Shen Milsom & Wilke is pleased to announce Tom Edge promoted to Washington, D.C.’s Office Director.
With over 25 years of experience in the AV industry and 13 years at SM&W, Tom Edge, Associate Principal, was recently promoted to Washington, D.C. Office Director. Joining SM&W in 2008, Tom Edge brought more than sixteen years of experience in the audiovisual industry to SM&W DC’s AV team. He began his audiovisual career as a recording engineer one of Washington, D.C.’s largest recording studios, working with artists like Barbra Streisand and Barry Manilow. After his studio work, Tom ventured into the high-end residential world, where he designed and installed AV systems in the homes of some of the most powerful people in Washington, D.C., and, later, into the commercial AV industry, where he installed, designed and engineered AV systems for government, higher education and corporate clients.
Tom’s years of hands-on experience naturally led to project management and administrative management positions. As a project manager, he has successfully overseen the installation of multi-million dollar AV systems, and, as a company executive, he has managed the operations and installation departments for three of Washington, D.C.’s top integrators, most recently as Vice President of Strategic Operations.
“We are delighted to recognize Tom’s leadership and long tenure at SM&W with this promotion,” says Tom Shen, President and CEO. “Tom’s vast audiovisual and professional experience coupled with his knowledge of the D.C., Maryland, Virginia (DMV) area and familiarity with clients will continue to be incredibly valuable to SM&W. We look forward to seeing our Washington, D.C. office grow under Tom’s leadership.”
Prior to his work in the audiovisual industry, Tom was a public-school teacher, teaching instrumental music to third- through – twelfth-grade students. He continues to be an active musician in the Greater Washington, D.C. area.
