PowerShades Names Ryan Chacon New President

Chacon previously served as VP of PowerShades. He will now manage all business operations and direct the company’s growth strategies.

JOPLIN, Mo. — PowerShades, an industry-leading provider of manual and automated window shades for residential, commercial and hospitality applications, announces that company co-founder Ryan Chacon will assume the role of president.

Chacon previously served as vice president of PowerShades. In his new position, Chacon will manage all business operations and direct the company’s growth strategies. Prior to helping create PowerShades, Chacon spent almost 10 years at Leggett & Platt (LEG), holding positions as manager of IoT Products and, before that, advanced technologies engineer.

He has extensive experience in the home theater and automation industries, working as a systems engineer for Audiovisions, the largest residential and commercial systems-integration firm in California, and for high-end audio manufacturer Cello Music & Film Systems. He holds 21 issued patents and two pending patents.

As vice president of PowerShades, Chacon helped steer the company to its current position as a recognized leader in automated and manual window shades for both residential and commercial use. He was instrumental in developing the company’s TruePoE shades which, despite claims from competitor, remain the only real PoE shades in the industry, requiring no injectors or expensive translators.

Jason Turner, company co-founder and former president, will turn his attention to new product development as well as quality improvement.

“With the growth we have experienced over the past couple of years, we saw a need to expand the product development side of the business,” he says. “I’ve been looking to spend more time in that role, and with Ryan moving into the president’s position, I can focus my attention on this critical aspect of our business.”

Turner continues, “We’re lucky to have a guy like Ryan in-house who is already prepared and qualified to steer the ship. With his management experience and institutional knowledge, we will not miss a beat.”
