Gentner Communications is changing its name to ClearOne Communications Inc. Gentner shareholders approved the change at their annual meeting.
ClearOne name more effectively communicates the company’s focus on conferencing, is more marketable to its target audiences, and better reflects the company’s new image and growth objectives, said Gentner president and chief executive officer Frances Flood. “The company today is dramatically different than when it began in 1981, and the new name more accurately depicts all areas of our business.”
The change is effective Jan. 1, 2002. The company will begin trading under the symbol “CLRO” on Nasdaq.
Gentner’s conferencing products will continue to be branded under the Gentner name.
