Russound Names CIO
Multiroom audio manufacturer Russound promoted Vince Tan to Chief Information Officer. Tan will oversee all facets of the company’s information technology.
“Vince continues to be instrumental in our success in the custom installation market,” said Russound President and CEO Maureen K. Baldwin. “He created the infrastructure that allowed us to take advantage of critical market opportunities. Like so many of our talented staff, his hard work behind the scenes is the foundation which we’ve built our success upon.”
Tan joined Russound in 2000 as a “one-man IT department, which he quickly grew into a seven-person staff as he demonstrated the myriad of ways in which information technology can improve a company’s bottom line,” said Russound. Tan implemented the company’s Automated Inventory Management system, the Russound reseller web site and an internal IT project management web site for assigning and tracking computer related issues.
In 2002, Russound promoted Tan to IT director. Tan also oversees the company’s purchasing department and building operations. Before joining Russound, Tan served as the IT director at UFP Technologies in Massachusetts.
“Russound became the top brand in multiroom audio by having great products and utilizing the right mix of people, marketing and technology,” said Tan. “I take tremendous pride in being part of that equation.”
