Community names Timothy Dorwart CEO
WORLD: Community Professional has appointed Timothy Dorwart as its new CEO, tasking the former Gibson Pro Audio general manager with ‘leading Community into a new era of exceptional growth’. Mr Dowart boasts more than 30 years of sales, manufacturing and management experience in the pro audio and music industries.
Though his most recent role was with Gibson, Mr Dorwart has also held director and VP positions with Bose Corporation and DMX Music. He is perhaps best known within the industry for his service as CEO of Stanton Group and his later work to integrate that company’s assets into the newly created Gibson Pro Audio division.
Speaking of his new position, he describes himself as ‘delighted to join Community at a pivotal time in its history. The company is poised for considerable expansion and I look forward to leading the company into the future.’
Bruce Howze, the founder and president of Community Professional, added: ‘Community has continued to grow throughout the economic recession, with its diverse profile of outdoor and installation products. I’m confident that under Tim’s leadership, Community will not only continue its strong performance, but start an upward trajectory of unprecedented growth. Tim will be the major driving force in the company’s future. I’m thrilled to welcome him to Community.’
