AES Names Josh Reiss 2022 President
The Audio Engineering Society has named Josh Reiss as the Society’s president for 2022. Reiss’ term of service began on Jan. 1.
“I am excited to have Josh Reiss take the reins and help lead the AES. He brings a deep knowledge of audio technology coupled with an appetite for innovation,” said Jonathan Wyner, outgoing AES president. “He’s been a board-of-directors member as president-elect during the past year, and also has served as a chair of committees within AES over many years. Josh has proven his abilities and demonstrated a passion for the Society that will serve the AES well in the year to come.”
“The AES understands and embraces the need to adapt to ever-evolving audio technologies and to change in the world at large,” Reiss said. “My immediate predecessors have faced unprecedented challenges over the past two years with courage and vision. The AES is on a firm footing to continue to advance the science of audio and its application while improving inclusivity and diversity in our community and industry by encouraging talent, creativity and innovation. It is my high honor to follow them in service to the AES membership as President of the Society.”
