Mitch Witten Joins SVS
Mitch Witten re-joins former colleague Gary Yacoubian as senior director, strategic development at audio manufacturer SVS.
Youngstown, OH - SVS, manufacturer of speakers, subwoofers and audio accessories, has hired Mitch Witten as senior director, strategic development.
Witten joins SVS with over 30 years of experience in the industry, including senior management roles at Harman International, Core Brands, Pioneer Electronics, Sonance, and Monster Products/Beats where he worked directly with SVS president Gary Yacoubian. Most recently, Witten developed product and market strategy for DTS.
“I’ve known Mitch Witten personally and professionally for over 25 years and have always admired his passion for great audio and his ability to create exceptional products,” Yacoubian says. “Mitch has a proven track record of bringing innovative audio technologies to market and understands the segment as well as anyone on the planet. With Mitch’s vision and expertise, SVS can push the envelope of audio innovation and product excellence to new levels.”
An avid music and film lover, Mitch put together his first audio system at the age of twelve and was smitten with the category. After earning a degree in economics at Harvard, Witten spurned a life of finance to work at Tech Hifi, a Boston area audio video retailer. Since then, his career in the consumer electronics industry has blossomed, and he will be instrumental as SVS expands its wireless audio, home theater and other offerings.
