VUE Audiotechnik in Escondido, Calif., announces that Jim Sides (pictured) is stepping down from his active role as Executive Vice President.
Since VUE Audiotechnik’s launch in 2012, Sides has been actively building VUE’s global network through distribution, dealer and integrator relationships. He has successfully established global VUE presence, notably with the formation of VUE Europa GmbH and VUE China, in addition to making key distribution appointments in Asia and Europe.
“Moving to a strictly strategic role will significantly reduce my travel and day-to-day involvement in VUE operations,” Sides says. “My time with VUE has been greatly rewarding, and the rapid growth of the company in today’s competitive marketplace is truly remarkable.”
In 2012, Sides threw himself head-first into the opportunity of being a part of the VUE Audiotechnik launch: “VUE’s determination to create a fresh approach to sound reinforcement with advanced technology, transducers and system design was infectious; the chance to work with industry veterans Ken Berger and Mike Adams was too good to turn down. I am so proud to have had a hand in that success.”
Ken Berger, VUE CEO, states: “Having watched Jim as a competitor for over three decades, it has been truly a pleasure to work side by side with a man of such integrity.”
In regards to his plans for the immediate future, Sides is clear about the direction he will be taking, but wants to hold off on making any official announcement for the time being: “I am looking forward to contributing to the continued success of our industry and working with many of the incredible people I’ve had the privilege to meet over the years.”
The VUE Audiotechnik staff extends Sides sincere thanks for his contribution to the company’s success.
