CE Pro Editors · October 9, 2015
Simple Control announced that Keith Pribyl has been appointed as Vice President of Sales at the app-based home control leader formerly known as Roomie Remote. Also announced is the addition of Rob Zurn as Director of Sales Engineering.

Keith Pribyl has spent much of his career leading sales activities for the SANUS brand as it grew from an entrepreneurial start-up into the largest TV wall mount and accessory brand in the world. In addition to his work building a US sales team at SANUS, he is known for establishing a comprehensive distribution network across the Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

"Keith is a pioneer in the consumer electronics industry and we are excited to welcome him to the Simple Control team," said Simple Control CEO, Will Price. "We believe his strong experience, especially in building a global sales and distribution network, will be extremely valuable as Simple Control prepares to grow around the world."

"I've known Keith for more than 25 years, and I'm thrilled to have him join us at Simple Control. Keith is known universally in the industry, and well-respected for his never-ending energy to build win-win relationships," said Simple Control board member, Jim Wohlford. "I'm confident that Keith is the right person to build our global sales and distribution network."

Also joining Simple Control, Rob Zurn brings a new level of technical expertise in regard to the programming of home control systems. Rob's background in programming Lutron, RTI, Crestron and Savant systems has allowed him to gain critical knowledge to take on the role of CI channel training and support.

"We chose the name Simple Control because we really do have a simple product," said Jim Wohlford. "But as with any new system, there's a learning curve. That's where Rob comes in. His CI knowledge and experience, combined with great communication skills, makes him an ideal fit."

Simple Control, formerly Roomie Remote, produces an app-based complete home control system. The Simple App operates thousands of devices like TVs, cable and satellite boxes, receivers, Blu-ray players, lights, switches, thermostats and more. The system integrates interactive second-screen media guides and allows control of everything in the home from a single app. Simple offers a Simple Blaster for control of IR-based devices and also a Simple Sync Hub for additional whole-home features.
