Rocco Melchione has been appointed president and CEO of Anthem, MartinLogan and Paradigm, the companies announced.

Melchione brings more than twenty years experience at the senior executive level in global manufacturing and sales to his new position. He held a leadership role in an $800 million expansion for a global division of Panasonic Corporation.

Closer to home, he helped integrate the iconic Baldwin Piano Company into Gibson Guitar Corporation, as a Gibson subsidiary. Melchione’s in-depth experience with global supply chain management, continuous process improvement and quality practices will be invaluable to the future growth of the three brands.

“I’m excited to join a company with such iconic brands as Paradigm, MartinLogan and Anthem,” Melchione says. “For decades, these global audio brands have provided consumers around the world with state-of-the-art sound that is unmatched for the pure audiophile in all of us. My vision is clear, expand the premium product offerings from Paradigm, MartinLogan and Anthem globally, to make certain we increase everyone’s listening pleasure on an international scale that matches the uniqueness and power of our brands.”

Melchione holds an MBA from Fairleigh Dickinson University and a Bachelor of Science degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology. In his free time, he enjoys playing and collecting guitars, golf, fishing and is an avid jogger. Rocco will relocate to Toronto from his home in Irvine, California.

“Rocco’s leadership experience in global manufacturing and sales will help drive a culture that remains dedicated to offering unparalleled audio experiences,” says Paul Grove, senior VP of sales & marketing at Paradigm. “The team looks forward to a strong partnership resulting in continuing success for the brands.”
