Avyve is pleased to announce the promotion of Chris Bell to President & Chief Operating Officer.  Chris is an original founder of Avyve and has held the position of Chief Technology Officer for fifteen years.

“Chris has been instrumental in the development of our key processes, management team, as well as, the technical departments at Avyve” says Merry McCleary, CEO of Avyve. “He has mentored and managed all aspects of the technical teams including engineering, CAD, programming, integration and installation” Early last year he took over the management of the Service Group and oversaw the development of our new Service Management Software. “The time is now for him to take the reins of the Project Development and Administrative teams to bring consistency and cohesiveness to all aspects of Avyve.”

Chris Bell has been in the audio visual industry since he graduated from college. He is considered by many manufacturers to be one of the best engineers and technical minds in the industry.

“We have such a strong core of managers and team members in place at Avyve,” says Bell. “They are all very passionate about their particular expertise on the team and it comes through to our clients.
