Robert Vieira, the former senior global product manager for home audio brands Onkyo, Integra and Pioneer, is returning to those brands as the senior director of AVR brands.
Vieira left briefly earlier this year, but now returns in a new role where he is responsible for every aspect of the multiple AVR brands worldwide when it comes to past, current and future development across all channels for Onkyo, Integra and Pioneer, brands under parent Premium Audio Company.
According to Onkyo, Vieira will develop roadmaps, functions, and technical specifications as well as take new products to production and conduct key account meetings and trainings. He will also serve as a press and event spokesperson, the company says.
“The entire team is thrilled to see Rob Vieira back in his new elevated role as Senior Director for all brands,” says Tommy Jacobs, president of Premium Audio Company, Americas. “Our dealers can expect to see heightened marketing initiatives, greater product innovation, and ease-of-doing business improvements soon.”
During his time at Onkyo, Vieira was named “The Professor” for his technical product knowledge, music enthusiasm and support for dealers, the company says.
