Symetrix, creators of digital audio processing solutions, announced that Mark and Rachelle Graham have joined the Symetrix team as the new owners of the business. Mark Graham will be assuming the role of CEO, bringing over 30 years of experience in the audio industry to the table.
Symetrix’s current owner, Julia Ogden, has been considering a change in ownership of the company for some time after 32 years with Symetrix. “I knew I could never sell this business unless it was to the right people,” Ogden said. “It had to be someone who cared about the business and all the exceptional people who work here, and our business partners around the globe. I was looking for continuity and an alliance with the same high standards and core values that sets Symetrix apart from the crowd. I believe the Graham’s are the perfect fit.”
Mark Graham was CEO of LOUD Technologies for the last 8 years. Before that, Graham was the President of Crown Audio, a Harman company. His industry experience includes working for Hewlett Packard in their test and measurement division and owning his own audio contracting business. “Mark has a depth of industry experience and engineering expertise that is exactly the right background to accelerate the growth trajectory of the company, especially with his laser-focus on continuing to deliver innovative products,”Ogden explained.
Rachelle Graham has been a marketing manager for several large organizations, including Agilent Technologies, the University of Kansas and BioServe Space Technologies, one of NASA’s Commercial Space Centers.
Symetrix is poised to launch several new products in the next couple of months. The company will remain at the same location, and all employees will be retained. Julia Ogden will continue to work for the company during a transition period and will also serve on the company’s board of directors going forward.
