As a combined effort amongst all shareholders including AVEX, our global company GPA reached the Number 1 position for 2022 on the SCN Top 50 AV Systems Integrators. The annual rankings published by Systems Contractor News solidifies the scale and presence of our global organization and comes following a year of massive growth across the audio visual and collaboration industry. For AVEX and GPA, having the largest global footprint of any AV integrator enables us to better support the AV/UC needs for our customers wherever their offices are based.
“SCN’s annual Top 50 recognition has long been a practical reference for a multitude of stakeholders to understand the key players and organizational shifts across the industry.” Shared Byron Tarry, CEO of GPA globally. “It has also been an annual opportunity also a chance for those within the recognized companies to celebrate the role they have played in their own organization’s growth. It’s under that premise that I am most excited about this recognition, a testament to the 4800 diverse, passionate, and globally committed individuals that power our global GPA community and have built GPA into the powerhouse this ranking confirms.”
GPA represents the new collaborative shared economy. Our 26 expert Regional Business Units (RBU’s) united in purpose and focus under a single-shared ownership structure, have more than 4,800 expert staff to deliver more than $1.4 billion in annual AV/UC related revenues. As the GPA team in the United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg AVEX delivers projects locally for our GPA customers providing world-class products and services to multinational organizations globally.
“While we’re proud that our combined global revenues earned us the number one ranking by revenue, we believe our unparalleled global footprint is even more important to our customers,” said Jeff Stoebner, CEO at AVI Systems and GPA’s newly elected Chairman. “That global footprint provides us with the ability to support the AV, UC and digital media needs of our customers wherever they may have operations. Our business has changed dramatically in the past two years, and we’re particularly excited about our ownership position in GPA, which allows us to extend our delivery and support capabilities around the world.”
