Mark Cohen
President and CEO

  A long time industry professional, Mr. Cohen started early. While getting his degree at California State University, he co-founded a music store and was plucked from it 2 years later by CBS (Fender Musical Instruments division).This also interrupted his law school education. After 5 years at Fender, and turning the company around from its purchase by CBS (he developed over 100 new products for them), Mr. Cohen joined SAE to start a professional products division, and was later promoted to handle the consumer electronics sales as well. Next he was on the start-up team at Fostex, and helped revolutionize the recording industry. While at Fostex, Mr. Cohen helped develop many new products, and is known for the technological breakthrough allowing digital audio tape recorders to sync to film & video using SMPTE time code. After about 12 years at Fostex, he started another company based on parallel computer processing… a fully automated digitally controlled mixer. Leaving Tactile Technology, Mr. Cohen started working more in the computer industry; both hardware and software. These included Quad Research (streaming media storage), Touchtone Software (IBM AS400 software and Oracle integration), Unibrain (1394 Firewire and Network Attached Storage Servers), Intelligent Audio Systems (automated room acoustical correction), 2Contract (contract management software and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance), and lately at Tymphany Corporation, a VC funded start-up with new transducer technology founded by the CEO and co-founder of Cirrus Logic. His customers have included virtually all types from Circuit City/Best Buy to Apple, Porsche, Nissan, Microsoft, Sharp, Sony, Sharper Image, direct sales via the web, and many others.
