Jeannette Howe Joins BrandSource as Director of Membership

As the director of membership for BrandSource, Howe will use her many years of industry experience to help the company hit its membership goals.


BrandSource has announced that Jeannette Howe has accepted the position of director of membership for the appliance, furniture, mattress and consumer electronics buying group.

Tom Bennett, president of BrandSource, notes that Howe's vast industry experience will provide the company many benefits. 

 “The BrandSource management team is quite impressed with Jeannette’s extensive industry experience and we are thrilled to have her on board,” he says. “Her deep understanding of the national buying group landscape will be a tremendous asset to BrandSource.  She knows the independent dealer community and genuinely enjoys working with them.”

“I am very excited to be playing a meaningful role at BrandSource.  I left Home Entertainment Source [now ProSource] a decade ago and I feel like I have come home,” she says. “We have tremendous momentum coming off the BrandSource Summit last week in Orlando. Our goals include growing the BrandSource family with the right dealers and increasing our relevance with the vendor community. Under the direction of new CEO Jim Ristow, BrandSource is experiencing a new day, developing into a significant force in the appliance, home furnishings and technology space. I am honored to be joining such a vibrant organization.”
