Michael Custer replaces outgoing CEO Larry Renaud, who is retiring end of this month
Chatsworth Products (CPI), a global manufacturer of voice, data and security, and service solutions, has named Michael Custer as its new president, replacing Larry Renaud, who is retiring at the end of September.
Custer, who first joined CPI in 1996, most recently held the position of executive vice president of global sales and marketing with additional executive oversight responsibilities for international operations, supply chain and auality.
Moving forward, CPI's employee-owners and customers can expect to benefit from the yearly growth and expansion that CPI has experienced this year.
The company said with the continuity in senior leadership, the Chatsworth Products management team is energised with the opportunity to extend its core competency to sense and rapidly respond to the changing needs of technology end users.
"CPI has remained fiercely independent through an extended period of industry consolidation and has preserved a uniquely strong best-in-class market position," Custer stated. "We've earned that position through an unmatched combination of high-availability solutions through our distribution partners and high-touch customised solutions that always start with collaboration and the goal of delivering demonstrable benefits to our customers."
Custer said CPI believes that technology decisions are business decisions and the company looks to a bright future with its new leadership, which is committed to seize every new opportunity.
