Academic honour for Harman Pro CEO

test 28 April 2009

US: Blake Augsburger has received a prestigious engineering award from a US university, reports PSN-e. The Harman Professional CEO (pictured) was one of five recipients of the 2009 Distinguished Engineer Award, which is bestowed by the Texas Tech University’s Edward E. Whitacre Jr College.

The Distinguished Engineer Award was established in the mid ’60s to recognise the most outstanding alumni of the college, since when 194 graduates have received the honour. Augsburger took both his graduate and post-graduate degrees at the college.

"I am honoured and humbled to be named a Distinguished Engineer by Texas Tech University," commented Augsburger. "I congratulate the other recipients and I am grateful to the University for its contribution to the advancement of engineering innovation, for its great service to the student body, and for the education and direction that I received at the school."

Blake Augsburger began working at Harman International Industries in July 2001 as president of Crown International – a role he held until June 2006, when he was promoted to the position of president and CEO of the Harman Pro Group. He added to his roster of responsibilities in January 2008 with the role of country manager Harman USA.
