Our Leadership

Robert Kaufman

In 1974 fresh from college with a degree in marketing Robert Kaufman converted his longtime passion and hobby of electronics into a company that would be instrumental in forming the custom installation industry. Working from the garage of his parents’ home with then partner Brian Hagerty the pair created the first ever digital multi-room audio control system, becoming the pioneering company, Audio Command Systems.  

During Robert’s four and half decades at the helm of ACS, the company has continually led the custom installation industry, innovating and changing to meet the evolving needs of clients to weave the very best technology into their lives. Through thoughtful collaboration and educational efforts with architects, designers, and homeowners, the phrase Smarter by Design is in the DNA of every system ACS delivers. ACS sets the standards that makes the company one of the largest and most respected in the industry.

From our Long Island headquarters along with strategically located offices in Los Angeles, Boca Raton, and New York City, ACS is one of the few integrators with a truly national footprint. Robert’s philosophy is to surround himself with the brightest and most knowledgeable individuals in the home integration industry. Robert and partner Jonathan Flamm focus on leading with a single vision to provide the very best system designs and service to its clients. ACS continues to provide the most proven technology to our discerning clients who know ACS will be here for them today and in the future.

Jonathan Flamm
Jonathan Flamm, President Audio Command Systems, Inc. has been with the company for over forty years. Jonathan has a Master’s degree in degree in Industrial Design and attended Rhode Island School of Design and Stanford University. Early in his career with the company, Jonathan founded ACS’ California office. As well, for many years, as our industry developed, Jonathan designed product lines that the company produced for ACS clients as well as other AV integration companies.

Jonathan moved to New York in 1982. Along with Robert Kaufman, Jonathan has managed the company’s continued success and growth for four decades. Aside from continuing to grow and evolve , Jonathan constantly encourages ACS staff to always achieve “smarter by design” systems and maintain strong and honest relationships with the company’s residential and commercial clients.
Tom Clancy
Executive Vice President

Having started out as an installation technician, Tom quickly rose through the ranks to become a Project Supervisor, Senior Project Manager, Senior Vice President of Residential Systems, and ultimately landing in his current role as Executive Vice President. 
Aside from his executive management role within the company, Tom also works with homeowners, architects, designers and builders to integrate home lifestyle technology into their luxury residences. Tom firmly believes that modern technology needs to be simple to use, while keeping a keen eye on the design aesthetic and constantly adapting to remain on the forefront of today’s ever-changing technological advances. 

As the Executive Vice President for ACS, Tom provides day-to-day leadership, monitoring company performance through management information system reports, and evaluating the effectiveness of company operations and cross department boundaries to assure that ACS' goals are met, both in the near term and long terms. Tom over sees the ACS Management Team and works closely with them to develop strategies and policies to help ACS reach its goals by monitoring operational compliance with policies to ensure the success and future growth of ACS.

Great Working Experience

"It was a pleasure working with ACS. To be quite honest (as I always am…) working with ACS was the best experience working with any AV/Home Integration company in my entire tenure here at Hobbs. "

- Jerry Cobaugh, Hobbs Inc.

House in the Hamptons

"In today’s world, with frequent technology changes and the need or desire to integrate a number of functions, I loved working with ACS because they made the time to explain the options, price them appropriately, install them right, educate us to the proper use and follow-up as needed."

- Bob Hurst

Individualized Systems

"I more than whole-heartedly endorse Audio Command Systems and its technicians and especially Michael Pittman without whose invaluable design suggestions our system would not be as individualized and easily operable as it is. The entire installation experience and subsequent enjoyment was and is immeasurable.

- Marc Desiderio
