Frank Gordon has returned to once again take up the reins as CEO of High End Systems Inc., the Austin, TX-based manufacturer of moving lights.
Gordon originally joined High End in March 1998 and, under his leadership as CEO, the company experienced two of its most profitable years ever. He left High End six months ago.
Lowell Fowler, founder and chairman of High End Systems, says, “Frank was our first CEO from outside our industry. He showed us a lot about the business of business as a seasoned professional with a very solid background. We showed him what we like to do and he helped us become more profitable doing it. In that process, he built great respect for, and from, our customers and the other players in our unique business. I think he truly learned to like what we do, too. High End is happy Frank's back and we look forward to his positive contributions.”
Gordon says he's excited about rejoining High End after a six-month absence: “Being back in the saddle at HES feels like coming home. I love this industry and the people at High End Systems, and I firmly believe that despite the economy, we are like a thoroughbred horse that is a contender in every race. With the great team we've got at High End and the commitment to succeed, I have no doubt we'll be out in front and will continue to do great things. I would like to especially thank John Wiseman and the entire management team for their confidence in me, and I greatly look forward to our future together.”
