Rashid Skaf will take the helm of Biamp after the acquisition of the brand by Highlander Partners.
Biamp Systems announced that effective immediately, longtime AV industry executive Rashid Skaf is assuming the role of president, CEO, and co-chairman for the Beaverton, Oregon company. Matt Czyzewski, previous president and CEO of Biamp, will remain as executive vice president of technology. This appointment is concurrent with the completion of the acquisition of Biamp Systems by Highlander Partners from previous owner Lomar Corporation. Lomar will retain a minority investment in Biamp.
Skaf is best known for his 15 years at the helm of AMX. After a period as advisor to various investment groups, he joined Highlander Partners as a senior advisor. Highlander Partners is a Dallas-based private equity company with over $1.4 billion under management. Skaf joined Highlander to identify candidate technology companies and Biamp is the first investment borne from that initiative.
Skaf commented: “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to join and lead the Biamp team, one of the most successful professional audio management companies in the world. I have no doubt that together we will usher Biamp into an exciting new period of growth and industry leadership that will benefit the company and its employees and channel partners.”
