Community Appoints VP/COO
Community Professional Loudspeakers said this week it had appointed Chris Foreman to the position of vice president, chief operating officer.
Foreman, who rejoined the company last year after a 20-year departure, has more than 40 years of experience in professional audio. In the 1980s, Foreman was the editor of Sound & Communicationsmagazine and co-authored Audio Engineering for Sound Reinforcement with the late John Eargle. He also held prominent positions with manufacturers such as JBL, Panasonic, and Altec Lansing, as well as with low-voltage contractors like Stanal Sound, Pierce-Phelps, and Electronic Contracting. He previously served as Community's director of marketing in the early 1980s.
"I'm delighted to be back working with Community," he said. "This has always been one of the industry's most exciting companies, with a 40-year history of innovation and creativity, an accurate, no-nonsense approach to specifications and documentation, and a strong focus on customer service. I'm looking forward to leading the company into its next 40 years of innovative loudspeakers."
"We're thrilled to welcome Chris back to Community," said founder and president Bruce Howze, in a statement. "He is one of those rare individuals whose background spans nearly every facet of our industry, from marketing and manufacturing to education and journalism."
