Welcome Lawrence Ryefield
NCC is pleased to introduce Lawrence Ryefield as NCC’s Director of Audiovisual and Technology Solutions (AVTS). Lawrence, a graduate of the University of Georgia, received his bachelor degree in Telecommunication Arts, and joined NCC’s AVTS Division in September 2011.
Lawrence brings over 18 years of experience in broadcast and television production with household names like CNN and Fox Sports and several years of management responsibilities for a large AV and multimedia team at the World Bank to our growing division. Having spent six years in the United States Air Force and Georgia Air National Guard, Lawrence is adept at assembling and leading teams and understands what it takes to provide clients with exemplary service.
While working toward his InfoComm International Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) certification, Lawrence will oversee the relationships NCC maintains with AVTS clients, partners, and vendors, and employees. He will also manage established and future projects for NCC’s AVTS division, which has nearly tripled in size over the last year and leveraged many new improvements in technology to our clients’ benefit. We are confident Lawrence will be a significant contributor to our continued success, as he has demonstrated his ability to manage over 200 employees and seamlessly transform operations for a television network that doubled its capabilities by extending broadcasts from 12 to 24 hours a day, within an 18-month period. Lawrence’s background delivering day-and-night operational and maintenance service will be critical to the team’s newest subcontract award supporting the National Institutes of Health; he will direct the NCC employees who provide 24/7 support, 365 days a year, to NIH’s IT Service Desk customers.
When asked what he most looks forward to in working with NCC’s AVTS Team, Lawrence stated, “I enjoy working with a team to find solutions through technology. The field changes so rapidly; it’s exciting to see new innovations and find ways to utilize them.” We at NCC are equally excited to have Lawrence on our team and leading our AVTS staff members as they continue to execute on current projects and prepare for anticipated awards and future growth.
