Crestron Holds Engineering Career Fair at Rockleigh, NJ World Headquaters

Crestron Continues to Grow Despite Slow Economy; Seeks Engineers to fill Multiple Positions

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, - Crestron today announced the success of its first Engineering Career Fair last week, which attracted more than 200 enthusiastic candidates to the company's world headquarters in Rockleigh, NJ, a high -tech campus that includes the 100,000 sq. ft. Crestron Research Center. Since the Research Center opened in April 2007, Crestron has dramatically expanded its engineering staff, hiring 150 additional hardware and software engineers in the last two years. Crestron is now seeking to fill 40 new engineering positions.

"The Research Center and all of its resources have really accelerated the rate at which we develop new technologies and product concepts," said Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. "Hiring even more engineering talent will allow us to use that momentum to bring more products to market faster."

Holding the event at Crestron headquarters gave prospects many unique opportunities: to see firsthand the latest control and communication technology being developed, tested and produced; to speak directly with department heads, and tour the 8,000 square foot Crestron Experience Center, where the end results are on display. "To really understand the extent and 'wow' factor of our offerings, you have to see products in context; it's a truly eye -opening experience," Bruno explained.

Job seekers expressed appreciation for the chance to "actually meet the director of the department," and found the technology equally impressive - "especially that home theater!" One hopeful candidate observed, "It says a lot that you're hiring in this down economy."

"We met some very strong candidates," said Betsy Longendorfer, Crestron Director of Software Tools Development and Quality Engineering. "I also liked the ability to take applicants through the Experience Center, so they could see the final product in a real world environment."
