Northridge, CA (January 15, 2020)—Harman Professional Solutions has promoted Brian Divine to the role of president of its Professional Solutions division.
In his new role, Divine will be responsible for overseeing the division’s worldwide operations, strategy, product roadmap and performance across all eleven Harman Pro brands—JBL Professional, AKG, Martin, AMX, Soundcraft, Studer, BSS Audio, Crown, dbx Professional, DigiTech and Lexicon.
Divine has worked in pro audio for the last 18 years, nearly all of them at Harman with the exception of a three-year tenure at Bosch. In his 15 combined years at Harman Professional, Divine worked in nearly all of the entertainment and enterprise vertical markets the division serves, taking on roles in customer service, sales, engineering, marketing and product management. Divine was most recently senior vice president for Products & Customer Solutions in the Professional Solutions division and vice president of Product & Program Management, respectively.
“I am honored to accept this role, and do so with great humility and awareness of the awesome responsibility of carrying forward Harman’s iconic brands that were built over the course of, in some cases, nine decades,” said Divine. “The pro industry is in my DNA as my career was built though dedication to Harman Professional Solutions and its employees, channel partners and customers. These influences will directly impact the direction of the division as we look towards a robust roadmap committed to, and aligned with, customer needs for leading-edge pro products in audio, lighting and video control.”
The move comes just days after the departure of the division’s former president & EVP, Mohit Parshar, following a four-year tenure that began just months before the Harman conglomerate was purchased by Samsung.
