– Crestron proudly accepted
the Corporate Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Corporate
Growth New Jersey last week during the organization’s Corporate Growth
Conference. The annual half-day conference honors CEOs of companies that
exemplify innovation, excellence, and corporate growth. Crestron was selected
by the ACG NJ Board of Directors for its inspiring story of innovation,
transformation, and growth over the past 40 years. Crestron CEO, Randy Klein
accepted the award on the company’s behalf and shared Crestron’s story of
innovation during the conference keynote.
In his keynote address, Klein said that innovation is about changing, growing,
and building “continually.” “Our people make Crestron great. The
people make the company. The people make the innovation. The people drive us
forward and give us our purpose.” “We started with nothing,” he added, noting
that the company was founded in 1969 as a repair company and that the company
grew “one dollar and one customer at a time.”
“ACG New Jersey and its annual conference bring together local business leaders
to promote corporate growth,” said ACG New Jersey President, Sally Glick. “We
selected Crestron to receive the Corporate Lifetime Achievement award during
the conference because Crestron is a company with longevity and has
demonstrated a consistent and powerful track record of success and innovation.”
The influential networking event provided attendees with an opportunity to
honor and learn from CEOs of successful companies. News 12 New Jersey Anchor,
Bryan Jenkins was the emcee for the value-packed conference. Following the
networking session and honoree panel discussion, Randy Klein took to the stage
to discuss Crestron’s history, evolution, innovation, and continued growth.
“It’s truly an honor to be recognized by such a prestigious organization and to
receive this award,” said Klein. “We’ve built a strong, dynamic and resilient
company and one that will withstand time. How did we get here? It starts with
hard work, commitment, focus, some risk, some luck, respect of the competition,
and above all, people.”
“Speaking on behalf of myself and so many others in the audience, we were
inspired by Randy’s insights and stories about leading Crestron’s innovation,
transformation, and growth,” said Pamela Harper, Chair of the 2015 ACG NJ
Corporate Growth Conference & Awards. “The vision and passion were evident,
and I can understand why generations of talented employees would want to work
Crestron’s unwavering commitment to its customers and the industry drives the
development of innovative new products and solutions. Crestron is dedicated to
doing this right here in New Jersey where the company has the best and brightest
talent, enabling growth and innovation for years and decades to come.
“Work hard, lead by example, respect the people that got us here and above all,
embrace change and opportunity. Because if we do, we will continue to become a
bigger and better company year after year,” Klein concluded.
