BEAVERTON, Oregon -- Oct. 6, 2015 -- Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative, networked media systems, today announced that after 28 years in the industry, AV industry veteran Read Wineland is retiring. With his retirement, Michael Frank moves into the role of Eastern North America sales development director.


Vice President of Global Sales, Ron Camden, shared, "I've had the pleasure of working side by side with Read for the last 28 years, and his commitment to Biamp and enthusiasm for helping customers build their business has been awe-inspiring." Camden continued, stating, "Read's passion for quality audio -- whether with a guitar or DSP -- is something that cannot be taught. Both Biamp and the professional AV industry will miss Read's presence as he moves into the coveted retirement phase of life."

"There are two kinds of people in the AV industry: those who work for Biamp, and those who want to work at Biamp," shared Wineland. "Being an independent rep before I joined Biamp 20 years ago, I've worked for dozens of different companies, and I guarantee that no one appreciates their employees more than Biamp. It's been my honor to be part of such a great team and a significant piece of industry history."
