“We are thrilled to have doug join us in this new role,” says Andy Oxenhorn, president, JL Audio. “His extensive sales and management experience, along with his vast knowledge of the audio business, will be instrumental in further developing our home audio division and expanding our ongoing commitment to the specialist dealer channel.”

Further, there is a commitment to add such resources as may be necessary to expand and extend JL Audio's product offerings. It is particularly satisfying to me that JL Audio is a U.S. manufacturer employing over 400 people in its Miramar, Fla., headquarters,” says Henderson.
