Kenwood USA Corporation (Long Beach, CA, U.S.) has appointed Mike Bergman to the newly created position of vice president of New Digital Technologies. Mr. Bergman was formerly Kenwood's director of research and development for digital broadcast products and spearheaded the company's development of SIRIUS satellite radio and HD-Radio receivers. He joined Kenwood in 2002.

"Mike's appointment will enable Kenwood to maintain market leadership in growth markets like digital radio and in emerging technologies, including data broadcast services," said Dan Petersen, executive vice president of Kenwood's Consumer Electronics Sector. "Having a U.S.-based presence for these new technologies is central to our product strategy, and Mike's experience makes him the ideal executive to lead that effort."

Mr. Petersen said the new position was created to manage Kenwood's development of next generation digital satellite and IBOC receiver products for the U.S. market. Mr. Bergman will continue to represent Kenwood in industry standards organizations and technical groups related to digital audio broadcasting and other areas.

Mr. Bergman has more than 20 years of experience in the electronics industry.
