Toronto-based AV integrator Advanced has announced the appointments of Scott Murray Anderson to the position of System Programmer and Senior AV Specialist, and Daniel Heald as Project Manager.
According to Advanced President David Weatherhead, the appointments have been made in "direct response to Advanced's steadily increasing number of integration projects.
"This year," he says, "we have seen substantial growth on the integration side of our business. That's why Advanced is investing in industry experts that can guarantee the highest level of customer satisfaction and successful project implementation. We welcome Daniel and Scott to the team, and look forward to their contributions."
Anderson is a certified Crestron programmer with over seven years of experience in the field of audio visual equipment installation, maintenance and service. He previously served as the programmer/integration manager at SDMA Custom Audiovisual, where he was responsible for automation programming in various deployments, as well as on-site and off-site project management.
As a TCE1 Cisco Certified Engineer Level 1, with earned certifications in Crestron CTI P101, CTI P201, and DM-D 4K, Anderson is also a Crestron Partner with access to all of their services, and is a member of the Toronto Carpenters Union. In addition to his Crestron expertise, Anderson has mastered solutions by manufacturers such as Biamp, QSC, and BrightSign, all which will be beneficial in his new role on the Advanced team, says Weatherhead.
Heald is returning to Advanced after serving as the senior installation technician and site lead at Genesis Integration. Before that, he rose through the ranks at Advanced, working as an AV technician for three years, and as a contract technician for one year.
Heald has earned many certifications in Extron XTP-T, Crestron CTI-Fusion-P, Crestron DMC-T-4K, Crestron CTI-P301 Advanced Programming Skills, SynAudCon, and Biamp Tesira's line of products.
"We are certainly proud of the rapid growth Advanced is experiencing throughout North America, and our ability to attract top-tier industry talent is just another indication of our success," says Mark McPherson, Executive Vice President of Advanced. "Scott and Daniel both bring immeasurable experience and insight to Advanced's integration team. We are thrilled to have them on board."
