Crestron’s Phil Breitschadel has been tasked with doubling the company’s size in the next five years after being promoted to European VP of sales.

Breitschadel has worked for the manufacturer for four years starting as UK sales manager. In 2012 he became regional director – UK and Ireland where he oversaw the doubling of Crestron’s business both in the commercial and residential markets. 

He will now be responsible for more than 70 sales personnel including all regional directors and managers. 

Breitschadel said:  “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.” 

Matthew Buck will succeed Breitschadel as UK sales manager.
