Skaf Named AMX CEO

Publish date:

Richardson, TX -- Rashid Skaf has been named president and CEO of AMX and will serve on the company's board of directors beginning September 30, when current chairman and CEO Bob Carroll will step down. Carroll will return to his consulting practice as chairman and CEO of Roscommon, and will also join the investment advisory board of Duchossois Technology Partners, a venture capital firm affiliated with AMX's new parent company, Duchossois Industries.

Under Carroll and Skaf's leadership, the company regained its financial stature in large part due to substantially increased investment in R&D, marketing and sales programs, and customer service initiatives. Subsequently, product development at the company has increased its reach to include media asset management software and hardware. With AMX's April 2005 acquisition by Duchossois Industries came a further increase in commitment to R&D.

"As advanced technologies become more integral to the commercial marketplace, our customers need to more effectively manage technology devices and assets," Skaf explained. "AMX is answering this need through three key product lines-MeetingManager, MAX and our ethernet switches."
