HD radio developer iBiquity Digital expands automotive team

iBiquity Digital Corporation has named Gereon Joachim senior manager, OEM business development, with responsibility for iBiquity's efforts with European automakers.

The firm also named Richard Zeichner manager for dealer programs, and added Erin Burns as a sales engineer. Zeichner was formerly national sales manager for Visteon. Burns previously worked for Siemens VDO.

Robert Struble, president and CEO, said that iBiquity is “working with virtually every OEM manufacturer.” He added, “"Most of these manufacturers have committed to adding HD radio technology in several of their product lines over the next few years. BMW is offering this feature today, and, an additional eight brands will join BMW in offering HD radio receivers on their vehicles in the next eight to 36 months bringing the total to some 49 models."
