Escondido, CA (February 22, 2016)—Jim Sides is stepping down from his active role as executive vice president at VUE Audiotechnik.
Sides noted, “Moving to a strictly strategic role will significantly reduce my travel and day-to-day involvement in VUE operations. My time with VUE has been greatly rewarding, and the rapid growth of the company in today’s competitive marketplace is truly remarkable.”
Since VUE Audiotechnik’s launch in 2012, Sides has been actively building VUE’s global network through distribution, dealer and integrator relationships. He has established global VUE presence, notably with the formation of VUE Europa GmbH and VUE China, and made key distribution appointments in Asia and Europe.
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.”
