IN BRIEF

Ex-Nike Exec Trip Randall
to Head Denon
AUDIO MANUFACTURER Denon has named Trip Randall as its
new president. The company calls the appointment part of its
plan to revitalize its marketing, boost direct-to-consumer sales,
bolster existing sales channels, and introduce new products.
Randall brings more than two decades' worth of experience
at Nike, where he drove the company's e-commerce strategy
and led Nike's Running business, launching industry-changing
innovations, and driving a $1.4 billion business domestically.
According to the company, Randall's extensive background
elevating enthusiast brands to new audiences is a natural fit for
Denon, which has crafted audio components for more than 110
years. At Nike, Randall held senior leadership roles across multiple major functions. He led and participated in teams driving
Nike's integrated brand, product and go-to-market strategies
across the direct-to-consumer and wholesale marketplace and
also oversaw the brand's geography-based digital commerce
businesses globally during a period of explosive growth.
" Finding the right individual to lead the iconic Denon brand
was not an easy task, but after months of searching, we are

convinced Trip is the ideal match, " says Bart Muller, COO of
Sound United, parent company to Denon. " He has a great
understanding of how to balance direct-to-consumer expansion while strengthening the ties we have with the specialty
retailer market. "
