Crestron has hired John Clancy from one of its biggest customers: New York-based Audio Command Systems, the second largest independent integration company in the CE Pro 100. Clancy, who was executive VP and CTO of ACS for 23 years, joins Crestron as VP of Residential Programs.
Clancy was instrumental in driving ACS to become one of the largest residential audio, home theater, lighting control, and home automation companies in the nation. He led not only the New York headquarters, but also the technology direction of the offices in Boca Raton and Los Angeles.
In December 2015, Clancy was elected to the CEDIA Board of Directors. As the new VP of Residential Programs, Clancy will be responsible for driving sales and marketing strategies, dealer and end user programs, and much more for all of the Crestron residential business.
