SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Jan. 22, 2019 — RTI, a leading control and automation manufacturer for residential and commercial settings, today announced Clint Forberg as its Director of Training. Previously serving as RTI's Central United States Regional Business Manager, in his new role Forberg will oversee all RTIXCEL training programs, including the RTIXCEL Online learning management system (LMS), live TechTalk webinars, RTIXCEL Live on-site training seminars, and the three-day RTIXCEL Experience, hosted at RTI headquarters in Shakopee, Minnesota.
Forberg has 30 years of experience in the CE industry. Since August 2017, he has been responsible for sales management and business development for RTI across a 16-state territory. Previously with the company, he served for nine years as Director of Training and Eastern U.S. Sales Manager. Forberg has also held the position of Director of Dealer Development at Kaleidescape and has contributed to the growth of companies such as Bose Corporation and Clifford Electronics through sales, management, and technical positions.
"Clint's in-depth knowledge of the custom installation industry and RTI products is second to none, and throughout his career with us he's played a pivotal role in both our training initiatives and sales efforts," said Ed McConaghay, CEO of RTI. "We couldn't be more excited to welcome him back to his role of Director of Training, and can't wait to have him at the helm as our RTIXCEL program takes off."
"It's great to be getting back to my roots at RTI," said Forberg. "Dealer training has always been a high priority for the company and something we're known for throughout the industry. The RTIXCEL program takes our efforts to an entirely new level, providing a variety of options to accommodate integrators' busy schedules and preferred learning styles. It's a one-of-a-kind offering, and I look forward to helping it evolve with our dealers' needs."
