After more than 35 years in the AV industry, Dave Bright, President and CEO of Kramer Electronics USA, has announced he will retire at the end of 2016. Bright will retire just months short of 20 years with the company, having started Kramer USA in 1997.
In addition to his time with Kramer, Bright also started and ran the Professional Electronic Division (PED) of Mitsubishi for almost 13 years in the 80’s and 90’s.
A professional search firm has been engaged to find a new President to replace Bright for the day-to-day operations of Kramer USA. When a successor is found, Bright will become Chairman of the Board of Kramer USA in a strategic planning capacity, until his actual retirement at the end of 2016.
In retirement, Bright and his wife of more than 39 years, Debbie, plan to extensively travel and enjoy time with their grandchildren. Bright will continue to work in the field of education as a member of the Board of Directors of the local Hunterdon County Polytech Technical School, and as a lifelong and avid baseball fan and player, he also plans to pursue his passion for coaching children in the sport.
