Furman Sound has appointed James R. Bonfiglio as the company’s president and CEO. Bonfiglio recently held positions as president and CEO with Home America, an independent appliance and electronic retail operation in the Southwest; Texscan Corp., an Arizona-based manufacturer of cable television equipment; and senior-management positions with Rockwell International, Cenco Inc., and The Gillette Company, Paper Mate division.

In other company news, next year, Furman Sound will celebrate its 30-year anniversary. Furman Sound’s VP of sales and marketing, Joe Desmond, stated, “Over the past 12 months, Furman Sound has implemented more improvements to company operations than possibly any other manufacturer in the pro audio industry. The addition of high-profile influential sales reps, an aggressive advertising and marketing communications program, and superior order processing and same-day shipping of core products has made Furman Sound integral to the dealer’s profit center. Furman Sound’s elevated brand stature has also allowed the company to expand distribution into Europe and other parts of the world faster than projected.

“The addition of James R. Bonfiglio as president/CEO of Furman Sound marks an exciting new phase in our company’s history,” he continued. “With his vast experience in guiding and developing companies to their full potential, James’ vision and entrepreneurial management style is perfectly suited to continually position Furman Sound as an industry leader in new and existing markets while dramatically improving sales.”

“I am very excited about joining Furman Sound,” Bonfiglio said. “Over the years, Furman Sound has continued to expand its distribution, consumer and product base while remaining profitable. I look forward to contributing to, as well as improving existing, and developing new, processes as Furman Sound extends its vision into the future.”

Bonfiglio can be reached via his e-mail address, JimB@furmansound.com. For more information, visit Furman Sound online at www.furmansound.com.
