Chris Regan appointed chair of Professional Audio Manufacturers Alliance board of directors

Chris Regan has been appointed chair of the Professional Audio Manufacturers Alliance (PAMA) board of directors for a two-year term.

Elected as chair-elect of the board in 2018, Regan replaces Sennheiser’s Greg Beebe, who remains on the board as a director. Harman’s Karam Kaul is the new chair-elect.

Regan brings 15 years of industry experience to the role, having served on the founding team at Crowley and Tripp Microphones as product manager; as VP of sales and operations, North America for Audio Processing Technology; and his current position as co-founder and president of PAMA member company RF Venue, a developer and manufacturer of patented antenna and RF communications products for wireless microphones and in-ear monitor systems. He holds two U.S. patents and received his MBA from Babson College.   

“PAMA has made significant progress in recent years towards our common purpose of promoting high-quality professional audio,” said Beebe. “Chris has proven skills and a devotion to PAMA’s mission that have played a major role in that progress.” 

“As a PAMA Board member and chair-elect,” Regan added, “I have witnessed the great value of cooperation and dialog between often competitive companies that share a commitment and a progressive vision of fostering a stronger industry. While challenged by the high standard of leadership set by Greg Beebe, I am honoured to now lead the Board as we continue to grow the organisation and extend its positive impact.”  

“We have great new ideas to launch, we need to tell our story”
