San Francisco, CA / June 17th, 2015 — Women in AV (WAVE), a global organization dedicated to promoting the growth and performance of women in the AV industry through education, networking and mentoring today announced Jill Renninger, Owner and President of IMS Technology Service Inc, has been selected to receive WAVE’s 2015 Mentoring Award. The award was presented at the InfoComm 2015 NSCA/FSR/SYNNEX Women in AV Reception.
“I am honored and humbled to receive this award. We have grown IMS from renting projectors from our basement to managing events and system installations across the country and around the world… we’re not a huge company, only 80 people, but that’s still 80 people… and that’s really where I believe mentoring comes into play”, says Renninger.
Any company can rent gear, truck equipment across the country or install AV systems. We pride ourselves in building a team of highly skilled and creative people, and it’s their talent and dedication that makes the difference between a one-time customer and, and lasting and loyal customers.
Our Team is the PRIMARY reason we’ve experienced the tremendous growth throughout our 20 year history.”
Women in AV are grateful to Listen Technologies for sponsoring this important industry award for the third year in a row and greatly appreciate their on-going efforts and support to encourage the development of WAVE.
“We are delighted to recognize Jill with this award for all the mentoring that she has done within our industry,” said Cory Schaeffer, Co-Founder & Vice President of Business Development Worldwide at Listen Technologies. “She is an outstanding role model of how rewarding it is to support and uplift others. She has given selflessly to her company, aspiring young women in AV, and her community. I love that she is being recognized for it with this 2015 award. It’s nice to recognize and share with others all of her efforts.”
“WAVE received many excellent nominations for the WAVE Mentor Award”, said founder Jennifer H. Willard. “Jill stood out to our judges because she demonstrates the type of leadership and inspiration we need in our industry.

We are thrilled to celebrate and recognize Jill for her outstanding service and dedication as a mentor to not only young women following in her footsteps, but, the AV industry as a whole.”
