Leading audio visual value-added distributor avt, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Gordon Howell to the role of Strategic Customer Experience – Education.

Holding an MBA in technology management and a Doctorate which investigated academic adoption and use of technology, Dr Howell brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the avt team.

Commencing in his role at avt in January 2018, Gordon will be departing current employer QUT where he functions as Director Learning Environments and Technology Services (LETS).
