Crestron today announced the appointment of Richard Kurtzer as its Residential Market Development Manager for the Northeast Region. Kurtzer joins Crestron from VCom International Multimedia Corporation where he held positions as Brand Manager and National Accounts Manager. In this role, Kurtzer will expand the total market demand for Crestron residential control and automation solutions by fostering relationships with interior designers, architects and home builders.
Kurtzer will also spearhead the Crestron Interior Design Partner (IDP) Program in the Northeast. He will drive the planning and execution of marketing initiatives tailored to the design build community, including educational events, seminars, conferences, partnerships and sponsorships.
“We continue to see incredible growth opportunities in the residential market,” said Chris Perkins, Crestron Regional Director. “Technology, such as theater systems, lighting control, wireless networks and security systems are now the standard in the home. With Richard’s expertise, we look forward to educating the design build community about the opportunities available to blend technology into their projects.”

“Crestron is a best of breed company, and I am thrilled to join its dynamic team,” added Kurtzer. “Interior designers are faced with the old paradigm – technology overriding their designs. I look forward to demonstrating the conversion of integrated home technology, while maintaining the designer’s vision.”
