Dana Vannatta

Founder & CEO
Hometown: Carmel, Indiana Title: Owner/Manager

Long before Dana received a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Indiana State, he began his love of music and sound equipment. His educational background enhances his natural love for the high end custom audio-video industry. With over thirty years of experience in the custom audio-video industry, Dana has worked for several other companies so when he started Specialty Electronics in February of 2003, he knew exactly how he didn’t want to do business. His experiences confirmed that the only way to have a successful company was to concentrate on the client and to keep
customer service at a top-notch level. Each system he designs and his crew installs is unique to that client and matches their lifestyle.
