Soundcast Systems, developer of wireless audio systems and products since 2004, has hired Mike Weaver as its new president, replacing Mal Hollombe, who is stepping down after five years with the company.
During the past eight years Weaver had served as president and co-founder of Qsonix, a CE manufacturer of high-performance luxury music management and storage systems. Having resigned the leadership position at Qsonix, Weaver is relocating to the San Diego, CA, area where Soundcast Systems is based.
This appointment follows the hiring of CE consulting firm, The OAC Group, in 2010. Over its history, OAC has assisted more than 100 companies in the CE, custom integration, and music industry channels.
Oscar Ciornei, senior partner of The OAC Group said, ”We are excited to move forward to our next plateau of dominance in the wireless audio market under the leadership and guidance of Mike Weaver. His entrepreneurial-spirited, hands-on management approach will escalate Soundcast Systems’ commitment to be the ‘go to’ brand name for high-tech, cutting-edge, robust wireless products which meet and exceed the customers’ demands.”
Weaver succeeds Hollombe, who is pursuing other interests. Ciornei noted that Hollombe will be fondly remembered at Soundcast for his ability to lead with enthusiasm, his dedication, and his numerous contributions and successes. Hollombe will remain an expert resource throughout the transition and a friend of the company, he said.
Weaver added, “I am honored and delighted to be chosen as the new president of Soundcast Systems. This wonderful and innovative company is positioned perfectly to be a very significant electronics player in the connected-world marketplace that is becoming more wireless than ever.”
