Last month, veteran Sydney integration business DJW Projects was sold to Marrickville firm Buzz AV Projects, and principal Dave Coxon sat down to talk to CX about it. Dave now finds himself back in the news with the announcement that he is joining distributor PAVT, continuing to operate in the hospitality and entertainment scene that he knows so well, not just in Sydney, but nationally.
Long known for his championing of PAVT-distributed brands EAW, Powersoft, and Symetrix, the newly created position is a natural fit. “Dave was such a great business partner for PAVT, we couldn’t let him leave the family,” says Graeme Stevenson, Managing Director of PAVT. “Dave has a profound understanding of the regulatory, technical, and practical nature of hospitality, and has been consistently delivering excellent work in partnership with us for over 16 years. We’re really happy to keep his knowledge and experience in the industry.”
“As an Install AV contractor over the past 16 years, I have watched technology advance dramatically,” says Dave Coxon, “and I have been privileged to work with many talented people. As the chapter of my life involving lots of after-hours commitments winds down, I look forward to new challenges. I am looking forward to working with the team at PAVT in my next adventure. Through the DJW days, I developed a love of PAVT’s brands, primarily because of their sonic qualities and reliability.”
“I hope that going forward with this opportunity enables me to pass on any useful knowledge I have garnered over those years to the next generation,” concludes Dave. “It’s about passing on the baton, so to speak.”
Dave will begin his work this coming week, and will join PAVT on their stand at Integrate, running in Melbourne from Tues 27 to Thurs 29.
