Mary Ellen began her career with Video Visions in 1997 as a Service Coordinator. Mary Ellen’s enthusiasm to learn everything that she could about the Pro AV market along with her dedication to the organization that her Father had founded was clearly evident from the early stages of her career with Video Visions, Inc. Her leadership abilities combined with her impeccable detail to organization quickly led her to surpass the Service Coordinator position in which she began her AV career and allowed her to grow within the organization.

While holding the position of Operations Manager, Mary Ellen quickly developed close relationships with all of the major Professional Audio Visual Manufactures in the United States and throughout the world.

Between 1998 & 2008 Mary Ellen ran many facets of the organization. Although she remained named as the organization’s Operations Manager she became involved in many more areas within the company. Human Resources, Marketing, Purchasing, Overseeing of Project Management, P&L and Risk Management to name a few. Although she technically ran the position for a long time, in 2008 Mary Ellen was officially named as Vice President of Video Visions, Inc., and in 2009 with the untimely passing of the company’s founder, Mary Ellen was specifically named by the founder to carry on his legacy as the President of the organization.
