Changes at GN Otometrics


GN Otometics is growing again with the acquisition of Audio Electronics, Inc., a Texas-based distributor of audiometric and vestibular equipment. David Dorris, Ph.D., who most recently was president of Audio Electronics, will remain at the helm of the organization, as general manager, and will report to Dan McNulty, general manager of GN Otometrics. “Otometrics’ acquisition of Audio Electronics is consistent with our overall strategy of securing a viable route to market for our innovative products,” said McNulty. “During the last three years of David’s leadership, Audio Electronics has modernized its operations and shown a strong commitment to improving their level of service to hearing and vestibular care customers. With this acquisition, Otometrics is continuing to invest in the future.” Audio Electronics will continue to service all brands of equipment, in Texas, and will discontinue the sale of all William Demant products after February 2, 2013. Moving forward, Audio Electronics will sell the following brands: GN Otometrics (AURICAL, ICS, MADSEN), Acoustic Systems, AudioScan, Benson Medical Instruments, Bio-logic, Intelligent Hearing Systems, Otodynamics and Vivosonic. Audio Electronics will maintain its operation in Austin, with the sales, service and office staff remaining in place. A wholly owned subsidiary of Otometrics, the company will continue to operate under the name Audio Electronics. RS
