Tom joined MSI in 1989 as part of the original San Diego Convention Center team. He developed and organized the first MSI Production Department and his leadership has guided MSI's transition from a small audiovisual house to the full-service production company it is today.
Ed joined the MSI team in 1984 as an AV Technician and was promoted in 1985 to Audio Visual Manager at the Town and Country Resort Hotel, where he stayed until 1991. Ed's next assignment was at the San Diego Convention Center, where he built on MSI's growing reputation as a first-rate production company.

Matthew graduated from Michigan State University in 1989 and moved to Chicago where he went to work for Sound & Stagecraft as an entry level AV technician to support and maintain his festive lifestyle.
In 1992 Sound & Stagecraft was awarded the house AV contract at the new Sheraton Chicago, and Matthew was promoted to assistant manager. Five short years later he was named Director of Audio Visual, and life was good.
In 1997, Sound & Stagecraft was purchased by AVHQ, which was kind enough to move Matthew and his beautiful wife to sunny California, where he worked as the Director of Audio Visual Services at the Loews Coronado.
In February of 1998 MSI had the extreme good fortune to convince Matthew that his festive lifestyle would be a perfect fit with their San Diego Convention Center Team. After 10 successful years Matthew moved to our corporate office to manage the numerous national accounts he had fostered in his time at the SDCC.
Matthew and his wife, Tracey, make their home in San Carlos.
