USIS AudioVisual’s Scott Gantkin Named a Commercial Integrator Magazine 40 Under 40 Industry Influencer of 2021
A career path in AV highlighted for its positive impact on the industry
September 2, 2021 | NEW YORK NY – USIS AudioVisual, delivering design/build/service solutions for a digital and built environment’s AV technology stack, announced that Senior AV Design & Sales Executive, Scott Gantkin, has been named a Commercial Integrator Magazine 40 Under 40 AV Professional of 2021. The annual list spotlights influencers under the age of 40 making an impact on the audiovisual industry.
“After a nearly 20-year long career in an industry I didn't know existed when I first started setting up projectors, tripod screens, and powered speakers, I am honored to be listed amongst my peers on this year's 40 Under 40”, said Gantkin. “Spending late nights taping VGA and XLR cables down on the floor of the ballroom at Omni New Haven Hotel at Yale, I never imagined then that I’d now be designing the distributed audio system for Rockefeller Center’s iconic Skating Rink, along with other Rockefeller properties. Thank you to our great teams at USIS AudioVisual and USIS, Inc. for the amazing support.”
Scott began his AV career at the age of 19 learning how to gaff down cables for hotel events. He took on increasingly senior roles from there: Technical Director for MetLife responsible for all AV production and logistics; Technical Producer at IAC/InterActive Corp designing AV for over 150 events annually; Production Sales Manager at Blackbird Theatrical Services; and AV design and sales leadership at several leading AV integration companies. At USIS AudioVisual Scott manages one of the company’s highest profile clients, Tishman Speyer, responsible for design & integration of high-performance audio systems throughout New York’s Rockefeller Campus.
“We are incredibly proud to see Scott join Commercial Integrator Magazine’s 40 Under 40 alumni”, said Theresa Hahn, VP of Marketing at USIS AV. “Scott’s path represents so many aspects of our AV industry and opportunities for growth, no doubt inspiration for those already here as well as others looking to launch a career in AV. Well-deserved congratulations to Scott and all of this year’s 40 Under 40”.
The 2021 “40 Under 40 Professionals” feature is Commercial Integrator Magazine’s eighth annual, highlighting individuals making a difference in their organization and the industry.
