Stewart Filmscreen has appointed industry veteran Robert Keeler, as vice president of sales, residential market. Stewart has been actively expanding its leadership team, sales force, and product line.
Bringing more than 20 years of experience with consumer technology and custom integration, Rob Keeler’s appointment is part of Stewart Filmscreen’s strategic corporate initiative to reinvigorate and transform the two-piece projection category. With previous stints at Pioneer Electronics and BDI, Keeler joins Stewart from his most recent position as director of sales for Screen Innovations. Intimately familiar with the home cinema and custom installation markets, Keeler is excited to bring his many years of experience and expertise with integrating the right projection screen materials and projectors into the residential home environment.
“As Stewart Filmscreen embarks on the next generation of excellence, I am thrilled to have Rob Keeler on board to support our residential sales initiatives,” said president and CEO, Shannon Townley. “Rob is not only well known and well liked, he’s highly regarded for being tough yet fair, with a keen wit and competitive edge. I’m confident our partners will benefit greatly from his industry expertise, product knowledge, and business acumen, all of which are perfectly aligned with our initiatives.”
Keeler recently toured Stewart Filmscreen’s 5-acre facility in Southern California, noting, “I’m utterly amazed by the true innovation and overall capability of the Stewart Filmscreen manufacturing plant in Torrance. You have no idea what’s actually possible until you see how Stewart Filmscreen hand crafts their products to mind-blowing, exacting specifications that exceed the highest quality standards. I can’t wait to share what I’m learning with the residential integration community!”
As a movie enthusiast and technophile, Keeler is thrilled to be a part of the Stewart Filmscreen team. “Stewart is a legendary company known around the globe for its innovation, craftsmanship, and support,” he said. “After top-grossing movies have left the theaters, where do people see them? In their homes! As an industry, we get to sell fun, and I’m honored to join the Stewart Filmscreen team to continue delivering immersive, exceptional entertainment experiences.”
