QSC announces new management roles

QSC has announced major changes in its senior management team, with Joe Pham assuming the role of COO, replacing John Andrews, who will now jointly share the CEO duties with his brother, Barry Andrews. After serving in a dual capacity as CEO and senior VP of sales and marketing, Barry Andrews will in turn relinquish the latter title, which will be eliminated. Within the new structure, QSC founder and chief designer Pat Quilter will continue to steer research and development.

Joe Pham was recruited by QSC and groomed for the COO post based upon his ability to fulfill and implement the company's core vision and strategies while promoting its values and ethics. Pham, a UCLA graduate with a doctorate in electrical engineering, will report directly to Barry and John Andrews. His duties will include day-to-day management of sales, marketing, R&D, operations, human resources, finance and strategy.

Pham joined QSC in 2004 as the company's chief strategy and technology officer. Earlier, he spent four years with McKinsey & Company, a global management consulting firm. Pham also spent time as a professor in UCLA's electrical engineering department and with Raytheon's adaptive signal processing group.
