Starkey Leadership Team Attends EUHA 2021

Eden Prairie, Minnesota (September 29, 2021) – Starkey President and CEO Brandon Sawalich, along with other members of the Starkey executive team, was proud to attend EUHA 2021 in person earlier this month, to connect directly with partners in hearing health care. The annual European audiology gathering was held in Hannover, Germany, after taking place virtually last year. EUHA 2021 coincided with Starkey Germany’s 40th anniversary, which is being celebrated this month.

“Congratulations to Starkey Germany on 40 years of connecting people through better hearing,” said Sawalich. “I’m incredibly proud of what this team has accomplished. Also, a big thanks to those who organized EUHA 2021, for putting on a great event! We look forward to seeing you again next year!

“We want to thank our German partners in hearing health care for their collaboration over the past four decades,” said Thorsten Quaas, Vice President of European Sales at Starkey. “Together, we are changing and enriching the lives of those with hearing loss. It is an honor to celebrate this important milestone with you!”

The event took place weeks after Starkey unveiled Evolv AI – the hearing industry’s most innovative line of hearing aids. Starkey’s second generation of the smartest hearing aid offers effortless hearing, effortless connection and effortless selection. Evolv AI is built on Starkey Sound™, a ground-breaking technology created by years of refining Starkey’s research and science-based algorithms to power high-fidelity audio, which is modeled after the human auditory system. Like the brain, Starkey Sound is designed to automatically suppress background noise and designed to increase speech audibility and intelligibility with machine learning technology. As the world leader in custom manufacturing, Starkey was also proud to introduce the industry’s smallest 2.4 GHz CIC, as part of the Evolv AI line of hearing aids.
