Romano is president of Avid Solutions Inc., a CSIA Certified control system integrator based in Winston-Salem, NC. “It’s an exciting time to be a part of CSIA. We’re focusing our resources on creating maximum value for our members and their clients, plus we’re rolling out innovative new benefits,” says Romano. “With our continued growth, we can expect CSIA’s influence to expand and elevate the industry and everyone associated with it.”
Romano succeeds Stephen Goldberg, director of information technology at Matrix Technologies, a founding member and CSIA Certified member headquartered in Maumee, OH. During Goldberg’s term, interest in CSIA membership by system integrators located outside of the United States grew significantly, and the organization adopted a global strategy to serve an increasingly diverse, international membership. In addition, great gains were made in educating system integrators’ potential clients about CSIA. Goldberg will continue to serve on the board as immediate past chair.
