Technological Innovations Group (TIG), the AV sales agency for Crestron and Oblong Industries’ Mezzanine in EMEA, has appointed Daniel Kerkhof in the position of Director of Marine Business EMEA. Kerkhof takes up the position effective immediately.
In this role, Kerkhof will be responsible for growing TIG’s sales across the marine sector focusing on TIG’s partners Crestron and YachtCloud. Based in The Netherlands, Daniel will be the go-to contact for TIG’s existing shipyards and ETOs, as well as developing new relationships throughout the EMEA. He will educate the decision makers and influencers for this market for them to fully understand the benefits of installing a fully automated system. Additionally, Kerkhof will head up the creation of Crestron’s Authorised Marine Dealer Network.
On his new position Kerkhof comments: “I have been working with some of our marine dealers since I joined the company in 2011 and have always enjoyed the complexity of these projects. For me it is a great challenge to work towards a global Crestron approach for this market. Because it is a market with a limited number of active parties we believe we should be able to implement a global approach for them, meaning that we will gather information between the Crestron and TIG teams and ensure that we will approach marine projects in the same manner worldwide.”
TIG’s CEO and President Robin van Meeuwen adds: “Daniel has always been an allrounder servicing the residential and commercial business, yet his real passion lies in the Marine industry. His complete focussed effort on Marine will undoubtedly help significantly increase our business in the next year. This industry has so many opportunities on which we wish to capitalise.”
