4. How do these new colors and the millwork options help dealers and specifiers?
Now anyone can confidently design with both Ketra and Finiré light sources, bringing both together to fit any budget. Clear Connect Type X technology changed the game for how people program and experience Ketra – it’s one seamless system on the back end to provide a better experience for dealers and end users. Now we’ve extended that unification from an aesthetics point of view. Everything — both appearance and technology — is integrated by design. From the light sources to the keypad on the wall and the shades on the windows, we are bringing everything together to deliver one beautiful solution for any customer’s home.
5. Speaking of excitement, as a relatively new arrival at Ketra what makes you happy to be part of the team here?
For some background, my role at Ketra is to focus on residential business development. In this role I work alongside our sales team, rep agencies, and dealers to better understand the needs of our customers, what makes them relate more to Ketra solutions, and any areas of opportunity. We then take the feedback and make it usable for us internally to understand our customer journey, determine product roadmaps, new sales tools, and more. In turn, we also take the latest updates from Ketra and ensure our customers have the latest and greatest information from us. Although 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, Ketra has continued to invest, innovate, and deliver products to our customers. Despite tough conditions, we were able to meet our dates in delivering the new generation of Ketra technology, while continuing to invest in our production facilities, and add enhancements to the D3 line. I’m proud of our people, and happy we can offer customers ways to make their homes even more welcoming, bright, and comfortable right now.
6. You’re also a newcomer to Ketra’s hometown, Austin. Any advice for those who come visit?
I always wanted to end up in Austin when I was attending Baylor University just up the road in Waco. I’d been with Lutron for 8 years and always admired Ketra’s technology so when the opportunity came up to join Ketra in Austin, I jumped on it. It was a great chance to work with an exciting product and company in a city that I love. I think one of my favorite things about Austin is the food scene. I was spoiled with restaurants when I was working abroad in the UK for several years, but being a BBQ lover, Austin is world-class. When you come to Austin to visit our Collaboration Studio and experience Ketra’s products, grab some Franklin’s BBQ -- both will change your life!
