build our quality turntables. Besides managing the production she personally is part of the build of our Direct Drive and Prime 21 turntables. We are proud to have her leading the team!
