AES Executive Director Roger Furness

Jim Kaiser, president of the Audio Engineering Society, announces that Roger Furness (pictured), AES Executive Director since 1994, will step down from his position at the end of 2011. An AES member since 1975, Furness has served as Section Chair; Vice President, AES Europe; and as AES President. To ensure continuity in all aspects of the AES organization, the Executive Committee has asked him to remain as Executive Director Emeritus throughout 2012.

“My 17 years as AES Executive Director have been an exhilarating and deeply gratifying experience,” Furness says. “I have thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with Convention Committees on nearly 40 major events in the United States and throughout Europe. I have also been privileged to work with AES members around the world on hundreds of conferences, workshops and internal events.

"I take great pride in these accomplishments and in having guided the AES through the particularly difficult times experienced by the entire professional audio industry over the past decade. I look forward to continuing to contribute my time and energy to this indispensable organization in future years.”

Kaiser reports that the AES will form an Executive Director search committee, and that AES will issue a call for applications.

“Roger Furness has performed an important and extremely difficult job for the AES for the past seventeen years,” Kaiser says. “We greatly appreciate his decision to continue working with us after a qualified replacement has been found, to insure a smooth transition.”
