In a related announcement Mr. Henry Cheng has been named Vice President of Engineering. Mr. Cheng was previously AuraSound Vice President of Operations, and has extensive engineering leadership experience including as Senior Engineering Director at Flextronics.

Mr. Randy Waynick has been named Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales. Mr. Waynick has 27 years of experience in the consumer electronics industry, with a consistent track record of creating strategies, forming alliances, and growing sales & profits.

"Today's executive appointments are a continuation of our commitment over the past 18 months to build a world-class AuraSound executive team," stated Mr. Harald Weisshaupt, AuraSound CEO and President. "The demand for our products continues to increase across all product segments, and Andreas will ensure that we optimize our sales revenue by maximizing our production including at our new factory in Wuhan, China. He will also lead our ongoing manufacturing and logistic cost reduction activities, key for us to continue to be profitable. Randy will play an equally critical role in enabling us to broaden our customer base, build our own brand, and increase our global sales revenue and profit. He has already enabled our company to engage with several new and well known potential strategic customers. I am very excited to have Henry and Pete continue their significant contributions to AuraSound as they move to their new roles. Continuing to introduce new industry leading products quickly and growing our Asia Pacific business, especially in Greater China, are AuraSound strategic focus areas.
