Indianapolis — Klipsch Group appointed Oscar Bernardo as president of global operations.
Bernardo, an eight-year Klipsch veteran, was sales and operations senior VP for Klipsch Group’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) business. He joined Klipsch Group in 2006 and shortly thereafter became operations senior VP. As sales and operations senior VP for the EMEA region, he was responsible for all aspects of business involving the Klipsch, Energy and Jamo audio brands in 19 countries, the company said.
Before joining Klipsch, he served in executive- and management-level positions focused on operations at Audio Products International, Fineline Circuits Limited and Campeau.
