Media Vision's CEO Makes In-person Delivery for First Assistive Listening Order

Delivering the first order of a new product line to a customer is a milestone for any company. For Media Vision’s CEO, Fardad Zabetian, there was no doubt it had to be a personal delivery. A few weeks after the commercial release of their new assistive listening system, the lucky first customer was known: Plymouth Congregational Church in Coconut Grove, Miami.

It was not for the coconuts or the glamorous location that Fardad jumped on a flight 2 days later, but for this unique opportunity to meet and thank their first client, Plymouth Church, as well as the AV dealer and installation partner – Mike Harris of Harris Audio Systems and Paul van Puffelen of Southern Technical Support – and representative – Jon Ferren of Bencsik Associates.
