Crestron has appointed Jeremy Button as its new government sales manager.
Based in Flower Mound, TX, Button will be responsible for sales to the army and navy located west of the Mississippi. Button joins Crestron from the United States Army Corps of Engineers, where he served as an Aide De Camp. Jeremy’s military background and great relationships will expand demand for Crestron’s integrated solutions among the government sector within his territory.
“Jeremy’s technical expertise and relationships in the industry will help Crestron expand its growing presence in military facilities,” said Landon Lovett, Crestron director of federal government markets. “His previous experience as an Aide de Camp will help Crestron tailor its outreach to the army and navy communities to demonstrate the benefits of an integrated solution in command centers, emergency operation centers, network operations centers, classrooms, and auditoriums.”
“As government sales manager, I will have the opportunity to draw on some of the skills acquired during my time in the military,” said Button. “I will be able to relate to the forces on the ground and communicate the best Crestron solution to the appropriate military personnel.”
Jeremy began his career as a Battalion Task Force engineer for a 1,700 man battalion, responsible for the security of Bagram Airfield, one of the largest U.S. air bases in Afghanistan. In this role, he supervised the installation of surveillance system upgrades for Bagram Airfield and instituted programs which hardwired communications systems into the guard towers around the perimeter of the base. Since then, Jeremy has served as Mobile Reaction Force Platoon Leader, Battalion Assistant S3, and Deputy CJ-7 Normandy TAC2 101st Airborne Division.
“This industry changes daily, and I’m thrilled to be a part of something that is progressive and constantly evolving,” added Button.
