Kent joins SAVe with over 38 years in the AV industry – 20 years focused specifically on technology and sustainability. Kent has written extensively for national and international publications on sustainability and technology, taught major colleges and universities and at InfoComm as adjunct faculty, created training modules for U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and was involved in the creation and administration of the Sustainable Technologies Environment Program (STEP).

“I look forward to bringing my passion to continuing my long history within the intersection of sustainability and technology across the ICT industries through my contributions to SAVe and the community of technology manufacturers, consultants, end users, and integrators,” says Raymond Kent, SAVe board member.
“Ray’s experience in both sustainability and the AV industry brings invaluable knowledge to the mission of SAVe,” says SAVe Founder and CEO, Christina DeBono. “From his work with the initial Green AV Network and continued involvement in the STEP program, to serving as adjunct faculty for both AVIXA and Cuyahoga’s Community College’s Center for Creative Arts, we’re thrilled to have him join the SAVe team.”
