Ive known Eric for years, and working with him in the past I know what a valuable asset he will be for Wisdom Audio, said Ed Jaeger, Wisdom Audio CEO & CFO. His experience with the production of high-end audio components and systems along with his attention to detail will greatly help benefit and streamline our internal and external strategies and goals as we bring our new Sage Series to market, and beyond.
