Michael Sherman, our CEO, has just been elected to sit at the CEDIA Board of Directors for the next two years.

After being chosen as the CEDIA Young Professional of the Year 2019, getting the CEDIA Member of Excellence Awards for 2019 and 2020, and winning Best Integrated Home and Technology Meets Design Awards during the last CEDIA ceremony, this news is another great surprise for Michael Sherman and all the HENRI team.

“It is a great honor and privilege that my peers have entrusted me to represent them on the CEDIA Board of Directors.
Since the beginning of my career ten years ago, I have always been very involved in the association.
I am convinced that unity is strength and that the discussions between fellow integrators merging our experiences and know-how, will allow us to develop and ameliorate the home technology industry together.

I am very happy to be able to contribute even more by bringing my experience and motivation.
I hope that my presence on the board will also have a positive impact on the international outreach of the CEDIA.
I can’t wait to get to work, and remain available to any questions, concerns, or open conversation with whomever would like to exchange on a given subject.”
