AUTHOR: Inavate

Staff at Community Professional Loudspeakers are mourning the death of CEO Timothy Dorwart  who held several roles in the pro audio industry over the years. He passed away on July 15th due to illness.

Dorwart became Community’s CEO in March of this year and led the company through its introduction of several important new products at InfoComm.

Dorwart’s previous roles included director and VP positions with Bose Corporation and DMX Music. Since 2007, he had led the Stanton Group through a successful turnaround as their CEO. Dorwart came to Community from Gibson Guitar Corporation where he held the position of General Manager, Pro Audio and guided the integration of Stanton Group assets to form Gibson's new Pro Audio Division.

Bruce Howze, Community’s President, said, “We are deeply saddened by Tim’s death. We mourn the loss of our chief executive and a good friend and we extend our most sincere condolences to his wife and family.”
