Who Will Jeremy Burkhardt Buy? Who SHOULD he Buy?
Jeremy Burkhardt, the former SpeakerCraft president who is suing his former employers, says he is planning to buy a company in this space. Can you guess who it is?
Former SpeakerCraft owner and president Jeremy Burkhardt has sued his former employers SpeakerCraft and Nortek over a non-compete agreement he signed in 2003 when Nortek bought his company.
He says he’s itching to get back into the industry but Nortek is threatening to sue if he does.
On facebook yesterday he posted, “I hope to tell you about the company we are buying real soon.”
Presumably it’s an audio-related company or something else in the home technology arena, or he probably wouldn’t care about the non-compete.
So ... what company do you think Jeremy is trying to buy? And what company do you think he should buy?
