(Spiceland, Ind.) - Draper, Inc., has announced the hiring of a new National AV Consultant Manager.


Industry veteran Steve Cook will work with Draper to support AV Design consultants and projection manufacturers.

Cook comes to Draper after 30 years in the AV industry, mostly with projector manufacturers AmPro and NEC. Cook started in 1982 as an engineering technician with Kloss Video Corporation. Kloss worked closely with Draper to introduce video projectors and projection screens into the residential market.
