Robin van Meeuwen appointed Crestron International president1 April 2014
Just days after a new CEO was appointed at Crestron Electronics, the same position has changed hands at the company’s EMEA division. Robin van Meeuwen has been appointed president and CEO of Crestron International.
Robin succeeds his father Frank van Meeuwen, who is to become honorary chairman following 25 years leading Crestron International.
“I am proud to be handing over the reins of Crestron International to Robin – with his passion and drive he is the perfect candidate to take the company forward,” said Frank van Meeuwen. “I have really enjoyed my time at the helm of Crestron International and look forward to continuing my involvement in a more ambassadorial role as honorary chairman.”
Robin van Meeuwen has worked within the Crestron organisation for 17 years – firstly as managing director of Crestron UK and more recently as vice president of sales and marketing for Crestron International.
“I’m really looking forward to assuming the role of CEO of Crestron International,” said Robin van Meeuwen. “The challenge for me will be to build on the considerable legacy left by my father. If I can bring the same vision and commitment to the role that he has shown, I’m sure that we can look forward to Crestron maintaining its pre-eminent position as the world’s leading lifestyle electronics, control and automation company.”
He concluded: “Our focus on meeting the needs of our clients to help them succeed is evident in our enduring presence in these markets, and I am keen to continue this journey as president of Crestron International.”
