AMX has appointed Robert Choate as director, residential sales, leading the U.S. national market.
Choate brings over 15 years of experience in a complement of strategic roles. In the most recent seven years, Choate has managed key responsibilities for the AMX international division, gaining him extensive global sales experience. He has also led the AMX InConcert Manufacturer Partner Program, working directly with manufacturers of complimentary AV equipment and building endorsement relationships worldwide. This combined experience positions Mr. Choate as a natural choice for the residential market, the company says.
“Robert truly understands what our residential customers are looking for,” said Kevin Bowyer, AMX vice president of U.S. Sales. “He illustrates, better than anyone, how we can fulfill their needs – ‘We are creating a life experience. Each AMX solution is custom fit to personify everything the client could imagine possible.’”
“Robert always has a creative take on strategy and a different way of looking at how to best support the residential marketplace,” said Rashid Skaf, AMX president and CEO. “He is passionate and knowledgeable about the unique aspects of the residential market. I’m excited to have him leading our residential business.”
“Leading the Residential Group is a challenge I couldn’t be more excited to take on,” said Choate. “It’s an area that I’ve been watching closely and is rife with untapped growth potential. For too long, customers have settled for other solutions that attempt to meet but rarely exceed their expectations. With a truly best of breed product offering, a world class support team and over 30 years of experience in this business, we’re here to make sure everyone knows that AMX is the only choice for a truly life-changing residential experience.”
