CHUCK DEVRIES

 

Chuck has owned and operated several businesses. Audio Video Advisors is the culmination of those experiences. As a partner in ‘Dennis-DeVries Builders’ Chuck built custom homes throughout the Upper Valley and Northern New England, giving him a hands-on appreciation of the construction process and the needs and concerns of builders, contractors and architects. Chuck’s love of new technology launched ‘DeVries Digital’ in 1995. He and his team subsequently installed over four thousand mini-dish satellite systems throughout the region.


LEN CALANDRELLA

 

Len’s background is in the world of Information Technology, as a systems analyst and designer, programmer, and project manager. He has worked with computers all of his life, and has been a music lover since he got his first transistor radio. He gets to combine both of these in his work with Audio Video Advisors, creating exciting systems for our clients. Len is an unapologetic winter lover, spending as much time as possible playing hockey and skiing with his family.
