Effective February 17, AV-industry veteran Greg Caves will join Display Development as senior vice president of sales.
“It’s great to have Greg back in the home theater industry,” said Jim Burns, president and founder of Display Development. “Greg and I developed a strong relationship when, for 10 years, we worked hand in hand at Runco International. He was a big part of shaping the home theater industry, and his experience will play an integral role in our continued growth in the custom home theater market in the U.S. and abroad.”
Greg brings to Display Development more than 30 years of sales and sales-management experience. His defining moments in home theater began in 1994, when he joined Runco; most recently, he served as North American sales manager for Planar.
Jim and Greg previously worked together for the launch of the Cinewide projection systems, an advance in projection capability that allowed Runco sales to jump from $8 million to $60 million.
“We expect our dealers to find this new collaboration to yield a more powerful solution and cornerstone to their installations,” said Burns.
Scott Varner, sales manager for Display Development, added, “We’re excited to have Greg represent us in the field—he is very well respected among dealers, and we look forward to building new partnerships through his efforts and ultimately expanding our market presence.”
“I founded Display Development with one goal in mind: put the custom back into custom by working with integrators to create systems that answer the needs of their specific installation, rather than providing a ‘one size fits all’ approach,” continued Burns. “With big changes in the industry in recent years, I saw a void in the residential market, and we have been building momentum. Greg’s appointment is a key part of continuing Display Development’s growth and ability to bring more unique solutions to market.”
