Our Team

Frank B. Yarborough, President and CEO

919.388.0203|frank.yarborough@avconusa.com

Frank is probably one of the most energetic, passionate people you will ever meet. He is a native of Cary and a 1986 Business graduate of NC State University who began his career selling technology with the likes of Harris Lanier Corporation and Canon. He knew he found his niche when he entered the creative and challenging audio-visual systems world in 1992. Every project was different, but his drive to match optimum solutions with exceptional customer service was not. Frank consistently outsold his quotas and took great care of his clients, but he had aspirations of starting his own company. He did just that in 1997 in the basement office of a friend’s corporation. After only five years, he received the Triangle Business Journal’s award for “Excellence in Sales” in the Research Triangle market. Remember that energy? Frank not only leads the company, but also manages client relationships and supports the sales team. He is CTS and EAVA certified and loves to lead and train others. He was the C-12 “Member of the Year” in 2009 and the recipient of the Cary Chamber of Commerce Community Service Award in 2010. If he has spare time, you’ll find Frank with his family, coaching a special needs baseball team, or playing drums. Frank was inducted into the Miracle League of the Triangle Hall of Fame for serving as a head coach with the league for 10 years, and is still going strong.

At AVCON he is responsible for the day-to-day oversight of engineering, installation, safety, warehouse and inventory management, quality assurance, fleet maintenance, facility planning, cash flow management, contract review, and regulation compliance. With exceptional business savvy and focus, he sees the big picture like no one else and keeps the near and long term planning for the company in view at all times. Nick loves family, guitars, riding Harleys, and teaching the Bible.

Not everyone gets complimented on a weekly basis for a job well done, but Ron does. He is our Service Manager extraordinaire, and clients are constantly calling to express appreciation for his help. His attention to detail and servant’s heart make him an important part of our team. Not only does the buck stop with him in that department, but he also trains and oversees the whole service team. He makes sure that each technician completes a comprehensive training protocol so they are fully prepared to repair and maintain our client’s investments. His dedication, strong work ethic, and positive attitude help make AVCON one of the premier AV companies in the area. When Ron is not driving an AVCON van, he enjoys family time, music, and a friendly game of cards.
