Los Angeles-based private equity firm Transom Capital Group has named John Maier as CEO of the newly independent Bose Professional.

John MaierMaier spent the past several years as an operating partner for Transom, overseeing businesses including Mackie, having previously been CEO of Blue Microphones, a designer of award winning microphones, headphones and accessories. He helped leverage the company’s professional recording studio heritage into the consumer electronics space and grew the company tenfold during his tenure, eventually selling the business to Logitech.

Before Blue Microphones, Maier was CEO of TC Group Americas where he helped the Danish company build Tannoy, LabGruppen, TC Electronic and Lake, tripling revenue. Prior to TC, Maier held several leadership positions in the audio industry, including Alesis, Guitar Center and Sound Marketing. He is one of a select few who has managed companies included in the Inc 5000 Fastest Growing Companies for ten consecutive years.

‘We have known John for more than ten years and watched him grow Blue Microphones from a small professional microphone company to a global professional and consumer electronics brand,’ says Transom Capital Managing Partner, Russ Roenick. ‘He also helped us transform Loud Audio from a collection of unconnected brands to the now thriving Mackie.’

‘I am thrilled to be joining the team at the new Bose Professional,’ Maier says. ‘I’ve been a user, salesman and overall admirer of the business and products since early in my career, and I see a great future ahead. I’m in the ideal position of knowing the brand and market well, while still bringing an outsider’s perspective to the business. I look forward to helping Bose Professional and Transom achieve all their goals.

Maier earned both his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Business Administration from California Lutheran University, and has served as board member or advisor to many for profit and non-profits over the course of his career.
