We often say we have the best team members. And that's true across our three brands: Wolfers Lighting, System 7, and The Boston Shade Company.
Today, we shine the spotlight on Dan Vassallo, who works as a field manager on the project finish team for System 7.
How did you first learn about System 7? What drew you to the company?
Dan: Todd Gaito, our director of sales, used to work with my wife at a previous company. I had only met him a few times, but he remembered that I was in the A/V industry and reached out when System 7 was growing and looking for field technicians.
At the time, I was on the commercial side of the region's A/V industry. For five years, I'd been working on big commercial build-outs as a field technician. Then, I spent about a year as an outside salesperson for a smaller commercial A/V integrator.
So Todd called, and we talked at length about System 7, the culture, and the caliber of work. That led to a call with the president of the company, Gerry Lynch. This conversation completely shattered my preconceived assumptions about the "dreaded" residential A/V industry.
