UK – Crestron has announced that it has promoted Phil Breitschadel to the role of European VP of sales effective 1st February.

This is the second promotion for Phil in the four years that he has worked at Crestron. He began his career with the company as UK sales manager and in 2012, he was promoted to regional director – UK and Ireland. Under his tenure, the company doubled its business both in the commercial and residential markets.

In his new role, Phil will become a key member of the senior management team and will be responsible for over 70 sales personnel including all regional directors and managers.

Commenting on his promotion, Phil said: “This is an amazing opportunity to lead our highly skilled and talented sales teams. I am looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. The continued growth of our business relies on providing our existing customer base with the same level of dedication and professionalism that we are renowned for, whilst at the same time looking into new market opportunities such as Defence, Healthcare and Government.”

As advocate of using technology to reduce costs and improve productivity, Phil will be based in the UK and will be using Crestron’s own unified collaboration solution – Crestron RL2 – to keep in contact with his colleagues in EMEA.

“At Crestron I believe that we employ the very best people in the industry and I am always delighted when our people are given the opportunity to evolve with the company. Due to his exceptional managerial skills, Phil has a proven track record of success and was the natural choice for the European VP of sales.” Robin van Meeuwen, CEO Crestron EMEA added. “This new role is a crucial step for our company to evolve in a stronger managed business, never losing sight of our customer needs and expectations.”
