Origin Acoustics Chairman Jeremy Burkhardt will be inducted to the CEDIA Fellows programme at CEDIA Expo 2019. The CEDIA Fellows programme honours long-time CEDIA members and volunteers who have contributed significantly to the association's success.

Burkhardt is also well known as former CEO, architect, and co-founder of SpeakerCraft.

"Jeremy's legacy in the industry has been anything but quiet, he's pushed the boundaries in product development with a constant eye on balancing the needs of dealers and end users," explains David Humphries, CEDIA Chairman.

Having begun his career as a custom installer, he turned his attention to providing real world audio solutions with SpeakerCraft, quickly becoming the industry's largest architectural speaker manufacturer and brand. SpeakerCraft was sold to Nortek for $58M in 2004.

Origin Acoustics was launched in 2014, with his original SpeakerCraft business partners.

"Few can doubt Jeremy's foresight and vision, he's helped shape and propel the architectural speaker category," said Robert Keeler, CEDIA Senior Director Sales, Sponsorship, and Partnerships. "Ultimately, his passion has built two brands that have incredible loyalty among their dealer base and have earned the love of homeowners around the world."

Burkhardt served on the CEDIA board from 2006 until 2008. He will be recognised at the CEDIA Expo Opening Keynote hosted at the Colorado Convention Center on September 11 2019.

CEDIA Expo runs between September 10 -14, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.
