Avidex, a provider of audiovisual and collaboration technology solutions, announced on September 12 that Jeff Davis was appointed CEO following Gary Kolbeck’s departure. Previously President and COO, Davis’ appointment took effect September 1. 

“We are incredibly grateful to Gary for the passion and humility he exemplified as CEO over the past four years,” said Davis in a press release. “During that time, he played a pivotal role in the integration of three separate companies and unification under the Avidex brand. As a result, we are in a strong position for continued growth and expansion. I am honored to step into his shoes and to help guide Avidex in its next chapter of success.”  

Avidex is the eighth largest audiovisual systems integrator in the U.S. serving the corporate, education, healthcare, government, houses of worship, hospitality, entertainment, and banking markets. The company has charted an aggressive growth strategy, which Davis will help to accelerate. The strategy centers on continued geographic expansion, growing the company’s solutions offering, as well as renewed focus on mergers and acquisitions. During the pandemic, the company propelled its internal efforts toward digital transformation and streamlining of systems and processes to re-position its platform for future acquisitions.  

“This is an exciting time for Avidex,” said Davis. “As we embark on this next chapter, I am confident that the exceptional dedication and performance of every member of our team will drive the sustained growth and success that has firmly established Avidex as a frontrunner in our industry.”
