Changes at Manley Laboratories

Last week it was revealed that David Manley has resigned as president of Manley Laboratories and has assigned his total shares in the company to EveAnna Manley as part of an agreement signed June 10, 1999. EveAnna Manley has officially assumed the duties of president, CEO, and sole owner of Manley Laboratories, Inc. A press release states that David Manley is no longer associated or affiliated with Manley Laboratories, Inc., and that EveAnna Manley has been de facto operating CEO of the company since David Manley's departure in 1996.

The company, which claims to have grown 75% over the last three years, manufactures vacuum-tube products under the Manley and Langevin brand names for both the consumer and pro-audio markets. Products developed by Manley's design team, headed by Craig Hutchison and assisted by Baltazar Hernandez, include the Manley Voxbox, the Stingray Integrated Amplifier, and the Manley Massive Passive Stereo Equalizer. Stereophile's John Atkinson made use of the transparent-sounding Manley ELOP (ELectro-OPtical) tube limiter during the mixing of the magazine's recent Rendezvous CD.
