TIG appoints director of marine business EMEA
Technological Innovations Group (TIG) has announced the appointment of Daniel Kerkhof as director of marine business EMEA.
Kerkhof will be responsible for growing TIG’s sales across the marine sector focusing on TIG’s partner’s Crestron and YachtCloud.
Based in the Netherlands, Kerkhof will be the contact for TIG’s existing shipyards and ETO’s as well as developing new relationships throughout EMEA.
Within this role, he will also head up the creation of Crestron’s Authorised Marine Dealer Network as well as educating decision makers and influencers for this market in order for them to fully understand the benefits of installing a fully automated system.
“I have been working with some of our marine dealers since I joined the company in 2011 and have always enjoyed the complexity of these projects,” commented Kerkhof. “For me it is a great challenge to work towards a global Crestron approach for this market.
“Because it is a market with a limited number of active parties we believe we should be able to implement a global approach for them, meaning that we will gather information between the Crestron and TIG teams and ensure that we will approach marine projects in the same manner worldwide.”
Robin van Meeuwen, TIG’s CEO, added: “Daniel has always been an allrounder servicing the residential and commercial business, yet his real passion lies in the marine industry. His complete focused effort on marine will undoubtedly help significantly increase our business in the next year. The industry has so many opportunities on which we wish to capitalise.”
