Denver-based Josh.ai has hired its first sales rep firm, CET & Associates, to keep up with the rapidly expanding adoption of its technology across the US. Additionally, the AI home control pioneer has named Chad Russell as its first ever National Sales Director.
Josh.ai has been continuously reaching new heights in the luxury residential market by creating strategic partnerships, launching new features, and prioritizing privacy. Recently, the company surpassed 300 US dealers who are fully trained and signed on – a major asset as Josh.ai is on its third production round of Josh Micro. Within a year's time, Josh.ai has added tens of thousands more voice commands and launched its first natural language voice solution for multi-room distributed AV setups.
“We’ve had a fantastic year so far with all of our new feature releases and dealer signups,” says Josh.ai CEO Alex Capecelatro, “and we are thrilled to announce our continued growth initiatives. CET & Associates brings a stellar reputation of success along with a fantastic portfolio of product synergies. Chad’s focus and understanding of UI & UX within control systems and access to content makes him a perfect fit to champion our product line as National Sales Director. We are happy to be working with both of them.”
CET & Associates will represent Josh.ai throughout Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico. The Rocky Mountain region will serve as an extension of the company, but dealers will continue to have direct access to Josh.ai should they need it. Chad Russell will also serve as a valuable resource for Josh.ai as the new National Sales Director. His experience spans across the custom integration channel with his most recent role being VP of Sales at ICE Cable Systems.
"I missed being part of the end users’ system interface, the component which really influences how they experience the technology solutions within their environments,” says Russell. “The emergence of voice control is a distinct landmark in our system advancements. Getting a peek under the hood at how Josh is integrating with partners while maintaining a promise of privacy is a class act solution. Voice is the future of our industry and to be part of an AI platform with such a commitment to dealers meant I had to sign up and go full send with an amazing team."
