Bob Moses will be the new Audio Engineering Society executive director starting Jan. 1, 2012.
Moses is a long-time member of the AES and an equipment designer. Moses’ selection was the result of a lengthy search. He succeeds Roger Furness, who has been in the job for 17 years.
AES President Jan Pedersen said Moses is qualified to address the multi-faceted demands of the 14,000 plus member organization. “He brings enthusiasm, technical acumen, leadership and communications skills to this critical position. His deep appreciation for our 63-year history coupled with his eagerness to address the challenges of the future make him an ideal choice for executive director.”
Over the years Moses has been with Rane, Digital Harmony Technologies and THAT Corp. He has designed digital products, technologies and overseen product development. Moses has been involved with AES governance in many ways including being on the AES board since 1999. He was board president in 2007–2008. He has also participated in organizing AES conventions, notably as Product Design Track Chair.
Moses said: “I’ve learned almost everything I know about audio, and met many of my closest colleagues, through AES activities.”
