Filippo Fanton has been named CEO of high-end loudspeaker manufacturer Sonus Faber, replacing Mauro Grange.
Fanton had served as CFO of the company for the last eight years and will also continue in that position “until further notice,” according to a statement.
Sonus Faber is owned by McIntosh Group, previously known as Fine Sounds. The group also owns the McIntosh Laboratory, Audio Research, Wadia, Sumiko Subwoofers and Pryma brands. Grange stepped down as McIntosh Group CEO on Dec. 31, 2016, as part of a management buyout supported by financial sponsors LBO France and Yarpa, according to a McIntosh Group statement.
“Filippo has done an excellent job serving as CFO and I’m looking forward to working with him in his expanded role as CEO of Sonus Faber. Sonus Faber has a bright future under Filippo’s leadership,” said McIntosh Group CEO Charlie Randall in a statement.
“I am honored to lead such a prestigious company as Sonus Faber. I am equally eager to not only preserve but expand its prominent standing in the high-end audio industry in order to provide our customers with the very best Italian handcrafted speakers,” said Fanton.
