Apart Audio names new CEO
Kris Vermuyten has been promoted to CEO of Apart Audio. Vermuyten joined Apart Audio more than 20 years ago and was most recently marketing & sales director of Apart Audio.
Both Vermuyten and Steve Johnson (CEO of Community Professional Loudspeakers) will report to Koen Claerbout as Group CEO of Audioprof Group International (APGI).
This changes can free up Claerbout (up to now he was, in a combined function, also acting CEO of Apart Audio) for strategic initiatives to develop the group in terms of organic growth, strategic partnerships and acquisition initiatives. Claerbout will also be involved in other investment activities of 3D-Investors (the majority shareholder of APGI).
Vermuyten comments: “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to further expand the Apart Audio brand under the APGI umbrella in the coming years. Together with the management team we will keep focusing on the small & medium sized fixed install market. In cooperation with our worldwide distribution partners it is our goal to continue offering a reliable and competitive product range that fulfils the needs in the retail, food & hospitality, corporate, sports & leisure and education verticals we are focusing on.”
