Cobra, Kiran Kripakaran

Student Picture"I will be starting to work with Cobra Electronics in Chicago, beginning on January 1st. I will be working as an Assistant Category Manager. My duties will include development of market research, product strategy, design development and introduction of new products. I will be coordinating between category managers, industrial design, product development, engineering, marketing and sales to help bring new products to the market. The two product lines I will be managing are two-way radios and CB radios (Marine Division)."

"Cobra Electronics' citizen band radios and radar detectors are good buddies when you're on the road. Its principal Cobra division markets CB and marine radios, two-way radios, radar detectors, power inverters, jump-starters, and GPS navigation systems for professional drivers under the Cobra brand. The firm's PPL unit peddles personal navigation systems and speed camera location detectors under the Snooper name. Cobra Electronics also manages the AURA database of photo-enforcement locations (including speed camera and red-light detector positions) in North America and Europe. Cobra's products are sold in the US, Canada, and Europe through consumer electronics stores, discount retailers, and truck stops." -- Hoovers
