Diversified has announced the acquisition of Rutledge AV. An AV integrator based in Australia, Rutledge AV’s client-base enables Diversified to provide local support to clients in the Americas, EMEA and APAC.
“I’m very excited for this endeavor, expanding our capabilities into the Australian market and being a true global technology partner for our clients,” Fred D’Alessandro, Diversified Founder and CEO, said. “The Rutledge team and everything they’ve built is a testament to their strengths as an organization and the synergy of our cultures, always a key deciding factor, promises continued growth and opportunity.”
Founded in 1979 by Michael and Sandy Rutledge, Rutledge AV has become an AV integration specialist with offices across seven states and territories, and over 350 AV professionals. “I’m delighted to have found the perfect home for what has been my life’s work,” Michael Rutledge said. “Sandy and I look forward to seeing the company continue to thrive as part of the Diversified family.”
Rutledge AV will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Diversified, continuing to be a partner to its clients while introducing Diversified’s portfolio of offerings. Andrew Morrice and his team will lead Diversified’s expansion into Australia, helping establish the company’s operations in the region.
