Frank Gordon has returned to take up the position of CEO at High End Systems Inc. Gordon originally joined High End Systems in March 1998 and under his leadership as CEO, High End experienced two of its most profitable years ever. With the slowdown in the lighting industry and the worldwide economy as well, High End's management team felt it was time for Gordon to come back and "work his magic".

Lowell Fowler, founder and chairman of High End Systems, says: "Frank was our first CEO from outside our industry. He showed us a lot about the business of business as a seasoned professional with a very solid background. We showed him what we like to do and he helped us become more profitable doing it. In that process, he built great respect for (and from) our customers and the other players in our unique business. I think he truly learned to like what we do, too. High End is happy Frank's back and we look forward to his positive contributions."

Gordon is excited about rejoining High End after a six month absence. "Being back in the saddle at HES feels like coming home," Gordon says. "I love this industry and the people at High End Systems, and I firmly believe that despite the economy we are like a thoroughbred horse that is a contender in every race. With the great team we've got at High End and the commitment to succeed, I have no doubt we'll be out in front and will continue to do great things. I would like to especially thank John Wiseman and the entire management team for their confidence in me, and I greatly look forward to our future together."
