In addition, the two partners will be addressing event attendees Tuesday, Feb. 1, 11 a.m.–12 p.m. in a session titled, “Now More Than Ever, Installation Matters!” The panel members will discuss the implications of common installation shortcuts on modern applications. The panel of industry experts includes:

  1. Jason Finnegan, Copper Product Manager, Legrand
  2. Jay Grasso, CDCD, Field Sales Engineering, Legrand 
  3. Kevin Kearney, RCDD, DCDC, NTS, Director, Field Sales Engineering, Legrand
  4. Corey Lacaire, RCDD, TECH, Field Sales Engineering, Legrand
