Daniel Kerkhof has been appointed Director of Marine Business EMEA

We are pleased to announce that Daniel Kerkhof has been appointed to take the position of Director of Marine Business EMEA effective immediately.
In this role, Daniel will be responsible for growing TIG’s sales across the marine sector focussing on TIG’s partners Crestron and YachtCloud. Based in The Netherlands, Daniel will be the go-to contact for TIG’s existing shipyards and ETO’s as well as developing new relationships throughout the EMEA region. Daniel will educate the decision makers and influencers for this market in order for them to fully understand the benefits of installing a fully automated system. Additionally, Daniel will head up the creation of Crestron’s Authorised Marine Dealer Network.
On his new position, Daniel 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”.
