Nicole Verardi

Senior Director of Marketing, AVIXA

When I first started in AV, I remember hearing how AV professionals really care about the human experience, not just the tech. And it's true! I love connecting the dots to help people find the AV resources they need, building communities where people come together and being a part of such a vibrant (and welcoming) industry.

John Cheatham, CTS

Design Engineer, AVI-SPL

Up through May 2022, I managed the AV Engineering & Operations team at the University of North Georgia. We maintained multiple campuses of classrooms with control systems in each and we worked with a team of support technicians who handle work on incident management while we handled incident escalations as well as problem management, change management, and request fulfillment (to use the ITIL vernacular).

I now work as a Design Engineer for AVI-SPL, based out of the Atlanta, GA office. I work with the Account Managers to design systems for customers prior to sales, then work with the post sales team once a system is purchased.
