What do Mark Zuckerberg’s home, the University of Notre Dame, the biggest casino in Reno, and Shopify’s offices all have in common? They’re are all powered by Crestron technology.

Who is this $1.5B silent leader that’s transforming how we live, work, learn and play? Crestron was founded in 1971 and has come a long way from its A/V nerd roots. Today, they’re at the forefront of cutting edge technology that is, in a nutshell, making our lives easier. Crestron is partnering with companies like Apple and Amazon to connect all facets of our lives.

For example, in a Crestron-powered meeting room, you could say, “Alexa, start my meeting,” and you will automatically be dialed-in to a conference line with your presentation displayed on the screen. 

Meeting rooms aren’t all they’re doing. Crestron’s circadian lighting is helping improve productivity AND sleep schedules. Its smart home technology is customizable and easy to use. They’re making “smart” hospital rooms that improve patient and physician experiences. 

Crestron’s director of enterprise technology, Dan Jackson joins me on my daily tech podcast to talks about what the technology-powered world of the future looks like. We talk about how technology is transforming the workspace and what changes are on the horizon.

Dan Jackson has been working at Crestron since January 2006. Prior to that, he held positions with Elexos and Zemma Technologies. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering & Economics from Northwestern University and is based in New York.
