Premier Mounts looked to Extron Electronics to find its next company president, tapping 25-year-veteran Lee Dodson to lead the company. Dodson comes to Premier after serving as Extron's vice president of marketing.

As president of Premier Mounts, Dodson will spearhead the company's effort to serve the pro AV channel and targeted retail organizations, working in tandem with Premier Mounts' founder and CEO. Len Dozierservice, according to company officials.

Actively involved in the pro AV industry, Dodson twice served as the elected chairman of the InfoComm International Manufacturers Council and board of governors, and once on the InfoComm executive committee.

In his most recent position at Extron, Dodson oversaw the company's marketing activities in the United States, Europe, and Asia, and was instrumental in continuing to build Extron's market share. Under Dodson's direction, the company expanded its product and services offerings and implemented a suite of customer-focused marketing and educational resources, including Extron's website and training programs. He began his career at Extron as director of marketing in 1999.

Prior to Extron, Dodson spent 12 years at Sony Electronics, holding various technology marketing roles, including national product/marketing manager for projectors and monitors, and market development manager for Sony Broadcast.

"Through his roles at Extron and Sony, as well as the InfoComm International Manufacturers Council and InfoComm executive committee, Lee has helped shape the pro AV industry," said Dozier in a statement. "He brings a strong passion for serving his customers in the pro AV channel and undoubtedly will move Premier Mounts forward with his leadership, enthusiasm, and efficiency for pioneering new products in the marketplace."

Dozier added that with Dodson in place, he will be able to focus his attention on shaping the company's overall product vision and creating solutions that address customers' challenging mounting requirements.
