Soul Honors Wayman, Huppin’s
Soul Electronics, the company behind the Soul by Ludacris line of headphones, handed out two prestigious awards at International CES last month. It named industry legend and “founder of CES” Jack Wayman its Soul Man of the Year, and Huppin’s its Retailer of the Year.
Soul CEO Bob Bonefant and Ludacris himself hosted a press conference to present the awards to Wayman and Huppin’s CEO Murray Huppin.
“Jack’s lifelong commitment to the Consumer Electronics industry, an industry that means so much to so many people and so many generations, has made him the obvious choice for our inaugural Soul Man of the Year Award,” Bonefant said in a statement. “We were honored to have him in our presence during one of the biggest shows ever!”
Bonefant added that Huppin’s was Soul’s first retailer, one that has “continually expressed strong confidence in our ability to deliver quality products and have stood behind us as a company and emerging brand.”
