Timothy Dorwart, CEO of Community Professional Loudspeakers, passed away on July 15 due to illness.
Dorwart became Community’s CEO in March of this year and led the company through its introduction of several important new products at InfoComm, the biggest domestic trade show covering the AV market. Dorwart’s previous roles included Director and VP positions with Bose Corp. and DMX Music. Since 2007, he had led the Stanton Group through a successful turnaround as its CEO. Dorwart came to Community from Gibson Guitar Corp., where he held the position of General Manager, Pro Audio and guided the integration of Stanton Group assets to form Gibson’s new Pro Audio Division.
Bruce Howze, Community’s President, said, “We are deeply saddened by Tim’s death. We mourn the loss of our chief executive and a good friend, and we extend our most sincere condolences to his wife and family.”
