January 2017

Join us in congratulating Christine Charron and Dave Rothwell on their 15th Anniversary here at Nova Visual Products, (January 21, 2002, – January 21, 2017). A true rarity these days, especially in our industry that’s seen so many personnel changes over the past several years.

 

Christine 15 Dave 15

 

 

That’s why we can say with confidence that Nova Visual Products has the longest assembled team of AV professionals in Ottawa, (if not the entire Country) working today.

 Since 2002, Christine Charron has been the first voice you hear when you call for Nova Visual Products AV EXPERTISE! Whether it’s to book an installation date, check delivery of your order, confirm a price, or set up a repair service call, it’s Christine that gets it done each day for our clients. Always prompt, always here, always reliable Christine exemplifies what customer service means to Nova Visual Products. 

 Dave Rothwell, hired on the same day, had a ton of experience before joining Nova Visual Products in 2002. Originally hired for his repair abilities, Dave has saved our client’s money either by fixing or recommending you don’t, and allows us continue to offer after sales service that is simply unparalleled by any other AV reseller in Ottawa.  Always in a good mood, always willing to take the time to listen –share a joke or two, Dave’s laid back approach to customer satisfaction and respect for all, is simply timeless.

 I’ve said it before it’s like ground-hog day around here. And while that may not be exciting to some, it makes for more consistent reliable service for our clients, our suppliers, and all of us here at Nova Visual Products.

 So ya, we’re celebrating for sure, and wanted everyone to know why. Thanks Christine and Dave, we really appreciate your dedication, commitment and loyalty to NVP and our clients who depend on you every day.

July 2016

Join us in congratulating Guy Parent on his 15th Anniversary here at Nova Visual Products, (July 23, 2001 – July 23, 2016).  Certainly an achievement in any industry these days, and one that should not go unrecognized.  Guy’s commitment to our client’s satisfaction is one of the major contributing factors that have made Nova Visual Products the success we are today.  And for that we say thanks Guy!

Guy 15

We like to joke at Nova Visual Products that it’s like ground-hog day around here.  Not much changes from day-to-day as we carry-out our daily routines.  Still focused on saving our clients time, money and frustration on any project in need of our AV expertise, Guy’s experience and factory training has allowed us to deliver consistent-proven solutions day in and day out for clients choosing to partner with us. His willingness to listen to client’s requirements, ability to present optional solutions, clearly laying out the pros & cons of each one, and always offering honest-experienced reasoning gives our clients confidence in knowing we have their best interests in mind.

Guy, along with his co-workers at Nova Visual Products is the longest team of AV professionals in Ottawa, (if not the entire Country) assembled and working today.  It is because of this familiarity of practices and procedures between ourselves that we can respond to our client’s in a concise and timely fashion.  There is never any doubt that Guy can solve & satisfy any requirement – as we know firsthand just how seriously he takes his responsibilities here at Nova Visual Products and to our most important assets, you – our clients.

Factory trained and certified, headed off for more training in the fall to increase his Crestron programming expertise.  Here’s to another fifteen years…one day at a time.

Again congrats, Guy, and thanks for your commitment and dedication to all of here at Nova Visual Products.

Sincerely,

Mike St. Louis

President
