Kevan Morris, Executive Vice President, Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. passed away on Saturday, June 26, 2021. He leaves behind his wife, Mary, two sons, Devon and Ryan, and many extended family members and friends.
Morris was a well-respected consumer electronics industry veteran having begun his affiliation with Pioneer in 1984. He quickly worked his way up the ladder, having started out as a Product Specialist at NLS Marketing, a rep firm in Bellevue, Washington then moving into the role of District Sales Manager covering car electronics in the Pacific Northwest territory just two years later.
In his thirty-five years with the company, Morris held numerous sales and management positions in Pioneer’s car electronics, home electronics, and television divisions. He landed the role of Executive Vice President in May of 2011, a position, Pioneer says, he served with distinction.
