AudioEngine opened in September of 2002, the result
of a partnership between Porte, Rex Recker, Joe Vagnoni, Bob Giammarco, Tom
Goldblatt and Brian Wick.
"We had a great run with Michael," says Bob Giammarco. "He's a brilliant
entrepreneur who really understands our industry and knows how to launch
successful companies in the post production space. We wish him all the
best with his future endeavors."
