Industry Mourns Crestron's Feldstein
Tributes poured in throughout the day Wednesday upon news that George Feldstein, the founder and chairman of Crestron, had passed away Tuesday after a yearlong battle with brain cancer.
"His passion and love for our industry was evident in everything that he did," Crestron said in a statement upon Feldstein's passing. "His influence has left an indelible mark on all those who were fortunate enough to know him. He was truly a great man and a great leader. We will all sorely miss him, but his spirit will live on in all that he touched."
The company also asked that friends and colleagues of the late founder share their memories at InmemoryofGFeldstein@crestron.com.
CEDIA, which granted Feldstein its Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007, also remembered the late chairman.
“The home technology industry has lost a great visionary,” Don Gilpin, CEDIA Executive Director & COO, said in a statement. “To say that George had a huge impact on our industry would be a great understatement. His impact in the world of home automation and home technology simply cannot be measured. His passion will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with the Feldsteins and the Crestron family.”
