ProCo says Goodbye to Charlie Wicks

Charlie Wicks, founder and CEO of Pro Co Sound, Inc. passed away on the morning of March 11th, 2010 due to complications related to his battle with cancer.

Charlie, 65, was an icon in the audio industry. He formed Pro Co in the early 1970’s to manufacture P.A. speakers and shifted to manufacturing cables and interconnect products in 1974. From that time, he successfully led the company over the next four decades to become a global presence in the audio industry.

Charlie loved education and was always extremely supportive of SynAudCon.  He was a natural teacher among other things.  I loved hearing his philosophy on teaching – an area he had a lot of insight.

We will miss positive attitude, his encouraging words and his insights. I truly believe he is one guy who had a way of making everyone feel special.
