Vin BrunoRAYVA, provider of turnkey home theater packages, has signed former CEDIA CEO Vin Bruno to its board of directors, effective immediately. Bruno, with his career spanning three decades, joins RAYVA to help promote the concept of pre-engineered home theater packages for the CEDIA community, the luxury builders' market, and their customers.

Bruno was most recently the global president/CEO of CEDIA, where he led the organization to achieve its goal of global alignment and emphasized CEDIA’s commitment to meeting its members’ needs. Before that, he was director of marketing for Crestron Electronics, where he initiated partnerships and managed international teams of marketing and creative professionals. While many in the industry already know of those roles, few knew of his participation as an advisor to the RAYVA executive team even before RAYVA’s launch.

“Vin has been both a friend and a thoughtful advisor to me since the inception of the RAYVA brand,” said RAYVA executive director Theo Kalomirakis. “In early 2016, I shared with Vin my vision of a simplified process for the highly complex designs of high-performance home theaters. With Vin’s encouragement, we launched the RAYVA brand in January 2017 and, with his support, have been able to significantly increase RAYVA’s reach and trajectory. Vin has been instrumental in helping RAYVA excite consumers, integrators, and the builders’ community, alike, and will, ultimately, help expand the home theater marketplace for all.”

In his role on the board of directors, Bruno will further the RAYVA mission and help the team promote the concept of dedicated home theaters designed to deliver exceptional experiences to consumers.

“I’m proud and excited to join RAYVA’s board of directors,” Bruno said. “I will do everything possible to help grow this important business. RAYVA helps our industry to prosper as manufacturers of projectors, screens, theater seats, audio equipment, and controls provide these home theater components, and our community of technology integrators build them for clients, allowing homeowners and their families to enjoy movies the way the directors intended.”
