The Team

Our History

In 1980, Brad Luckhart began working in the audiovisual rentals world with an audiovisual rentals and sales service company in Columbus, Ohio. He started out the rental shipping and receiving warehouse. In 1983, he accepted the position of Assistant Audiovisual Rentals Manager with a national audio visual firm at the Hyatt Regency and Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. Recognizing his passion for the field and his hard working attitude, Brad accepted the title of Branch Manager of Audiovisual Services at the Hyatt Hotel in Winston-Salem, NC in 1983.  Taking a leap of faith, Brad and his wife, Marjorie, packed up their station wagon and two young children and moved to the beautiful Piedmont area of Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Seeing the need for a comprehensive audiovisual rental and event production company that not only carries the most up to date, high quality equipment in event inventory, but also places a priority on superior customer service, Brad and Marjorie bought the branch office of a national audio visual production firm in Winston-Salem, NC, and AV Connections, Inc. was born. Beginning with a closet sized office in the Hyatt Hotel, Brad and Marjorie built the foundation of AV Connections, Inc. with the core principles of honesty, loyalty, and hard work. By remaining true to their core principles, AV Connections, Inc. grew into one of the leading audiovisual companies in the United States.

In 2002, AV Connections, Inc. expanded its operations and opened AV Connections SC in Charleston, South Carolina. Under the management of Jared Luckhart, Brad and Marjorie’s son, AV Connections SC established itself as the preeminent audiovisual rental and event production company in the Lowcountry. Jared has guided AV Connections South Carolina along the path to success using the skills and lessons learned through growing up with the company and following in the footsteps of his parents, and by leading the company into new markets and avenues of expansion.

Today, you will find that the same core principles upon which Brad and Marjorie built the company in the 1980’s are still in practice at AV Connections, Inc. This truth is apparent in the way we respect our clients, how we treat our employees, and through the friendly and welcoming environment we promote in the office and on the job site.

“After working with the team from AV Connections, Inc. on several projects, I am confident that they can accomplish anything that we come up with. They have exceeded our expectations each time and are a great resource for new ideas. We have been 100% satisfied with their services and truly enjoy working with them.”
