Control4’s West to Step Down as Chairman
Control4 announced Monday that cofounder Will West will resign his role as chairman of the board. Current CEO Martin Plaehn will add the chairman title, effective with the new year.
“The Company has never been stronger from a product, partner, position, and leadership standpoint,” West said in a statement. “The market for the connected home is enormous and I feel great about leaving with the Company in Martin’s capable hands and positioned to lead the industry into the future.”
“We thank Will for his foresight and a decade of tireless commitment to laying the foundation of success for Control4,” Plaehn said. “Will co-founded our company ten years ago with the vision that the connected home would make life better and change the way people live by making all the systems of the home work together. We’re delivering that vision today for customers around the world and have plans to continue to enhance how people live by integrating the connected devices in their homes and businesses.”
