Tampa – Jack Molema was one of the first members of the Audio Visual Innovations rental team when he joined the company in 1987. Twenty five years later, our corporate rental division has grown to include more than 60 team members in five locations.
The Tampa rental team celebrated this milestone at an event in Jack’s honor. AVI Founder and AVI-SPL Executive Chairman Marty Schaffel and CEO John Zettel, along with others who have worked closely with Jack over the years spoke of his strong work ethic and dedication to the company.
“We could never have built a successful rental company without Jack’s great care and attention to detail,” said Marty Schaffel. “I am very grateful for all Jack has done for this company over the years.
“Jack came to AVI when we had only 21 employees,” said Marty. “At that time, it was a big deal to rent a slide projector or a 16mm movie projector. Jack has always shown great care toward our inventory, worked hard to make sure customers were happy, and do whatever he could to make sure the rental department had a successful event,” Marty added.
“Our company and the rental division have experienced significant changes over the last 25 years, but one constant has been Jack and his commitment to his job,” said John Zettel. “Our rental division has grown and improved over the years and Jack played a significant role in making that happen,” John added.
Thank you for 25 great years, Jack!
