As one of the pioneers in the independent programming industry, our founder and President Steve Greenblatt has built his career and the company with hard work, dedication, respect, quality, and reputation. His focus on these virtues has contributed to his professional development and is the foundation of Control Concepts.
Steve began his career with Crestron Electronics in 1993 as a Systems Engineer. In more than three years at Crestron, he developed both technically and professionally. While working on two of the largest Crestron projects at the time, Steve learned the value of organization, time management, communication, and professionalism, all qualities which have proven to be essential building blocks of his career. Additionally, the relationships that were formed and the knowledge gained, throughout Steve’s tenure at Crestron, have provided him with lasting benefit throughout the years.
In 1997, Steve acted on his entrepreneurial inclination to start an independent programming company at a time when independent programmers were not mainstream. Although he faced a number of challenges in getting established, the detailed approach, personal attention, and reliable service that Steve holds in high regard propelled Control Concepts to steady growth and the establishment of a loyal following.
Control Concepts now has many sustained customer relationships. CCI has worked with corporations and educational institutions to establish user interface standards and best practices for control system functionality that have been implemented organization-wide. These client partnerships are the essence of why Control Concepts was established.
It is Steve’s vision, leadership, passion for excellence and personality that have been the key elements in his professional growth and have been a driving factor behind his success. He takes pride in the reputation he has built for himself and the company, and the ongoing, beneficial relationships that he has developed with his team, his clients and his partners.
Steve is a graduate of Lehigh University with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering.
