Systems Architect Ryan Holmes, has continued to progress from strength to strength since he joined Visavvi as Project Manager in 2014. We are extremely proud to announce his much deserved recognition in this year’s Inavate 40 under 40 list.
Ryan commented, "It’s an absolute privilege to have been listed in the Inavate 40 under 40 awards – I really enjoy overcoming the challenges and hard work that goes into my role, but it’s great to be acknowledged for it! I thoroughly look forward to what’s to come from working in such a fast moving, ever evolving industry."
After emigrating from South Africa with a young family in 2007 to continue his thriving career in Audio Visual, Ryan has always put technology at the heart of what he does. Driven by deploying this to the maximum benefit of clients, his passion for system design and engineering excellence has been a crucial aspect of winning some major projects.
Not one for standing still, Ryan is hungry to learn more and recently passed six new industry certifications, including Dante Level 3, Cisco CCENT and Prince 2. He applies this constant learning each day and is fast to support and share his experience and learning with other colleagues, positioning him as a highly regarded and respected member of the Visavvi team. At the start of 2020, he was promoted to manage the South Design and CAD Teams; providing design guidance, training and drawing standardisation – as well as becoming a member of the Senior Leadership Team.
"It is not often you find someone with the highest level of technical understanding and the ability to present his vision to clients in such a clear and professional manner. In response to the post Covid-19 client requirements for returning to the office, Ryan has developed a range of small medium and large room solutions including descriptions, BOM’s, schematics and visualisations", said Dave Raymen, Visavvi Regional Business Manager.
One of Ryan’s many satisfied clients enthused, "Having access to Ryan has been invaluable to my efforts, especially when working on bespoke and complex solutions. He has saved me countless hours of research, kept me up to date on developments and has been a great soundboard to bounce ideas off. I place complete trust not only in his vast knowledge but also in his professionalism and presentations skills when working under pressure on complex solutions.
