MyerEmco’s Yacoubian Named CEA Vice-Chair
The CEA announced Tuesday that it has named MyerEmco President and COO Gary Yacoubian to the position of vice-chair on its executive board. Yacoubian becomes the first CE retailer executive to ever serve in such a position.
Yacoubian has been on the CEA board since 2006, and previously was chairman of the group’s PARA division. He was already chairman of the CEA’s Division Executive Board, a position he will continue in along with his new duties.
MyerEmco, which recently called off a merger with Harvey Electronics, was named one of four winners in Dealerscope’s Retail Excellence Awards last month.
