Industry veteran Jim Mack becomes Ashly CEO

WORLD: Ashly Audio’s parent company, Jam Industries, has hired Jim Mack to serve as the processing equipment and power amplification brand’s new CEO. Mr Mack possesses more than 30 years of pro audio industry experience during which he has filled such notable roles as general manager at TASCAM, CEO at PreSonus and, most recently, executive vice president at TEAC.

As CEO of Ashly Audio, Mr Mack is tasked with expanding the business within its existing markets while also venturing into new ones. He will report directly to Jam Industries president and CEO Marty Szpiro.

‘On top of being a great person to work with, Jim has a depth and breadth of experience that makes him a real asset to Ashly, especially at this moment in Ashly’s history,’ said Mr Szpiro. ‘He has proven people and recruiting skills, and a tactician’s instinct for the right moves at the right times. Ashly is an essential and strategic asset in Jam Industries’ portfolio, and we’re thrilled to have Jim on the Ashly team.’

‘With the full backing and blessing of Jam Industries, I’m looking forward to growing Ashly by taking it in new directions and by growing its share in existing markets,’ enthused Mr Mack. ‘Jam is one of the best companies in the industry and has an excellent record of finding great people and then stepping back to let them do what they do well. Ashly has a great brand. It’s one of the old, iconic brands that has held strong for decades. Indeed, Ashly’s stable, passionate, and talented team was a big draw for me. They’ve done fabulous things with the company, and I’ll add to their strengths, not change them. I’m especially excited to work with Mark Wentling (Ashly Audio president), whom I’ve known for a while.’
