Crestron has appointed Fred Bargetzi as its chief technology officer, where he will continue to oversee the technology and engineering aspects of the business.
Bargetzi joined Crestron 25 years ago and has served a number of key positions in the company, from his start as an applications engineer to creating and managing a wide variety of departments, including technical sales, training, and R&D.
As the vice president of technology for the past 10 years, Bargetzi has been responsible for leading Crestron’s technology strategy in key areas including the new enterprise class .NET control platform, UI and mobile applications, and the DigitalMedia product line.
His current title as CTO combines his engineering expertise with his passion for the business, and solidifies his role in helping drive Crestron’s success into the future.
“The potential for our business today and in the future is incredible. We have an amazing engineering team with world class talent, and working together we can ensure the company’s continued leadership role in technology,” Bargetzi said.
“For 25 years I have worked side by side with Fred. Over that time he has been responsible for helping shape much of the technology and success of the company. I look forward to a future filled with more of the same, as we lead Crestron toward even greater success," Klein added.
