Introducing The 2012 Young Turks of CE
Sales Manager, Runco
Greg has been the field face of Runco for independent custom integrators since 1994. What separates Greg in the field is his understanding of the dealers’ business and trying to match the right Runco product to meet their business needs. Greg’s dealers view him as a business partner and ally, and his insight to dealers regarding successful business strategies is deemed as just as valuable to independent dealers. Greg was at the forefront of introducing Runco CineWide™ technology to the market with Sam Runco and through the transition when Runco was acquired by Planar Systems in 2007. Greg has been a constant and provided the much needed continuity during and after the transition. www.runco.com
President and CEO, Pakedge Device and Software
Victor started Pakedge after seeing a need for dedicated custom installation networking products that offered performance and capabilities unavailable from off-the-shelf products. Pak realized that audio, video and data were all going to be going down IP highways in the home and specialized hardware would be needed, as evidenced by the current trend towards audio/video bridging.
Victor has introduced many new concepts, including in-ceiling wireless access points (WAPs), high-power WAPs and Virtual Cell Technology, where multiple WAPs are “seen” as a single access point to eliminate roaming. Pak is instrumental in designing and engineering Pakedge products and overseeing company operations. www.pakedge.com
