Crestron appoints Backler to corporate training manager

Crestron has announced that it has appointed Michael Backler to the newly created position of corporate EMEA training and CAIP manager.

Working out of Creston UK’s office in Cobham, Michael’s new role will see him liaising with Crestron’s American contingent to establish standards in training across the international regions and relay them to EMEA.

In the last 10 years, he has assisted in the training of over 1000 accredited integrators, and the company says that Michael has been instrumental in Crestron’s training initiatives to date and is already fully certified in both RoomView and DigitalMedia, having helped establish the existing training programmes for both.

“A central theme of the Crestron brand is reliability and consistency and with new offices and design and experience centres opening across the globe and many more Crestron dealers also being established internationally, it is important for us to maintain this,” says Robin van Meeuwen, VP of Creston International. “Michael’s new role will achieve greater consistency across our training programmes in the EMEA region, ensuring that all Crestron accredited integrators maintain a high standard of knowledge when it comes to installing, programming, and maintaining Crestron systems.”
