Looks like they promoted John Kuhn to CTO and brought back their former VP of Product Development Tim Coomer as Chief Product Officer (poaching him from Waylens where he was CEO).

John Kuhn is a smart guy, hopefully as CTO he'll be able to direct some funds back towards R&D. I don't know anything about Tim Coomer, does anyone know what products he worked on previously?

IIRC, Coomer was around during the Redline and Max era. I think Nine thought he was the primary reason Escort blocked/denied the need for BS/RDR on the Redline.

I guess the general sense about him (as it related to Escort products) was something like arrogant, bureaucratic, ignorant, or standoff-ish.

So... I don't think this will be a boon to enthusiasts. But perhaps his familiarity with their current products could re-stimulate their development. Trying to look at it as half glass full.

My bet is, from a firmware/update/improvement side, we won't be able to tell that he is back - for better or worse.

meh...
just moving around the deck chairs on a sinking ship.

Yep. And sinking ship is putting it nicely RR, I would’ve said “half-sunken” ship...

On the hand bringing back the old guard could be a good thing, but seems more like establishing a brand new executive team with new and different ideas and might save the company...
