Andrew Wight
                          Owner Partner                                    President / Director of Sales


Born in Castor Bay, New Zealand, Andrew came to the United States on a work Visa in 1990, where he took a job at Australia New Zealand Direct Line. There he not only earned his stripes in the very strategic and intense environment of pricing, but also gained a true understanding of what it takes to get the job done and done well. This is also where he met Carol, who would become his partner in business and in life. After a few years with another audio visual company, Andrew and Carol started AV Dimensions. The rest, as they say, is history.

Those who work with Andrew know he is truly dedicated to his clients. He will do anything possible to make their experience with AV Dimensions an excellent one. He is extremely knowledgeable and responsive. Andrew shares his expertise with clients to assist in identifying solutions that work best for any scenario. He makes himself available to discuss plans with designers during the planning phase - rather than after the build or the final plan is in place - to assure the client is delivered the absolute best to meet their goal and the outcome they envisioned.

When Andrew isn’t planning thoughtful solutions for clients, he loves golfing, RV’ing, scuba diving, skiing and any vacation spent with the family.

Carol Wight
                             Owner Partner                                 Director of Development


Customer service and satisfaction have always been primary focuses in Carol’s career. Her years of work within the steamship cargo industry allowed her to explore many fields, offering a unique opportunity to learn the insides and outs of a business, and how to make it prosper. Carol assisted in the successful implementation of ISO 9000, a quality management standard that presents guidelines intended to increase efficiency and consumer satisfaction.

In 2000, Carol and Andrew began AV Dimensions. Carol has played an integral role at AV Dimensions since its inception. She’s focused on the company’s growth from a process, procedure and marketing point of view. Carol is personally involved with all areas of the company, working to expand AV Dimensions and develop the best group of associates in the business.

When she’s not traveling the globe for work, Carol loves hiking, camping, RV’ing, long drives or walks of any kind, golf (although not very good, she’s a good sport), a good book, good movie, card or board games. More than anything, Carol loves a good laugh.
