BK Technologies promoted Branko Avanic to chief technology officer (CTO). Avanic joined BK in August as senior vice president of engineering.

He brings to BK more than 30 years of leading-edge product development expertise with Motorola Solutions. He owns 29 U.S. patents. In his new role, Avanic is responsible for the entirety of BK's engineering activities. His primary near-term focus, however, is to direct and complete the company's development of high-performance, fully featured, multiband products.

James Holthaus, the former CTO, was appointed to the newly created position of senior vice president – Project 25 (P25) product solutions and marketing, responsible for product definition and market analysis with a focus on development of BK's P25 mobile and portable radio markets. Holthaus has served BK Technologies in several capacities since joining the company in 1997 and has been an active contributor in the development and evolution of LMR products and P25 digital radio standards.

"We are very excited to have Branko on our executive team,” BK President Tim Vitou. “He is a highly accomplished leader in the LMR industry and brings the talent, vision and experience that we believe will ultimately yield highly competitive new products that should serve as the foundation for expanded market share.

“We are also pleased to deploy Jim's experience and talents to fulfill an important new role, which will play an integral part in setting the course for BK's strategic technology and product roadmap for the future."
