Fine Fellows

Published: Thursday, July 27, 2017

David Graham, Julie Jacobson, and Len Wallis, it has been announced, will be inducted into the CEDIA Fellows programme at CEDIA 2017.

The Fellows program honours long-time CEDIA members and volunteers who have contributed significantly to the association’s success. This year’s inductees will be recognised at the CEDIA Americas Awards celebration hosted on the USS Midway on Wednesday 6th September 2017.

“These CEDIA members have had a profound impact on our association, and we are incredibly thankful for their dedication, generosity of time and knowledge, and significant contributions to the association,” said Dennis Erskine, CEDIA Chairman.

David is MD of Grahams Hi-Fi in London, one of the oldest established specialist Hi-Fi retailers in the UK, and a founding member of CEDIA UK. He has over 35-years of experience within the industry, over 30 of which have focussed on custom installation. Grahams has been a regular entrant to the CEDIA EMEA Awards and has won numerous categories over the years, including best integrated home four times.

David was Chairman of the CEDIA UK Board of Directors from 1998-2000 and subsequently served on the Board as Membership Chair, where he was responsible for helping to drive membership throughout Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. David regularly lectures within the industry on various aspects of home automation and devotes much of his time to keeping abreast of technological changes; he also serves as a CEDIA Certified presenter and subject matter expert.

Julie is co-founder of 23-year-old EH Media (formerly EH Publishing), publisher of CE Pro, Electronic House, Commercial Integrator, and Security Sales & Integration. Currently, she spends most of her time writing, speaking, and rabble-rousing for CE Pro in the areas of IoT, home automation, networked AV, and the business of home systems integration.

Julie received the CEA TechHome Leadership Award in 2014, and currently serves on the CEDIA Technology Council. A long-time champion of custom electronics, she frequently promotes the channel to analysts, investors, home builders, retailers, and mass-market consumer technology providers.
A native San Antonian, Julie majored in economics at the University of Michigan, spent a year abroad at Cambridge University, and earned an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin.

Len has spent his working life in audio, starting as a salesperson for MS Sound in 1970. He opened Len Wallis Audio (LWA) in 1978 as a one-man show, and is still very involved in the daily management of the company.

Len is a long-time supporter of CEDIA. LWA was a founding member of CEDIA Australia in 1995, and Len served on the local Board for many years, and served as Chairman twice. He was also a presenter at numerous Australian CEDIA Expos.

LWA was the first company outside of the US to receive the prestigious CEDIA ‘Dealer of the Year’ Award in 2001. That same year, Len received the CEDIA Lifetime Achievement Award. LWA projects have won over 35 local CEDIA Awards.

Tickets for the CEDIA Awards celebrations are available through the CEDIA 2017 registration system. CEDIA 2017 will be hosted at the San Diego Convention Centre 5th – 9th September, 2017.
