Stamford, CT (November 20, 2008)–Harman International Industries has formed a marketing relationship with musician/producer Quincy Jones for licensed and co-branded products in the consumer, automotive and professional audio fields.
Jones will also make a number of appearances at Harman-sponsored events and contribute to various corporate and brand-level marketing activities.
“Quincy’s passion for excellence in the entertainment field is a natural complement to our own respected audio brands,” said Dinesh C. Paliwal, Harman’s chairman and CEO. “His iconic status and musical genius pair strongly with Harman’s technical leadership and legacy of innovation and provide an exciting expression of our mutual commitment to delivering superior performances.”
“Creating memorable musical experiences is both my business and my passion,” said Jones. “The value of any production is established when the performers’ true talents are expressed in the studio, the concert hall, or the homes of our shared customers through superior audio equipment. I have long respected Harman systems for meeting this requirement, and I’m pleased to join Harman in celebrating our shared commitment.”
“This new relationship brings Quincy, a recognized leader in sound production, together with Harman, a recognized leader in sound reproduction,” said Robert Thorne, CEO of Quincy Jones Enterprises.
