THIEL Audio, the lexington based high-end loudspeaker manufacturer, has announced that consumer electronics Brownsenior executive Bob Brown has been appointed to the company’s board of directors and will take over as interim COO effective immediately. Brown, recently named to CEDIA’s board of directors, brings a rich legacy and successful track record in the performance audio category to THIEL as the former President and CEO of Lenbrook America, which distributed NAD Electronics and PSB Speakers. Brown was also President and COO of Tivoli Audio and currently serves as the international sales manager for ZVOX Audio.

Brown’s role with THIEL will be to provide the company’s new ownership with a complete analysis of the existing operation, including manufacturing, domestic and international sales as well as marketing. “THIEL is a brand with a very rich history and my goal will be to provide the guidance and market awareness necessary to maximize opportunities going forward,” Brown stated. “It’s important that as we adapt THIEL’s domestic and international sales processes as well as its product development direction to contemporary business ideals, but that we do so very mindful of the brand’s legacy. This ownership group seems acutely aware of this necessity and appreciative of the pitfalls that have characterized other investor-led high-end audio acquisitions.” added Brown.
