Syntronic Systems was started in 2008 by Mark and Matt Gerard, father and son.  The dream of owning a business had always belonged to Mark as he had been involved in business and sales for the last 30 years.  It was Matt's past involvement of working with 3 highly regarded audio/video firms as an installer, designer, and salesman (2 were in the top 100 in the nation) that gave them the focus and the passion for the industry.  In 2009, Drew Phillips, Mark's son-in-law, came on board after living with his wife Nicole in Washington DC where he worked in management.    Together, the Syntronic team has devoted their time and energy to see that Syntronic Systems becomes one of the predominant audio/video firms in the state of Michigan.  They have attended many industry events, sat through countless hours of industry and manufacturer's trainings, and completed industry certification courses.  See how Syntronic Systems has an advantage over its here
