Greg Caves Joins Display Development as SVP Sales
After 19 years with Runco and later Planar, Greg Caves joins former colleague Jim Burns at Display Development
Gregory Caves just “retired” but now he’s back in the video business as SVP sales for Display Development, maker of in-wall projectors.
He had spent the past 19 years with Runco and later its acquiring company Planar, where he served most recently as North American Sales Manager.
Display Development founder Jim Burns worked with Runco for 10 years, forging a relationship with Caves.
“It’s great to have Greg back in the home theater industry,” says Burns. “Greg and I developed a strong relationship when, for 10 years, we worked hand in hand at Runco International. He was a big part of shaping the home theater industry, and his experience will play an integral role in our continued growth in the custom home theater market in the US and abroad.”
The last time Burns and Caves worked together was for the launch of Runco’s game-changing Cinewide 2.35:1 projection systems, which helped Runco sales grow from $8 million to $60 million, according to Burns.
He says Display Development’s architectural video systems (in-wall, in-ceiling, extreme-offset) will likewise produce a significant revolution in video displays.
“I founded Display Development with one goal in mind,” says Burns. “Put the custom back into custom by working with integrators to create systems that answer the needs of their specific installation, rather than providing a ‘one size fits all’ approach. With big changes in the industry in recent years, I saw a void in the residential market, and we have been building momentum. Greg’s appointment is a key part of continuing Display Development’s growth and ability to bring more unique solutions to market.”
With Runco, Caves played a significant role in buying groups and other industry organizations. He is entrenched in the home systems integration community.
