Charles White, Founder of AVTMC, leads the staff of audiovisual, sound, video, and information technology consultants.

He has worn many hats in his career as an Audio Installation Technician, Audio Engineer, Audiovisual Engineer, Senior Project Engineer, Design Engineer, Senior Project Manager, General Manager, Consulting Design Engineer, and Senior Director.

His career began at the early age of seventeen having a fascination with wires and dismantling and reassembling electronic components around his parents’ home. After escorting his sister and her best friend to a college party, he was mesmerized and dumbfounded with the loudness and clarity of the music and the size of the speakers and equipment that the dj was using. When he returned home, he purchased a record that was played by the dj at that party and was very disappointed at how it sounded on his parents’ stereo system. From that point on, his interest was peaked and so began his career.

Having worked for several prestigious design/build firms in the United States, he has organized and managed the integration of video, sound, audiovisual, and residential systems from conception to completion for hundreds of global companies, including Fortune 100 and 500 firms.
