Audio industry veteran Paul DiComo was honored in CE Pro’s first-ever Masters class back in 2013.

From January 2014 on, DiComo, with partner Al Ballard, founded CE Marketing Pros, a marketing agency helping established and start-up Consumer Electronics brands build market share and consumer awareness. 

DiComo was well known throughout the consumer electronics industry for his keen intellect, his passion for his work, but most of all for his larger-than-life personality and love of life. His laughter was infectious and his outgoing personality made him a natural fit for his many roles in the industry. As he travelled the U.S. and the world, DiComo gained the respect of many, and would freely share his love and passion for music and fine audio products.

He is survived by his beloved wife and life partner, Susan Putnam, and their sons Michael and Gregory as well as two grandchildren. 

In lieu of flowers, contributions to MMRF (Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation) would be appreciated (https://www.themmrf.org).
