Meet Our Territory Managers! July Edition

One Wednesday each month we are featuring one of our Territory Managers. This month we're introducing you to Larry Lindenauer, Territory Manager of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

Larry is fascinated by the historical significance of his territory, which covers all of New England and New York. “I enjoy going into the small New England towns and discovering the local history that ties into many of the colleges, which are among the oldest in the United States.” 

Born in Brooklyn and graduating with a B.A. in Economics from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, Larry went on to gain valuable sales experience in the publishing and beverage industries for 25 years. “Having worked for industry leaders in other fields, I can confidently say that working for Spectrum continues that trend,” Larry said. 

He believes that product durability is one of Spectrum’s strong selling points. “When I go to schools, they show me purchases from several years back that are still in great condition.” Leading with innovation also keeps Spectrum competitive. Today’s changing educational environments are requiring classrooms to work and flow differently than a decade ago. “With the adoption of common core testing, the need for our charging carts has really taken off,” Larry added. 

He finds that customers appreciate Spectrum’s responsiveness and ability to provide solutions. “I don’t try to put the square peg into the round hole. By going to the schools, Spectrum can innovate as needed. Bringing a sample desk or lectern to the classroom gives the buyer the confidence that they made the correct choice.” 

When he’s not travelling for work, Larry can be found at home in “apple country,” Modena, New York, with Sharon, his wife of 25 years. His two sons attend colleges in New York and Hull, England. As a firm believer in giving back to the community, Larry is a member of his town Zoning Board of Appeals.

Larry Lindenauer, territory manager with Spectrum in the New England region believes that product durability is one of Spectrum’s strongest selling points. “When I go to schools, they show me purchases from several years back that are still in great condition.” 
Mark Dotson, territory manager with Spectrum in the Mid-Atlantic region agreed with this sentiment, stating that “it’s wonderful when demonstrating our products to prospects and customers at tradeshows and they say, ‘We love your products,’ or ‘We have been using Spectrum for years.’ It shows that I represent a reputable and highly regarded c…

New Product: Tablet Locker

We’ve been busy and it doesn’t look like we’ll be taking a break soon! Spectrum’s newest product is the InTouch20 Secure Tablet Locker.


We’re taking a good idea and making it smaller! Adding iPad, eReader or other tablet technology to the curriculum? The InTouch20Secure Tablet Locker is the little cousin to the InTouch40 Tablet Cart and is just the thing for the small classroom. The wire management and numbered slots make organization and charging easy. With the optional Synchronizing Kit, apps can be added and the tablets synchronized. Security, charging and syncing all in a small footprint to fit in the small classroom!


You can look to Spectrum for solutions whether you’re in the market for a lectern, desk and tables, or mobile computing storage and charging carts.

First Wiki Launched Today

WikiWikiWeb, the first wiki or user-editable website, was launched on March 25, 1995 and still is a valuable source of information and sharing.
The concept and development of the “Wiki” came from Ward Cunningham in a hope to create a web page that was quickly editable by the users. In Cunningham’s case, it was to establish and promote an exchange of ideas between programmers within his company.

Cunningham originally was going to call his new platform “QuickWeb,” but later he remembered a Honolulu language term for “fast” used by an airport counter employee. The employee told Cunningham to take the Wiki Wiki Shuttle, a shuttle bus line that runs between the airport's terminals. "Wiki Wiki" is a repeating of "wiki", a Hawaiian language word for fast.

From the “Front Page” of the WikiWikiWeb:

The idea of a “Wiki” may seem odd at first, but dive in and explore its links! The “Wiki” is a composition system; it’s a discussion medium; it’s a repository; it’s a mail syst…
