It all began in a garage…

How MPG Came to Be

In 1983 founder Francis Collette started his AV career in Arizona.  After becoming a sought-after projectionist and armed with an entrepreneurial spirit, Francis and his new wife, Kathy, moved to California and founded Multimedia Presentation Group in 1989.  Together, out of their garage and armed with a Barco Data 600, they nurtured and strategically grew their business.
The model back then was simple; provide a service that is based on integrity and quality with a talented team of experienced technicians and honest business values to lead the way.  Over 30 years later, Francis and Kathy continue to deliver those core principals.  MPG offers outstanding service, an expansive warehouse filled with a large inventory of the latest in AV gear, and an inspiring team of highly ethical experienced technicians.
