Crestron has appointed Jonathan Garcia as its technical director in Canada.
Garcia joins Crestron from Westbury National Show Systems, where he held the position of systems engineer. With more than 14 years experience in AV system design, layout and deployment, Garcia will lead the True Blue support in this key region.
“Our award-winning True Blue team is committed to supporting Crestron dealers and certified programmers (CAIPs), enabling them to deliver the best technology solutions and client care in the world,” said Philip Cowling, Crestron regional director. “Bringing Jonathan on board demonstrates our commitment to providing the industry’s finest local support and technical expertise.”
Garcia began his career as a live sound engineer and soon moved up the ranks, becoming a production manager for Princess Cruise Lines. His introduction to Crestron came when he joined Applied Electronics as a programmer. Prior to his position at Westbury National Show Systems, Garcia was the integration products manager at Electroboard Solutions in Sydney, Australia. There, he was responsible for system design, project/product forecasting and commissioning engineer for Audio DSP, control and network AV systems.
“I’m excited to be part of an organization that is not only an industry leader in innovation and design, but also a team that is renowned for its technical and customer support,” Garcia said. “My experience, coupled with the top-notch resources available at Crestron, will provide comprehensive solutions to the wide variety of applications in which Crestron products are employed.”
