Hal Kneller is leaving iBiquity Digital after 18 months.
He was the international business development director for the technology developer. He previously worked at Harris Broadcast as senior manager of business development, digital radio and of public radio initiatives and also as a station owner and chief engineer.
Kneller originally had been hired to replace Perry Priestly after Priestly resigned.
His last day will be Monday, July 20. “IBiquity has been restructuring during this year to bring costs into line with revenues as have many companies these days,” Kneller said in a statement to Radio World about his layoff. With his departure, Scott Stull, vice president of international business development, takes on more international duties and John Schneider still handles Latin America.
IBiquity confirmed Kneller’s impending departure. It said 115 people are now employed with the company, spread out among its Maryland, New Jersey and Detroit offices. In January the company laid off 22 people and restructured some duties in an effort to conserve resources.
