David Humphries has been re-elected as the 2013/2014 president of the Independent Professional Representative Organization (IPRO).
This is only the second time in IPRO’s 24-year history that a president has been re-elected to a second term.
Humphries is the founder and owner of Atlantic Integrated, a Rockleigh, NJ-based representative agency serving the New York Metro area.
Under Humphries’ leadership, IPRO has made many strategic moves that position the organization to better serve the residential and commercial AV industries. The 2013/2014 IPRO board will be comprised of leading technical representatives from the CEDIA and InfoComm industries. InfoComm representatives now hold two of the five key positions on the IPRO executive committee.
The IPRO Manufacturers Group has also evolved to reflect the changing face of the industry. The manufacturers that head up this group come from the leading technological firms shaping our industry today and tomorrow.
“Evolving IPRO to best serve our industry is my number-one priority,” said Humphries. “I’m looking forward to two more years of collaborating with industry organizations to bring value to our members and implementing strategic plans and vision to make this organization the best it’s ever been.”
Humphries has also brought a renewed focus to the New Leaders Group, a group of seven of the brightest minds from the leading technical representatives across the United States. This group advises the IPRO board on strategic direction in technical and marketing trends shaping the AV industry.
Humphries has also strengthened and re-defined IPRO’s relationship with the Custom Electronics Design and Installation Association (CEDIA), Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), and Mobile Electronics Retailers Association (MERA) organizations, as well as InfoComm. IPRO is working with each of these organizations to communicate a unified approach with the AV industry.
