Mr. Kahn was the co-founder of Ten-Tec along with current president Jack
Burchfield, K4JU. He retired from Ten-Tec about 15 years ago and was
active on the board of directors for the company continuously after his
retirement. The board is involved in the big picture - direction for
Ten-Tec, who runs it, etc., and Mr. Kahn was certainly involved with
that and many other aspects of the company even in retirement.
>I think it would be interesting to know more about the company; how it is
>organized, and who gives it direction.
The majority owner is President and co-founder Jack Burchfield, K4JU.
There are several minority owners, all of whom are current or former Ten-Tec
employees. There is an independent board comprised of a few of the
owners and several other successful business personalities who are
licensed amateurs but do not have an ownership interest in the company
itself. They provide objective perspective and advice to us.
The day-to-day operations are headed by Jack Burchfield and Ten-Tec VP
Gary Barbour, AC4DL. We have a management team of 9 people (myself
included) under Jack and Gary that oversee various parts of our operation
to take care of the various day-to-day dealings with customers,
service, production -- everything.
2005 is 37 years for us in ham radio - many more to come.
