A new group of industry veterans have formed for the purpose of launching six regional trade shows covering the entire U.S. – three shows taking place in the fourth quarter of 2014 and another three shows in the first quarter of 2015. The group says that this event – called The Tech Tour – came about as the result of manufacturers, representatives, and media representatives working together to provide dealers and installers a new easy-to-attend regional tradeshow and educational event.
The DaVinci Group, Inc., a young but rapidly growing manufacturer of custom integration products, announced today at the 2014 ISE show that Jeff Francisco has been named President of the company. Francisco has been the company’s Vice President of Sales for most of the last year.
According to the company, this announcement is part of an overall expansion of its executive team, as the company seeks to build up its infrastructure to better address its rapid growth.
