Paul Hrivnak N8PH
President & CEO
Palstar President and CEO, Paul Hrivnak, started his career as an electrical engineer in the automotive industry with his first job at the Ford Motor Company in Detroit, Michigan. He then moved to cable broadcasting and invented the very first infra-red remote control for use in cable television, which the company sold to Philips. His first amateur radio start-up was Vectronics back in the 1980s. In the 1990s, he became a U.S. citizen and started Palstar Incorporated in Piqua, OH. A lifetime of excellence in engineering is inside every Palstar product and one of the things Paul enjoys most is speaking directly to customers who are considering purchasing a Palstar product or discussing technical issues related to amateur radio. Paul is also an accomplished classical violinist.
Palstar Vice-President, Eva Hrivnak, was born to a large family and grew up in Budapest, Hungary. Along with her husband, Paul, she became a U.S. citizen in the 1990s and devoted herself fully to her responsibilities at Palstar, Inc.
