DETROIT, MI – CTI, a communications technology solutions provider for integration and live events, has rebranded TVS of Detroit to CTI (CTI).

CTI acquired the assets of TVS in April of 2017 and has operated as a division of CTI in the last year.

“By adding the group in Detroit, we have significantly grown our capabilities in the creative services division to support our customers for their events, digital communications, and content needs for improved user experiences,” said John Laughlin, President and CEO of CTI

The Audio/Visual installation division will continue to be directed by John Rose, an industry veteran with 25 years of experience building strategies for growth, operational improvement, and leadership, to boost CTI’s integration presence in the Detroit area.

“The opportunities in Detroit and throughout Michigan continue to grow, and bringing the deep expertise within CTI to the area to clients I have built relationships with over the course of my career improves resources for those in need of AV/IT infrastructure and communication solutions that help them work better,” said Rose.

Tony D’Annunzio from TVS has been named the Event Solutions Director for the Detroit location and will lead the team from the facility in Troy, Michigan. With a long-standing presence at the Cobo Center in downtown Detroit, he will also direct the CTI Studio and Creative Services for event production in that location.

“Live event production services have been our primary focus in Detroit for many years, but joining forces with CTI will expand our ability to incorporate technology installations for our customer’s facilities and throughout Detroit in a new way,” added D’Annunzio

CTI employs over 400 people throughout the country with twenty locations as providers of high-end AV equipment rental and event production for meetings, conferences, weddings, trade shows, expos and more. As a turn-key integrator, they also deliver system design, engineering, and implementation
