The AV Industry Loses a Giant

The AV Community Mourns Bob Simpson
The AV Industry Loses a Giant

Bob Simpson touched thousands of people's lives around the world. A true founding father of the AV industry, he leaves a legacy which will be unsurpassed. A business leader, educator, innovator, and author; Bob was a pioneer, an absolute character and a true gentleman. 

Bob’s family values and ethos were at the heart of Electrosonic, the company he co-founded in 1964 with Denis Naisbitt and Michael Ray. Their work was endlessly innovative in designing and creating products and solutions which pushed the boundaries of what was thought to be achievable. 

Bob’s passion and creativity will live in all of us who had the privilege of working with him, whether at Electrosonic, or through the thousands of projects he created and influenced around the world. His education sessions at ISE were always standing-room-only, and his eloquence and knowledge inspired all who heard him speak. Bob’s commitment to the industry never lessened, even after his retirement.

We at AVIXA honor and give our eternal thanks to a man who gave so much to so many of us around the world. His work will continue in all of us who knew him and we will continue to pay it forward as he would have.
