Steve Schnugg – Owner, Sales Engineer, Crestron Certified Master Programmer
Steve has more than 20 years of industry experience and holds the highest level of certifications from our most important vendors, including as a Crestron Certified Master Programmer since 2003, and all certifications available for Lutron residential lighting and shading design and installation. In addition to servicing our own clients, Steve has built Synergy Multimedia and Motion Shading into a regional resource for other dealers requiring assistance on the largest and most technical projects, fostering a collaborative rather than a competitive spirit amongst other local integrators, which is rather unique in the industry.
