President & CEO
Tony started Prestige in 1987 as a high-quality corporate audio visual firm specializing in hotel-based audio visual services management. The customer-focused hospitality-oriented nature of the business has never wavered. “We are not merely an audio visual rental company, but a one-stop hospitality organization that helps our customers create outstanding, memorable events for their guests and attendees.”
Terry joined Prestige in 1995 as CEO. He served in that role until we lost him in 2015. He brought such a unique style of management to Prestige and left such a lasting impression on the way we continue to conduct business that no mention of our organization would be complete without acknowledging his lasting legacy.
