Senior Development Engineer, Klipsch Group, Inc.
Chris approves the acoustics for all Klipsch brand products before they are released for sale—essentially facing the formidable task of upholding the legendary acoustic standards established by Paul W. Klipsch over 65 years ago. An especially notable accomplishment was his development of the Palladium Line, a Klipsch flagship. According to his co-workers, Perrins successfully works independently and requires minimum supervision. As a reliable and knowledgeable member of the team, he is respected and admired by his peers—even those who are older and more experienced. www.klipsch.com
