"When I started at Control4 in February 2006, we weren't in any stores. We started in three stores in the fall of that year and have grown to 315 in five years. The biggest thing was developing a strategy and a plan. Control4 is unlike any other product that is sold at retail, so we had to work this strategy from the highest level within the organization and prove out pockets of success. There are only a few time frames in a year when you can to get into a retail store. We went from three stores to 13 to 54, and finally to 315 last fall. Needless to say, last year was a long year."

Hobbies: Koutsky has always loved playing baseball, having played since he was five through college. Now he enjoys coaching his son in baseball. "For the first time, I am not playing but coaching and I love it. The second biggest thing that I love to do is listen to audio. I love all genres of music but I have yet to earn an appreciation for classical music. Any other types I will listen to."
