BEAVERTON, Oregon — Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative networked media systems, announced that its Director of Channel Strategy – Paging, L. William Nattress III, CTS-D, CTS-I, has been selected as the InfoComm 2017 CTS® Holder of the Year. An annual tradition by InfoComm, this award recognizes outstanding AV professionals for their contributions, leadership, and commitment to excellence.
An industry veteran, Nattress has been active with InfoComm International for 17 years, serving essential roles with the Board of Directors and the Leadership Development Committee, the Professional Education and Training Committee (PETC), and the Certification Subcommittee. He was instrumental in the development of InfoComm International’s CTS certification, which has become the industry standard.
“Early in my career, I learned from many industry volunteers how to ensure a quality customer experience within installed AV solutions,” said Nattress. “The InfoComm-sponsored courses taught by Fred Dixon, Scott Sharer, and Gordon Moore provided me with a solid foundation to address the needs of the environment. They encouraged my passion for the art of audiovisual technology, illustrated how communication technologies support that art, and taught me how important it is to pay that education forward to the next generation of AV professionals. The CTS certifications I achieved assure my clients and customers that a best-in-class experience can be achieved with the solutions provided. I want those who follow to feel that same confidence and pride in the service they provide.”
