Linear Labs has announced two new additions to the company’s growing team with the appointment of Michael Van Steenburg as Director of Engineering and Mary Korn as Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

This expansion aims to provide valuable expertise as Linear Labs comes to market with the patented technology of the Hunstable Electric Turbine (HET) and the next generation of electric motors, including prototypes for the e-scooter micromobility segment, the company said in a news release.

Van Steenburg brings nearly three decades of experience in the automotive industry, as both a veteran mechanical engineer by training and an electric-drives expert by experience. He has worked with respected global brands including DaimlerChrysler, BMW/Mini, Lotus Cars, and Ruhrpumpen, in the areas of advanced materials and electric motor drives.

As Director of Engineering he will work directly with co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Fred Hunstable in the advancement of the company’s endeavors in the electric vehicle (EV), micromobility, robotics and HVAC spaces.

Korn, who was previously CFO of Hunstable’s first successful venture, Ustream, which was acquired by IBM, brings more than 25 years of experience in both venture-backed and public companies. As CFO she will help elevate Linear Labs’ financial affairs through strategic planning and analysis of the partnership landscape, as well as oversee the global finance department.

“Having worked with Michael and Mary before, I can say that their combined experience will bring vital knowledge to our growing team here at Linear Labs,” said Founder and Chief Executive Officer Brad Hunstable. “We’re entering the next phase of the company. We have a new facility and lab we will soon debut and multiple development announcements around the corner. So, it’s an important time to bolster our team with the best minds in the business.”

The Fort Worth-based team also includes recent additions of President John Curry and Vice President of Strategic Partnerships Jon Hurry.

Collectively, Linear Labs’ in-house organization now has experience working with notable industry leaders including Tesla, General Motors, Honda, Bell Helicopter, Phoenix Motorcars, Faraday Future, KLA-Tencor, NanoPhotonics, Walker Engineering, and Navistar, the company said.
