Nigris will head up the company as CEO, alongside a core group of original employees, from its Armonk, NY, headquarters
Autonomic has been re-acquired from SnapAV and will operate as an independent company. Michael de Nigris, founding member and former CEO, will lead the company as CEO, alongside a core group of original employees, from its Armonk, NY. headquarters.
Autonomic was founded in 2006 when digital music was in its infancy. Its first product made it possible to playback music via control system touch panels — complete with album art, browsing capability, and many of the music features that seem “standard” today. In 2009, it launched one of the industry’s first cloud-connected digital music servers, and since being acquired by SnapAV in 2016, has launched its successful eSeries product line and re-engineered the TuneBridge app.
“We are increasing our brand focus to provide dealers with the products needed to deploy an advanced listening experience on today’s most popular control systems,” said Michael de Nigris, new CEO of Autonomic. “By leveraging our current technology with a dedicated group of original employees, we can provide significant innovation that will empower dealers to do their best work ever.”
The Autonomic product line will continue to be sold at SnapAV, delivering whole-home audio solutions through snapav.com and local branches, as well as directly through Autonomic. Autonomic products will also continue to be supported by both SnapAV and Autonomic, ensuring the best dealer experience possible.
“We’re proud of the growth we’ve had with Autonomic — re-engineering the app and enhancing the product line to better serve customers has been a tremendous experience,” added Mike Jordan, VP of Audio for SnapAV. “We’re excited about Autonomic’s new path and our continued partnership, and we hope as an independent company it can continue to exceed expectations in music streaming and multi-room audio.”
