Veteran car audio executive Ray Windsor announced his resignation from boutique supplier German Maestro USA as President.
He continues to run a consulting firm called Leadership Systems. His last day at German Maestro will be announced in the coming days or weeks, he said.
“For the past six years, in partnership with the founders in Germany I have put forth much effort, expended significant energy and engaged many resources, aimed at the mission of building German Maestro into an important brand to the specialty retail community in the United States. During this time we have enjoyed successes and suffered failures,” Windsor said.
“I shall set about the business of finding a way to use my next 10 or so working years toward adding value to the business, and perhaps, personal lives of the people with whom I work,” he said of the car audio market.
German Maestro launched in the US as a specialist speaker brand around 6 years ago, selling drivers made in the factory in Germany where the original MB Quart speakers were built and employing some former MB Quart employees.
Parent Maestro Badenia told retailers in an email that it will continue to handle US business from the office in Germany, and that next week retailers will receiver more information.
