Community CEO Steve Johnson

Community Professional Loudspeakers in Chester, Penn., has appointed Steve Johnson (pictured) as the company's CEO. Johnson joins Community from Bosch where he held the position of Global Brand Manager and was responsible for brand management of Electro-Voice, RTS, Telex and Dynacord audio products worldwide.

Johnson has more than 25 years of engineering, marketing and management experience in the pro audio and communications industries. In his new role, Johnson is tasked with overseeing the company’s overall business and sales strategies, and leading Community into a new era of exceptional growth.

Johnson’s previous roles have included vice president and brand management positions with Bosch Communications Systems, Harman Music Group and Shure Inc.

“I am delighted to join Community at this important time in its history,” Johnson says. “The company is well respected worldwide and has an impressive line-up of new products. Community is poised for strong growth and I look forward to leading the company into the future.”

Johnson joins Community as it celebrates 45 years in professional audio. Founded in 1968 by its current President and Chief Engineer, Bruce Howze, Community began as a loudspeaker component and lighting company. Today Community is a prominent pro audio manufacturer with an advanced product line, supplying professional loudspeakers and related products to high profile installations worldwide and enjoying record sales in U.S. and international markets.

“Community has continued to grow throughout the economic recession and recovery, with its diverse profile of high value, high performance outdoor and installation products,” says Howze. “I’m confident that under Steve’s leadership, Community will not only continue its strong performance, but start an upward trajectory of unprecedented growth. Steve will be a major driving force in the company’s future. I’m very pleased to welcome him to Community.”
