Crestron International has announced that Robin van Meeuwen has been appointed President and CEO of Crestron International. Robin succeeds his father Frank van Meeuwen who is to become Honorary Chairman following 25 years leading Crestron International. The foundation for Crestron International’s success has been laid by Frank van Meeuwen’s vision and commitment during this time and his leadership has provided the perfect platform for continued growth. “I am proud to be handing over the reins of Crestron International to Robin – with his passion and drive he is the perfect candidate to take the company forward,” said Frank van Meeuwen. “I have really enjoyed my time at the helm of Crestron International and look forward to continuing my involvement in a more ambassadorial role as Honorary Chairman.” Robin van Meeuwen has worked within the Crestron organisation for 17 years and in his roles firstly as Managing director of Crestron UK, and more recently as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Crestron International, he has developed a true international perspective that will serve him well in his new role. “I’m really looking forward to assuming the role of CEO of Crestron International,” said Robin van Meeuwen. “The challenge for me will be to build on the considerable legacy left by my Father. If I can bring the same vision and commitment to the role that he has shown I’m sure that we can look forward to Crestron maintaining its pre-eminent position as the world’s leading lifestyle electronics, control and automation company.” Crestron solutions are shaped by more than four decades of innovation. The company has evolved across many industries, gaining strength and expertise through diversity. As Robin van Meeuwen sums up: “Our focus on meeting the needs of our clients to help them succeed, is evident in our enduring presence in these markets, and I am keen to continue this journey as President of Crestron International.” www.crestron.eu
