Indianapolis, Ind. -The Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) has appointed Helge Fischer of Jamo US Inc. as chair of its 2006 Manufacturers' Council.


CEDIA's Manufacturers' Council works closely with the association's members to enhance relationships between electronic systems contractors and manufacturers. The council strives to promote manufacturer members through the annual CEDIA EXPO as well as through CEDIA University and other CEDIA or industry -related initiatives.

Fischer, a native of Denmark, launched the U.S. division of Jamo in 1979. He has served as the division's managing director since its founding.
