In 1990 I moved to Harvey Electronics as Merchandise Mgr. then VP and eventually CEO. During the course of my early tenure the company filed Chapter 11, from which we successfully emerged later taking the company public with a listing on the NASDAQ Small Cap. When I left Harvey in 06, I joined Audio Video System as COO, one of the premiere CI firms in the country. Coincidentally having nothing to do with my presence the company has experienced 40% growth over the past 9 years. We have grown from 50 employees to 72. We are about to embark on what will be the companies most ambitious undertaking which will be the implementation of iPoint control.
