The Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) announced on April 30, 2014 that Mike Fasulo, president and COO of Sony Electronics Inc., will deliver the 2014 CEDIA EXPO opening keynote address.

“Being a completely vertical company, from content creation to consumer consumption, Sony’s unique industry reach will provide real insights for home technology professionals,” said Dave Pedigo, CEDIA senior director of Technology & Learning. “We are talking about a company that goes beyond producing products for our industry. Sony is leading the creation of content to meet the demands of 4K and enhanced audio specifications. They are able to provide a full-picture perspective that we have not seen or heard before at CEDIA EXPO.”

Sony was one of the key manufacturers who exhibited at the first CEDIA EXPO held in Amelia Island in 1990 and has played a pivotal role in the custom install industry since then.
“Sony is committed to investing in the home entertainment and sound categories, especially at CEDIA EXPO to bring exciting and immersive experiences to consumers, from the professional lens to the living room,” Fasulo said.

Fasulo joined Sony in 1984 as a junior financial analyst, serving in several positions and disciplines throughout his tenure, including executive vice president of Consumer Sales.  More recently, Fasulo led the Transformation of SEL’s commercial investment program which saved hundreds of millions of dollars and revolutionized the sales organization to a consumer focused execution team.

 The opening keynote will take place on Sept. 10, 2014 at 5:30 p.m. in the Four Seasons Ballroom of the Colorado Convention Center. Registration for CEDIA EXPO opens June 4. Contact for more information.
