OMNIMOUNT PROMOTES TWO INDUSTRIAL DESIGNERS AFTER SPEARHEADING AWARD -WINNING PROJECTS

Both Keith Charvonia and Patrick Plehn, the designers of recent award-winning products, have been promoted to Industrial Designer II status for exceptional design work.

OmniMount, the leading manufacturer of consumer and commercial A/V mounting and furniture solutions, today announced the promotion of both Keith Charvonia and Patrick Plehn. Both have been with the company for five and a half years and have been named Industrial Designer II.


Charvonia and Plehn were integral parts of the design process on two products recently honored by CEA with 2010 Innovations Design & Engineering awards. While they work collaboratively with a team, Charvonia spearheaded the design of the omnimount (OMF), a revolutionary mounting system that enables do -it -yourselfers to mount a flat panel TV anywhere on a wall, without the need of a stud. Meanwhile, Plehn took the lead on the OmniLite Series™ OL200FT, the flagship product in new eco -friendly line of mounts that are designed and packaged with the environment in mind, so they do more while using less.

"Both Keith and Pat have incredible enthusiasm for design, great technical skills and a finger on the pulse of market trends. They've been developing innovative products for OmniMount for several years now and have always been regular contributors to the breadth of our expansive product offering with their concepts," said Michael Townsend, their manager, and the senior mechanical engineer for OmniMount.

Charvonia and Plehn are proud graduates of Arizona State University's prestigious Industrial Design Program. Both gentlemen plan on continuing their award -winning work and are currently developing a new line of LED mounts unlike anything currently on the market.
