Our Management Team
While working as the Manager for a local electronics firm, Jim realized the need for true custom design and total system installation, as opposed to simply “selling boxes.” Jim founded Audio Video Installations in 1986, focusing his passion on delivering premium, totally integrated, and unique electronic designs. During the next several years, Jim expanded the company to include the addition of security and phone systems, and later, structured wiring, network solutions, systems integration and control systems.

Jim remains AVI’s primary system designer-engineer and systems programmer. He is also the technical advisor on all projects. His hands-on approach to site visits and project management keeps AVI projects carefully crafted, networked,
and completed as promised.

Jim enjoys being involved with NARI, a local remodelers’ association
