“Eberle Design’s 38-year reputation is grounded upon providing the highest quality, functionality and operational reliability for our solutions offered to traffic control, parking/access, railway and transportation data collection professionals,” said EDI Vice President, Dr Bill Sowell. “The promotion of Ben Luke to Engineering Director is well deserved, as Ben has been a proven leader while serving as Engineering Manager with RAE for 18 years. We are confident that Ben will provide key Engineering leadership for enhanced product innovation and maintaining a high operational tempo.”

“It is with sincere regret EDI has accepted the resignation of Luis Silva from the position of Vice President-Engineering and Leadership Council Member, with effect on 15 November 2018.

Mr. Silva has accepted another career opportunity, we wish him much success in his new endeavors and he will be missed,” said EDI CFO, April Garcia.
