Despite Company Move, Sidney Harman to Stay in DC
While Harman International announced this week that it will move its executive offices to Connecticut from Washington, D.C., the company’s legendary founder won’t be making the move.
Sidney Harman, who founded Harman precursor Harman-Kardon in 1952, plans to remain in Washington, according to the Washbizblog on the Washington Post Web site. Harman, now the company’s chairman, lives in Washington’s Cleveland Park district with his wife, Congresswoman Jane Harman (D-Calif.)
The company announced yesterday that it will move about 30 employees to Stamford, Conn., where they will work under CEO Dinesh Paliwal.
