In the Spotlight: Gary Shapiro
Dealerscope: What have been some of your other career highlights and proudest achievements?
Shapiro: Defining and pushing home theater as a concept. We promoted the hell out of it; we spent money and time, and it became a concept that people understood and appreciated. That’s fueled a lot of the things we’ve done.
Then there’s the promotion of broadband, and the 15-year-old strategy on that that the U.S. should be great at broadband, although we’ve shifted from the wired to the wireless market. Getting more spectrum is something we initiated that I’m proud of, that President Obama signed this year.
