Who Are the Most Influential CE People of Past 20 Years?
Tom Doherty graces the cover of our first standalone issue in 1995. Prior to that, “HA Pro” was an insert in Electronic House magazine.
We’re celebrating in 2013, starting with the February issue. Who should we celebrate?
We’re looking for suggestions for people that pushed the industry along, either through technology, business practices, evangelism, whatever.
Think way back, not just the past year or two.
Remember Tom Riley from Unity Systems, whose groundbreaking home automation system is still alive in many homes? He’d be a good one.
Innovators like George Feldstein (Crestron) and Joel Spira (Lutron) come to mind.
Personally, I’d put Daniel Tonks (RemoteCentral.com) on the list. Likewise, Tricia Parks (Parks Associates). And naturally our very own founder and CEO Ken Moyes, who launched the industry’s first trade magazine, which is still the leader in both print and online.
Fortunately, I’m not making the list ... you are.
In the “comments” section below, please nominate some top influencers, and then we’ll put the nominees to a vote. The list will be revealed in the February issue of CE Pro magazine, and then we’ll be sharing other “Top 20s” throughout the year.
