CEDIA announced today that it has accepted the resignation of Global President/CEO Vin Bruno, effective immediately. The organization says that Vin has resigned in order to focus on new opportunities in the residential and commercial technology industries,.

Over the next two weeks, the CEDIA board will meet to create a strategy and timeline for appointing a new president/CEO. Until then, Tabatha O’Connor, CEDIA’s current COO, will take over Vin’s duties as president/CEO. She has served as CEDIA’s COO since 2015. She has worked for CEDIA for 15 years, having previously held the post of senior director of human resources and finance.

Bruno joined CEDIA in September 2015 from his role as marketing director for Crestron Electronics. Prior to this time, he was vice president for VCOM International Multimedia Corporation, a distributor of professional AV and digital equipment.

Earlier this year, CEDIA made waves in the industry when it announced earlier this year it had sold its show to Emerald Expositions.
