She has teased out some of the most innovative, disruptive concepts to impact the audio world in decades, many of them ‘firsts,’ by understanding how to cull hard and fast realities from ideas that started out as ethereal as fairy dust. Bridging the gap on a continuum that often has the visionary founder on one end and the pragmatic engineers on the other, Paley adds the vital part to a 3-part story of ingenuity, collaboration and enterprise.

A 15+ year veteran in consumer technology and the driving force behind some of the most innovative consumer products and embedded solutions in the audio/digital audio space, Paley has worked with global, emerging and disruptive brands such as JBL/Harman Kardon and Beats by Dre, to name a few. Her expertise: developing businesses from inception to scale that are focused on transforming markets to capture significant revenue and consumer mindshare.

For JBL, she created a new line of lifestyle products linked to a strategic partnership with Quiksilver Inc., one of the largest global youth lifestyle brands driving $40M of annualized growth. Paley was responsible for all aspects of the business from inception through launch including the business plan, product portfolio development, manufacturing, channel distribution strategy, marketing and PR.
