CE Pro joins URC and others in the home-technology community in mourning the death of Marguerita Kiser, a 25-year veteran in the custom-electronics channel. She passed away after a brief illness.
Marguerita started her career in the custom installation industry in 1989 as director of international and OEM sales for Xantech, now a unit of Nortek's Core Brands. In 2004 she joined URC as west coast sales manager.
In a brief statement today, URC noted:
Memorial services and other details have not yet been decided. Additional information will be forthcoming when available. URC asks that we all please respect the privacy and the heartache that her family and husband Steve are suffering right now and refrain from contacting them.
On a personal note, CE Pro's parent company EH Publishing was co-founded by myself and Ken Moyes in 1994. Ken was previously CEO of a large security distribution company, where I worked in the marketing department. We came to know Marguerita just as she was joining Xantech in 1989. I enjoyed our association ever since, always looking forward to her bright smile.
Please share your memories of Marguerita in the comments section below.
We will be happy to post images as well. Send them to me at email@example.com.
