Technological Innovations Group (TIG), which has over 120 dedicated Crestron sales professionals and offices including Experience Spaces in London, Brussels, Paris, Madrid, Milan, Frankfurt, Dubai, Oslo and Johannesburg, has appointed Wikus Botha as its new regional sales manager for Crestron’s residential solutions in South Africa.
Wikus joins the team as the company strengthens its position in the smart home sector. His primary responsibilities will be to analyse, grow and respond to market opportunities, whilst nurturing relationships with new and existing partners and end-users. He will also be responsible for assisting dealers and specifiers with the integration of Crestron solutions into their designs for residential projects, ensuring installations – whether a retro-fit or new-build – meet the needs of the modern smart homeowner.
Reporting to Steven Dullaert, director residential sales EMEA, Wikus has worked in IT, AV and home automation since the age of 17, and will bring his vast experience, industry knowledge and skills to the newly-created role.
On his appointment, Wikus commented “The best thing you can do in life is make the most of your skills and talents. I want to bring the very best version of myself to the best technology company in the world, and assist our clients and partners to be the most successful they can be too!”
Dullaert added: “We’re excited about the appointment of Wikus, who I’m certain will be a great addition to the team in South Africa! He will be the point of contact for our residential partners in the region as we expand into this rapidly growing market sector. It’s the start of an exciting new journey for TIG as I’m thrilled to have a dedicated residential Regional Sales Manager on the ground, to cater to all customer needs and enquiries as more opportunities arise.”
