SALT LAKE CITY, March 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO) today announced the appointments of three new executives, who were formerly associated with VCON Video Conferencing, a company acquired by ClearOne in late-February.

"In addition to VCON's world-class technology and intellectual property, the VCON acquisition brings ClearOne a wealth of knowledge and experience by retaining VCON's management team," said Zee Hakimoglu, Chairman and CEO of ClearOne.

As an industry veteran, his previous experience includes managing national and international sales, marketing and business development operations for Sharp Corporation and Philips. Along with Mr. Ben Natan, he was also one of the founders of C-nario, as well as its VP of Sales and Strategic Planning. In his new role, he will be responsible for worldwide sales of all ClearOne video products, including video conferencing, multimedia streaming and digital signage products. Additionally, Mr. Bahar will have international sales responsibility for the entire line of ClearOne audio solutions.
