Rockleigh, NJ, March 27, 2014 — More than 40 years ago, Founder George Feldstein followed a passion and vision to create a technology company that would aim to be the best at everything it did. Driven by his passion for engineering and his commitment to innovation, Crestron has become a world leader in automation, control and management systems.
Today, Crestron is a global company spanning every corner of the world with 91 offices, thousands of employees, and millions of customers. But despite the growth and success, Crestron remains true to its roots and Mr. Feldstein’s original vision: to be the best at what it does, and to always remain a family company.
As Chairman of Crestron, Mr. Feldstein continues to supply the passion that has made Crestron a leader in the industry, while empowering his top executives to help drive Crestron’s growth toward its next 40 years of success and beyond.
