DTS Chairman And CEO Jon Kirchner Named Finalist In Ernst & Young 2012 Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards

DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio, today announced that Jon Kirchner, the company’s chairman and CEO, is a finalist in the Ernst & Young 2012 Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. Now in its 26th year, the award honors entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.

Joining the company in 1993, Kirchner held numerous leadership roles before becoming CEO in 2001 and later moving seamlessly into the position of DTS’ chairman and CEO in 2010. Recognized for growing DTS from a start-up to one of the most profitable and highly valued companies in its industry, Kirchner has guided the company through its rapid international expansion while successfully raising public and private capital. Kirchner brings an unwavering focus to building a premium brand while fostering a loyal, team-oriented and passionate employee culture.

Kirchner also serves as chairman of the YPO Santa Monica Bay charitable foundation, which provides funding to disadvantaged Los Angeles youth high school students who show promise despite trying odds. He routinely speaks to MBA and undergraduate students about entrepreneurship and executive leadership, and serves on the board of trustees at Claremont McKenna College. Additionally, he formerly served as chairman of the Berger Institute for Work, Family and Children advisory board.

“As a member of the DTS team for more than 18 years, it is truly gratifying to be recognized among the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards finalists,” said Kirchner. “Together with the talented team at DTS, we will continue to drive the future of audio entertainment delivery, advancing the art of high-quality sound and meeting the consumer demand for uncompromised audio across connected devices.”
