About AVR

AVR's President, Joe Hanson, has over 40 years of experience in the consumer electronics industry, and he brings that knowledge to every new business relationship formed by AVR.

Our History

Joe began working as a rep salesman for Forti-ausin Associates and Elrep Sales, after which he became a Regional Sales Manager with Panasonic's Technics division. He later started his own sales rep firm, Creative Marketing, in Atlanta, and joined Teal Marketing Associates, the (then) Kenwood representative firm covering the Southeastern U.S.

Joe became a partner with Teal and upon the exit of his business partner in 2002, Joe was given the opportunity by Kenwood USA to establish a new sales rep firm for the Southeastern U.S. The many positive business relationships Joe had formed throughout his interesting career helped to form the staff and customer base for AVR, which has since grown to incorporate high-quality lines of home theater products and an e-commerce fulfillment division.

Joe's dedication to researching the latest technologies to meet consumer needs has resulted in what AVR has become - an always-growing, ever-evolving company that strives to be the best in the mobile and home electronics markets.
