I was an integrator for nearly 30 years. In fact, I grew up in this industry. (my father owned a small alarm company). After I graduated high school in the 80’s I started working for him installing security systems.
A few years later I struck out on my own. I mainly did phone and cable at first, but as technology advanced, so did I. Against the odds, I built a successful AV business. In 2013, I cashed in my chips.
Faced with what I was going to do next, I started Paul Ryan Design. I’d always been fascinated by web design and digital marketing.
One of the things that most frustrated me when i was an integrator was the utter lack of systems in place for audio video businesses, so I set out to change that and to help entrepreneurs across the country compete on a broader scaIe. Today I help industry leaders, creative AV Entrepreneurs, and small shop hustlers get the respect they deserve (and a fatter wallet) through web design, branding, and other marketing ideas specifically designed for AV companies.
