Bruce Franklin, North American Sales Director, Triad Franklin began in the business at the side of his dad, Al. Ultimately he took over Al Franklin’s Musical World and successfully ran the two-store Connecticut operation for over three decades. (The fact that the store was originally called ABC’s Wide World of Entertainment and was slated to become the first national CE chain is a great story for another time.) For the past 10 years Franklin has steadily risen in the ranks at Triad, which has become a favored loudspeaker brand for CE pros nationwide.
