- Senior Manager - Sales & Technology
- With Alpine Since: 2007
- Favorite Alpine Product: Jeep Wrangler Premium Audio System
I'm a passionate audio guy and have been lucky enough to turn my hobby into a fun and rewarding career. In our building in Auburn Hills, we have quite a playground along with a lot of creative freedom to build some of the most innovative products on the market. I currently mix pro and home audio gear for at-home music listening, while my vehicles are equipped with Alpine Premium Sound. I’m a member of the Southeastern Michigan Woofer and Tweeter Marching Society (SMWTMS) and the Audio Engineering Society (AES). As an audio and auto enthusiast, my Wrangler is the first car I’ve owned that I didn’t have to modify the OEM system!
- Sales & Technology Account Manager
- With Alpine Since: 2014
- Favorite Alpine Product: Jeep Wrangler Subwoofer
As an Account Manager, I enjoy brainstorming with key project stakeholders, such as the Project Managers and Chief Engineers. I’m proud to contribute to the growth of Alpine with my first new sourcing of an ICS system on a GM vehicle program. With teams both in Detriot and Iwaki, the team here helped take down walls to help us accomplish our goals. I am very proud to be part of such a team. Though the company is built on some great Japanese core values and working style, Alpine integrates an advanced North American culture that considers the importance of family and personal time with a structured flexible schedule to fit your lifestyle.
- Software Engineer
- With Alpine Since: 2014
- Favorite Alpine Product: New Technologies
I love the freedom we have to explore new technology to solve problems. The vast majority of my work is done in the R&D area, so I get to work with some of the newest technologies in an ever-changing industry. I also work with some great, smart people who I continue to learn from and share ideas every day. A current project I’m particularly proud of is a proof of concept HMI from the ground up. It uses many new technologies that have not been implemented in an HMI before – it’s been a blast to work on and help make the product what it is. I genuinely love what I do for a living.
- Manager - Sales Administration
- With Alpine Since: 2010
- Favorite Alpine Product: Headphones
I enjoy that I never have a dull moment at my job! It’s a great environment for working, learning and bringing in new ideas and innovations to improve the work flow. I’m proud of being part of improving the department communication and environment. As part of the Big 3 group, it’s rewarding to contribute to the launch of several new GM programs. I enjoy working with my co-workers, those I see on a daily basis, as well as those I interact with at other Alpine locations. I’m proud of the knowledge I’ve gained during my experience here.
- Systems Engineer
- With Alpine Since: 2011
- Favorite Alpine Product: OEM Amplifiers
As a systems engineer and change management lead, I like being exposed to all the different aspects of product development: engineering, quality, sales, administration, and manufacturing. At Alpine, you have the freedom to really find your fit within your team and orgnanization. To an extent, you can define your own ways of adding value. Management provides guidance and is not overly strict. A project accomplishment has been the support of a new production line launch in China – an opportunity usually assigned to a senior engineer – and I was proud to be chosen for the trip.
- With Alpine Since: 2009
- Favorite Alpine Product: OEM systems for BMW
Most people are familiar with Alpine's aftermarket products, so as part of the OEM team, I enjoy sharing at car shows or dealers that a system is built by Alpine. My favorite Alpine product is of course the OEM systems for BMW, which is my project. For aftermarket, AVN head units with Bluetooth and CE Applications are also very impressive. I’m given a lot of opportunities to show my abilities along with encouragement to extend my knowledge in the field. I’m currently leading an eight engineer team validating a BMW multimedia navigation system. I have a very supportive team and manager as well many friends at Global Alpine (US, Japan, Germany).
- New Model Supervisor
- With Alpine Since: 2007
- Favorite Alpine Product: Navigation Systems
I enjoy working with great people within a culturally diverse and ever-changing environment of automotive audio. I get the opportunity to be part of a company that’s a core provider of this technology. As consumers demand continual improvements, the supplier is challenged with advancing product innovation and evolution, which is exciting. As a project manager, I’m proud to be part of the development and launch of our Honda OEM products, along with the relationships I’ve made over nine years at Alpine.
- Project Engineer, Product Evaluation
- With Alpine Since: 2007
- Favorite Alpine Product: Honda Navigation System
The work in Alpine is very challenging, never boring with always an opportunity for growth. It is very exciting to work with state of the art technology and learn something new everyday.

Working in quality means that every day is constantly changing. It's great to work on the next generation technology and directly see the impact of my work.
