Audioscan, a division of Etymonic Design, whose headquarters and manufacturing plant are located in Dorchester, Ontario, has announced that Jim Jonkman will assume the presidency of the company, replacing William Cole. Jonkman co-founded Etymonic Design with Cole in 1983 and they were the principal architects of Audioscan’s industry-leading, real ear verification and fitting systems. Jonkman has been primarily involved in Operations and Product Development since the inception of Audioscan in 1989, and will now assume leadership of the company. Jonkman’s ascension was timed with the introduction of the company’s new Verifit2 instrument.
