Asked today if Crestron would be hosting a party for the new CEO, Klein responded, “No celebration here. Just business as usual.”
CE Pro will catch up with Klein tomorrow, after he’s done hosting 100 dealers from Latin America.
In a statement issued today, Crestron notes the company will stay true to Feldstein’s “original vision: to be the best at what it does, and to always remain a family company.”
Indeed, Klein is like family to Feldstein, and the founder has appointed his son Dan Feldstein vice chairman and COO. The younger Feldstein has been with the company for 20 years in engineering and operations.
In 2004, CE Pro named George Feldstein one of the Top 10 Most Influential Leaders in the custom installation industry. We reaffirmed his influence nearly 10 years later in 2013, picking him as a Top 20 Leader.
