Draper has announced a new position to work exclusively with the custom install and residential integration markets. The new role of director of residential markets will be filled by Clint Childress, LEED AP.
Childress joined Draper in 2000 and has served as a window shade product specialist and green buildings coordinator. He was most recently solar control solutions manager, where his task was to design solutions for exterior, interior, and custom shading needs, according to Draper. Childress also helped develop and coordinate shade integration controls.
“Since we introduced Draper@Home at the 2021 CEDIA Expo, our presence in this market has been tremendous,” says Randy Reece, director of AV sales and marketing.
“However, there is still a lot of potential and we wanted someone with Clint’s background and deep understanding of solar control and integration to lead us to the next level of solution design and support.”
Childress has already been working extensively with the Draper@Home team on outdoor shading solutions and controls, Draper notes, and will be in the company’s booth #23081 at the 2022 CEDIA Expo, September 29-October 1 in Dallas.
