John Price joins AVI Systems as VP, Managed Services
Managed Services is a critical tenet of AVI's growth strategy.
Today, John Price will be joining AVI Systems in the newly created role of Vice President of Managed Services. In this strategic role, John will be responsible for the profitable growth of all lines of service and support at AVI Systems. John will lead the transformation of our support business to more fully align with IT support models, and to increase our value to clients focused on enhanced user experience, adoption, and utilization.
John will report to Chief Operating Officer Joel Lehman, and will work with Michael Ubriaco to provide functional leadership for the Technical Services managers. AVI’s central support teams will work directly for John in this new role.
