Ureda to Head Harman Loudspeaker Group

Moves from aerospace to audio space

Mark Ureda has been named vice president and general manager of Harman International Professional Loudspeaker Group. The group consists of JBL Professional and the recently acquired Selenium, a Brazil-based maker of live sound and installation speakers.

Ureda arrives from Northrup Grumman Corp. where he most recently had been vice president, Corporate Strategy.

Despite the aerospace experience, Ureda has a background in acoustics. He received a master of science in acoustics from Penn State University and also has a master of business administration from UCLA. He started his career at Altec Lansing; there he was credited with developing the constant directivity horn and a number of patents. He has been a technical consultant to JBL since 1999.

He succeeds John Carpanini, who moved over to Harman’s automotive division.
