Starkey Canada announced that Brian Archambault, “a long-time leader in the hearing aid industry,” has accepted the role of Managing Director. In his new position, Archambault will oversee Starkey operations across Canada. Described as “a transformational sales executive and organizational leader” in Starkey’s announcement, Archambault has more than 20 years of experience driving performance and growth in medical device and pharmaceutical organizations.
“I’m incredibly excited to be joining a company that is truly revolutionizing the hearing aid as we know it. By expanding hearing aids into health aids, Starkey is not only changing the industry landscape, it is drastically improving overall quality of life for patients,” said Archambault. “In Canada, we’re in a great position to be disruptive within the market. Livio AI is just the beginning.”
Livio AI, said to be “the world’s first Healthable hearing aid,” features integrated sensors and artificial intelligence, helping to provide “superior sound quality and the ability to track both body and brain health.” By providing direct monitoring of physical and cognitive activity, Livio AI helps to “raise awareness about the deep connection between treating hearing loss and reducing health risks, like cognitive decline and heart disease.”
“Brian brings a wealth of experience and a long track record of success to Starkey Canada,” said Starkey President Brandon Sawalich. “As technology continues to transform hearing aids, we are aggressively building a team of talented individuals who are embracing the changing industry and have a strong vision of how to harness it in the future. We are confident our company will greatly benefit from Brian’s contributions.”
Archambault is a husband and father of two children. He is also an avid outdoorsman and visits Canada’s renowned fishing destinations whenever he can.
