Ibiquity Beefs Up Automotive Team

To meet what it says are increasing demands for support of HD Radio implementation in new vehicles, Ibiquity Digital has expanded its automotive staff.
Jeff McGannon, Ibiquity’s vice president for OEM, said more auto companies and dealers want the technology, in order to remain competitive.
Ibiquity’s automotive group, based in Pontiac, Mich., has hired Gereon Joachim as senior manager OEM business development. Joachim is based in Cologne, Germany, and will head Ibiquity’s efforts with European automakers.
Joachim has responsibility for support of Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Volvo and European-based suppliers like Bosch and Siemens.
The IBOC developer added a former national sales manager for Visteon, Richard Zeichner, as manager for dealer programs to its Pontiac staff.
Zeichner will help dealers find ways to supply customers with HD Radio options, even if there are limited factory options. One of Zeichner’s responsibilities is to develop a dealer-education program.
And Erin Burns is now a sales engineer on the Pontiac, Mich.-based staff. Burns is a veteran of Siemens VDO and Sentek Corp. He provides tech support to the U.S.-based sales/marketing staff working with Chrysler, Hyundai, Honda, Toyota and Nissan.
