WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., June 30, 2014 — Chatsworth Products (CPI), a 100 percent employee-owned global manufacturer of voice, data and security products and service solutions, has moved into a new leadership era, focusing on global growth, customer satisfaction and innovative product development.
Since its inception in 1991, CPI’s desire to provide infrastructure products of unparalleled design and quality has driven the company to embrace the constant advancements innate of the technology sector, particularly in the advancing field of data center management.
Continuing this forward momentum, in June, CPI welcomed Michael Custer as its new President, replacing Larry Renaud, who will remain CEO until his retirement in September. Michael Custer, who first joined CPI in 1996, most recently held the position of Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing with additional executive oversight responsibilities for International Operations, Supply Chain & Quality.
