Corporate AV Services Expand With Three New Team Members

Corporate Audio Visual Services announces the hiring of three seasoned pro sound and video experts. Kenneth Chiocchi joins as Business Development Manager, Rob Taylor is the new Warehouse and Inventory Manager and Gabriel Añel will serve as Audiovisual Engineer.

“These talented professionals bring a wealth of experience and expertise in the event production field,” said Joe Guilderson, President of Corporate Audio Visual Services (Corporate AV). “One reason why we are able to remain competitive in a crowded marketplace is because we recruit top-tier talent from around the region who help us deliver the seamless service and results that our clients are looking for.”

With more than three decades in the industry, Kenneth Chiocchi has developed a stellar reputation and a range of connections. In his previous position as Regional Vice President of Operations at PSAV, he supervised operations, sales, and staffing at 24 locations in the New York City region that generated over $75 million in annual revenue.

Rob Taylor recently joined Corporate AV after more than 20 years managing a variety of events from the smallest to the largest of stages. Before this, he served as an Account Manager for Boulevard Pro and for Alto Music, where he managed equipment rentals, sales, backline and events services. He also worked as an Account Executive at PRG, where he managed equipment rentals and sales for corporate events, special events
and off-Broadway productions.

Gabriel Añel brings a range of experience to his new role at Corporate AV. He recently served as Audio Department Manager at Bentley Meeker Lighting and Staging in New York City, where he led multidisciplinary teams that ensured client satisfaction at a range of events. As Director of Audio Services at Frost Productions, he helped design permanent installs at the Bronx Zoo, the New York Botanical Garden, the Central Park Zoo and 583 Park Avenue.

Añel has also provided audio support on tour with an array of musical acts from indie rockers to prominent names, including Helmet, Jimmy Chamberlin of Smashing Pumpkins and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.

“We are committed to investing in the local economy in Westchester,” said Guilderson. “As business grows, we will continue to actively hire, which illustrates that the region is on the upswing.”
