Technology trade body CEDIA has appointed Daryl Friedman as Global President and CEO. Assuming the role on November 29, Friedman lists a variety of nonprofit leadership roles, including a stint with the technical wing of the Recording Academy, best known for the GRAMMY Awards.

"Having represented audio professionals for most of my career, I've long admired CEDIA for championing immersive audio experiences in the home," said Friedman. "Now, as our homes become the hub for work, education, entertainment, and wellness, CEDIA members are the indispensable partners for making our homes more comfortable and connected. This is truly CEDIA's moment, and I am honoured to join the team at this exciting time."

Friedman says his interest in technology has been reinforced by his work with the Academy's Producers and Engineers Wing. In 2014, the Wing endorsed CEDIA’s High Resolution Audio Training Program for Home Technology Professionals.

“The CEDIA Board was keenly aware of the need to attract a visionary leader,” says Board and Executive Search Committee member, Alex Capecelatro. “CEDIA plays an important role for many of our businesses, but the landscape has shifted dramatically over the last few years. We’re all adjusting to a post-pandemic world; Daryl can help us usher in this new era for our industry.”
