Kramer Electronics has announced the appointment of Itzhak Bambagi as CEO, effective immediately. The appointment comes as the company aims to further drive its software and cloud-based initiatives to both support and adopt new business models.
Bambagi has a track record serving in key executive roles at IBM and Digital/Compaq over the past 18 years. Among the various projects and technologies on which he worked, he also led IBM’s IT transformational experience using cloud technologies and various digital workplace initiatives across EMEA.
“I am both proud and honored to be joining Kramer as their CEO,” Bambagi said. “For the past four decades, Kramer has led the way with advanced AV solutions, and the Kramer brand is known and respected worldwide. I have been a long-term admirer of Dr. Joseph Kramer’s dedication, work and vision and look forward to working with the global Kramer teams to further enhance the company’s evolution and making Kramer even greater.”
Bambagi continued, “Bringing software and cloud components further into the pro AV arena is the next step. By allowing remote support and management, we can bring standard uniformity to multisite installations, wherever they are in the world. Hassle-free solutions and an outstanding user experience are key and my IBM experience will assist in delivering technology that ‘behaves’ in ways that are wholly familiar to—and expected by—IT departments.”
