Home Automation Podcast Episode #7: An Industry Q&A With Troy Morgan

This week's home automation podcast features our host Ron Callis interviewing Troy Morgan. Recorded live on Wednesday, June 15th, 2017 at 12:30 p.m. EST. 

About Troy Morgan

Troy Morgan is the President of PanTech Design, LLC, a control system design, engineering and programming firm specializing in Crestron control systems for the residential and commercial industries. The PanTech Design team has over 100 years combined experience in A/V design, installation, and programming, allowing their clients to rest assured knowing they are receiving outstanding designs and remarkable systems. 

Troy's background started in car audio, working through high school as an audio installer, then a sound judge. He then moved on to working in commercial integration in 1997, which led him to Crestron. He worked directly for Crestron until 2005, when he started his own company, PanTech Design. At Crestron, Troy was instrumental in launching Crestron's Dallas, Texas office. He had a myriad of roles and responsibilities at Crestron, starting as an applications engineer and then a key dealer manager for commercial integrator training and support. Troy then switched into a sales role for Crestron as a regional sales manager, which exposed him to the need for a company like PanTech Design.
