Bluffdale-based Listen Technologies Corp., a provider of assistive listening and tour systems, has announced that Maile Keone has been named president of the company. She will be responsible for executing Listen Technologies’ business plan, the company said in a release.
Keone, a technology industry sales and marketing expert, previously served as the company’s chief revenue officer. She replaces company founder Russ Gentner, who remains CEO. Tracy Bathurst has been promoted to senior vice president and remains as chief technology officer.
The company said that the moves are part of a plan to give Gentner more time to focus on strategic planning, business development and partnerships. Keone, with support from Bathurst and the executive team, will focus on running the day-to-day operations of the business.
“It has been an honor to serve as president of Listen Technologies and I am incredibly proud of the growth we have experienced as an organization,” said Gentner. “We will continue to develop industry leading products, deliver outstanding customer service and forge strong industry and channel partnerships. Maile has been instrumental in this success, increasingly taking on the responsibilities of president and executing our business plans.”
Prior to joining Listen Technologies in 2013, Keone held leadership positions in sales and marketing, operations and employee experience at fast-growing technology companies.
“I am excited and honored to serve in the role of president at Listen Technologies,” said Keone. “Russ’s ambition and visionary leadership lays the foundation for our future and challenges us to identify new ways to excel in product innovation and delivering exceptional customer experiences. I am extremely proud of the passion and daily execution in our organization and look forward to taking firm hold of the opportunities in front of us. Our work makes a difference in the lives of those who hear better because of the solutions we create and service we provide.”
