Yacoubian Takes Over SVSound
Industry veteran Gary Yacoubian, formerly of MyerEmco, is now president, CEO and managing partner of Specialty Technologies, LLC, a new entity that has purchased the assets of SVSound.
Yacoubian, a 25-year industry veteran, was the longtime president of MyerEmco and spent the last two years as vice president of strategic development at Monster Cable. Yacoubian will remain a senior strategic advisor to Head Monster Noel Lee.
Ron Stimpson, who founded the company in 1998, will continue to play a key role.
“I am thrilled to be a part of SVSound, as are my partners at Specialty Technologies, Yacoubian said as part of the announcement.
"We view SVS as a platform to see what is possible in the world of specialty high-performance audio today and in the future. This is a niche that has historically been hugely important to the Consumer Electronics industry, but has been mostly neglected in favor of ‘hunkering down’ during a global recession."
