Savant announced yesterday that company founder Robert Madonna will assume the role of CEO, focusing on delivering innovative solutions for integration professionals while continuing forward with the successful launch of consumer products established over the past two-plus years under outgoing CEO William Lynch.
“Everyone at Savant would like to thank William for his vision, achievements and leadership while at Savant,” said Madonna. “Under his management, we created strong consumer product offerings as well as key relationships to establish a presence for the Savant brand at retail that will serve us well into the future.”
“I have appreciated the opportunity to serve as CEO over the last two and a half years at Savant. The company has developed exciting new products and channels for consumers and I’m confident Bob and the team are going to continue to have success growing the Savant brand,” said Lynch. The company plans to have Lynch stay on as an advisor to assist in the transition.
With Madonna’s return to daily operations, Savant will accelerate bringing premium solutions to the market quickly, addressing the needs of both CEDIA integrators and the company’s growing retail channel that includes Best Buy’s Magnolia Design Centers and Magnolia Home Theaters nationwide, as well as on BestBuy.com.
