With the OCTOBER 2015 acquisition of iBIQUITY DIGITAL by DTS, INC., iBIQUITY's former COO, JEFF JURY, will take over the role of GM, Automotive and HD RADIO, at DTS. Former iBIQUITY CEO BOB STRUBLE will become an advisor to DTS Chairman/CEO JON KIRCHNER in JANUARY.
"During the integration process, we've worked to position the combined DTS and HD Radio business for continued growth and success," said STRUBLE. "It became clear that the role and leadership requirements of the HD RADIO business going forward were not the best match with my skill set and aspirations, and that I can best serve DTS as an advisor. I'm thrilled that JEFF JURY, my longtime partner in building iBIQUITY, will assume responsibility for leading the HD RADIO business. I look forward to supporting JEFF and the DTS team as we move forward."
"BOB, JEFF and the HD RADIO team have built a strong business with an exciting future," said KIRCHNER. "I appreciate their collaboration and leadership efforts as we have worked to position the HD RADIO business within the broader DTS portfolio. I am excited to work with JEFF to build the automotive and HD Radio ecosystem as a key part of DTS' long-term growth strategy and I have additional confidence knowing that we can tap BOB's unique skills and experience where and when needed."
