WARREN FUSON - VP of CHAPTER DEVELOPMENT
E-mail: Warren Fuson
Warren has been singing since he was a kid but it wasn’t until 1984 when he discovered Barbershop with Raleigh’s Sir Walter chorus - and never looked back.
After a 3-year hiatus to take an overseas assignment in Japan, he returned to the area and joined the RTP chapter. Board positions have included everything except Secretary & Treasurer (says he can’t add and can’t write). He is currently the Immediate Past President and Show Chair and was Chapter BOTY in 2011.
Warren has served as Dean of the Carolinas District Leadership academy for the past 3 years and is a certified Leadership Academy instructor for Music & Performance. He is also a Contest Administrator Candidate in the Society Judging program.
He has sung with many quartets over the years and is currently the Bass in Never Home 4. He is also a 20+ year member of the NC Harmony Brigade.
Professionally, Warren spent his career in the telecommunications industry starting out as an engineer then moving into management. He spent 3 years as an expat running his company’s Engineering department for their Japanese subsidiary in Tokyo. He then returned to the states to run one of his company’s R&D labs then moved on to doing International business development in Asia, Latin America and Europe, retiring in 2003 as Director of International Business Development (Asia).
Wanting to give something back, Warren started and ran a local nonprofit focused on providing technology assistance to other nonprofits while helping unemployed techies get the training and experience needed to get back into the workplace. He is now retired but still serves on the board of Public Information Networks, an RTP-based technology nonprofit.
