Thales Navigation Taps Bob Miklosko to Lead Worldwide Engineering Organization

Thales has appointed engineering veteran Bob Miklosko, most recently of Panasonic Mobile Communications and NEC, to lead the worldwide engineering organization for its navigation business.

As vice president of worldwide engineering, Miklosko takes leadership of an international engineering team creating GPS navigation and positioning technologies and products across four businesses, including vehicle navigation, outdoor handhelds and content, survey and GIS solutions, and OEM.

Miklosko joins Thales most recently from a four-year post at Panasonic Mobile Communications Development where he served as the vice president of product planning and product engineering. At Panasonic and throughout his more than 20 year career in product development and engineering, Miklosko has accumulated key experience in all phases of the product lifecycle, ranging from technology and product planning through design, verification, launch, post-launch, and end-of-life support.

Before Panasonic, Miklosko directed a cross-functional product development team as the director of product engineering at NEC America. Miklosko held product management, project management, and senior engineering positions at companies such as JRC International, Ericsson, Westinghouse Electric, and Airborne Instruments Laboratory.

Bob holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Pennsylvania State University, an M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Polytechnic University in Brooklyn, New York, and an M.S. in Technical Management from Johns Hopkins University.
