Crestron Electronics has announced its promotion of John Clancy to the chief sales officer (CSO) position, effective immediately. In this newly created role, Clancy will lead and unify the global Crestron sales organization.
The company says Clancy, who steered Crestron’s residential business and its rollout and expansion of Crestron Home, will seek to drive market growth and enhance customer satisfaction. Clancy reports directly to Crestron’s CEO and president, Dan Feldstein. He will continue to be based at the global technology leader’s headquarters in Rockleigh, N.J.
Crestron Team Excited for Clancy’s Promotion to CSO
Feldstein expresses excitement about Clancy’s promotion to the CSO role. Indeed, he remarks, “His leadership has been instrumental in driving growth and integration across our global residential sales teams. We are confident that he will bring the same energy and expertise to this new role.”
Moreover, he notes Clancy’s experience in the industry, coupled with his strategic vision. These, Feldstein says, “… will strengthen Crestron’s market position and industry leadership in the years to come.”
In his new role, Clancy will take charge of Crestron’s entire sales operation. Importantly for the company, the move will unify teams across global regions and channel categories. As such, he will seek to drive strong collaboration and cross-functional engagement between business units, the company says.
As CSO, Clancy will provide strategic sales leadership and revenue delivery across the entire Crestron portfolio. That, of course, includes residential, hospitality, commercial, government, education, commercial lighting and enterprise businesses.
Clancy expresses both honor and excitement to lead the Crestron global sales organization. He explains, “By opening up new paths to revenue and building the solutions that take us there, we can unlock new opportunities and drive exceptional results for our customers and stakeholders.”
He intends to leverage the full support of the talented Crestron sales team. “I am confident that we will continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible and excel in the huge market opportunity ahead,” Clancy says.
Crestron Electronics Veteran Led Crestron Home Charge
Under Clancy’s leadership, the Crestron Electronics residential sales teams globally have integrated more tightly, while sales in each region have continually experienced year-over-year growth, the company notes.
This, of course, has produced increased revenue and greater market share. Most recently, Clancy spearheaded the creation of the Crestron hospitality division, leading to a new revenue-generating operation that exemplifies the untapped possibilities of tighter integration between business units.
Under Clancy’s tenure as VP Residential for Crestron, he guided the company’s game-changing launch of Crestron Home in 2019, which has expanded to support myriad subsystems for integration and has been a boon to dealers. CE Pro chatted during the pandemic with a group of Crestron dealers about their experiences with Crestron Home after it had been in the market for about a year.
For Crestron, company culture has long been a priority, and Clancy notes his strong belief in fostering a culture of innovation and collaboration.
“We can leverage our deep expertise and unmatched resources to drive sustainable growth for Crestron,” he says. “Our sales focus will be on delivering exceptional customer experiences, building long-term partnerships and creating value that extends far beyond our products and services.”
