What follows is an official statement from Crestron.
It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of Fred Bargetzi, our CTO and dear friend.
His impact on our company cannot be overstated. The impact he’s had on our industry is even greater. Under Fred’s leadership, he challenged us to not only push the boundaries of what’s possible, but to do so with an eye towards making the world a better place.
Having just celebrated his 30th anniversary at Crestron, Fred leaves behind a legacy of innovation, creativity, enthusiasm, and kindness that has helped shape the AV industry into what it is today. We are eternally grateful for his dedication and inspiration. He will be deeply missed.
We are planning several ways to honor Fred’s remarkable life. In the meantime, if you would like to share your thoughts, memories and condolences simply email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
