Kramer Electronics just announced that Clint Hoffman, Chief Operating Officer & Chief Growth Officer, has been promoted to the role of Chief Executive Officer of Kramer Electronics USA.
His new position takes effect immediately. Hoffman joined Kramer USA in 2001 as VP Marketing for Kramer USA, driving all branding, public relations, advertising, promotions and campaigns, social media and trade show activities in the US market. Prior to this appointment, Hoffman was named as COO (August 2016) and CGO (May 2017) at Kramer Electronics USA.
“Clint is a seasoned and trusted leader which makes him an obvious choice for CEO of our US office,” said Dr. Joseph Kramer, Founder and CEO of Kramer Electronics. “I am confident that with Clint at the helm of our US office we will strengthen our position in the US market and accelerate business processes,” added Kramer.
“I am deeply honored to be entrusted with such responsibility”, said Hoffman. “As someone who has dedicated his professional career to the Pro AV industry, and to Kramer in particular, I am incredibly motivated. We have many opportunities ahead of us and I’m fortunate to help lead the way,” added Hoffman.
Hoffman is a well-known figure in the Pro AV market due to his advisory and voluntary roles as an adjunct faculty member of AVIXA (formerly InfoComm International) and as chairman of AVIXA’s Membership Committee. Hoffman also recently completed a long-term appointment with the International Communications Industries Foundation Board and was inducted into SCN magazine’s Pro AV Hall of Fame.
“I’ve known Clint for over 25 years and he will do wonders for Kramer USA. He is one of the few people in the industry that has no enemies. I can’t believe they actually found someone nicer than Dave Bright” shared Gary Kayye, rAVe Founder.
Clint joined Gary on a special InfoComm edition of his Rants and rAVe’s podcast talking about Kramer’s InfoComm plans. You can listen here.
