AVI Systems announced the acquisition of Avyve, an integrator of AV solutions headquartered in Peachtree Corners GA, near Atlanta. The two companies will combine their Atlanta offices into Avyve’s physical location. When fully integrated, AVI Systems will serve the entire southeast United States with AV services and solutions.
Avyve founders, CEO Merry McCleary and President and COO Chris Bell, will join the leadership team at AVI Systems. All Avyve employees will continue in their current roles with the combined company.
“Avyve is the most professionally run organization we have ever seen in our industry,” Jeff Stoebner, President and CEO of AVI Systems, said. “Merry and Chris should be very proud of the business they have built. We’ll honor the Avyve legacy as our combined business grows and serves clients throughout the southeast U.S.”
Avyve was founded in 1998 as an AV solutions integrator with a focus on technology solutions for corporate workplaces. Over the last decade, Avyve has expanded its service nationally, designed and built a 15,000-square-foot Experience Center and launched Merris, a manufacturer of connected conference room tables. Both the Experience Center and Merris will become part of AVI Systems’ offerings.
“Joining the AVI Systems team is truly a dream come true for me.” McCleary said. “From our first meeting, I quickly realized the alignment we had in regard to vision and corporate culture. By coming together, Avyve can better serve our clients and alliances, nationally and globally.”
The transaction is scheduled for completion on December 1. The combined companies will operate under the AVI Systems brand.
