WiFi HiFi is saddened to announce the passing of long-time industry member Phil Metford. He passed away on February 11, 2018.
Metford spent more than 40 years in the consumer technology industry, working in a variety of roles at companies like Atlantique, Stereo Den, Mitsubishi Canada, Toshiba Canada, Cantrex Group, and, most recently, AudioScape Canada. He founded a specialized training program AdvantageIQ in 2008, and published the C.E. Biz trade magazine from 2001-2007.
"Phil was admired and respected by his colleagues and customers alike, and will be greatly missed," says friend and retired industry veteran Allan Love. "Phil especially enjoyed CES each year and the opportunity to reconnect with all his many friends."
Metford is survived by his wife, son, and daughter, along with his sister and brother.
