Harman announced the appointment of audio industry veteran Jim Garrett to the position of market manager for the Harman High Performance A/V brands: Mark Levinson, Lexicon, Revel, and JBL Synthesis. Garrett brings more than 18 years of industry experience in both research and development for audio engineering and high-end home audio marketing, and will use this experience to continue the expansion of Harman's brands.

Prior to joining Harman, Garrett worked at the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA), where he was the director of technical training for the education department and the staff liaison for the instructor pool, sales representatives, and EST content action teams. Before his time at CEDIA, Garrett worked as a consultant for Velodyne Acoustics and spent nine years at Klipsch Group, where he was director of product planning. While at Klipsch, he led the development of several award-winning audio product lines for the Klipsch and Aragon brands, including a complete suite of THX Ultra2-certified electronics and loudspeaker system, and the Palladium and Reference Series lines of loudspeakers.

Garrett's career began with stints in retail, starting with three years at Best Buy as an assistant store manager and 4.5 years in sales and management at a CEDIA channel specialty retailer and integrator. At Harman, Garrett will be responsible for new product roadmaps, marketing strategy, and marketing communications for the High Performance A/V Brands.

"Jim's experience as a product planning manager and his time in retail put him in the perfect position to carry out a long and successful career with Harman High Performance AV," said Marc Kellom, vice president of marketing for Harman High Performance A/V, in a statement. "We're all very confident that he will make an immediate and profound contribution to the team and we are excited to begin working with him."
