LOUD Audio has made a new addition to its board of directors in hiring Mark Ureda.
Ureda comes to the board with significant experience, having recently retired from Harman Professional in 2018, from the role of senior vice president, products and technology. His journey at Harman began in 2010 as president of JBL Professional, also serving as CTO and vice president of Harman Pro.
As senior vice president, Ureda was responsible for R&D, product development, software development, and product management for a range of product lines, including AKG microphones and headphones, AMX video and control, BSS and dbx signal processing, crown amplifiers, JBL Professional loudspeakers, Martin Professional lighting, and Soundcraft and Studer mixing consoles.
Transom managing partner, Ty Schultz, declared: "We are thrilled to have Mark join the LOUD Board. Mark brings decades of industry and product experience to the table and will be invaluable in helping to sharpen and refine the company's product strategy moving forward."
"I am very excited to join the LOUD Audio board," added Ureda. "Transom and Mackie management are terrific and are clearly driven to take the brand to new levels of success. I am looking forward to bringing my pro audio experience to the team. Working with the LOUD team will be great fun!"
