Control4's West Hands Off to Plaehn
In an interview Thursday, former Control4 CEO Will West commented on the appointment of Martin Plaehn as President and Chief Executive Officer of the company.
“We're not really changing our strategy, but we are growing at such a fast pace- -30 percent [or more] a year—that we have to have the right people in place," West said. "We need the correct people to take us from a 100 million dollar-a-year company to a multi-hundred-million-dollar-a-year company. We believe that Martin Plaehn, with his vast exeperience, deep tech acumen and strength in matrix-based operations is the right person for the job and also very importantly, he is a good fit with the company.
Plaehn is a former Product & Service Development at RealNetworks and was also CEO of both Bungee Labs and Viewpoint Digital.
