InfoComm International, the leading professional audiovisual trade association, presented its Young AV Professionals Award to Christina Minihan, CTS, of Visix digital signage and Jonathan Brawn, CTS, ISF, ISF-C, DSCE, of Brawn Consulting. The awards were presented at the InfoComm 100, a conference designed to bring together top AV industry thought leaders and volunteers.
“Jonathan Brawn and Christina Minihan are rising stars in the AV industry,” said Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., Executive Director, InfoComm International. “InfoComm and the AV industry are pleased with all these young leaders have accomplished.”
The Young AV Award was created by InfoComm to recognize up-and-coming professionals in the audiovisual industry. These award winners are held in the highest esteem by their AV industry colleagues of all ages.
In her role as Sales Engineer for Visix, Christina Minihan has created and streamlined business and technical processes that have greatly improved performance within organizational teams, as well as improving customer relations and satisfaction with discovery, engineering, implementation and maintenance/updates of systems. She trains Visix staff on software and hardware products, and has created a valuable documentation library that includes technical and instructional docs, as well as multiple system diagrams.
Prior to joining Visix, Minihan worked for Crestron and PolyVision and earned her MBA. One of her most significant contributions to the AV industry was co-founding the Crestron Owners Group (COG) during the fall of 2007. Soon after joining Crestron, it was evident that the higher education customer base desired a venue to exchange information, experiences and ideas regarding control system design. After presenting a business plan to Crestron executives, Christina and her small team pursued the development of such a forum for open communication about Crestron products.
“I am thankful to be recognized as a young woman in the AV industry,” says Minihan. “I look forward to being a member of the next generation of innovators.”
