ClearTech was founded to provide something that every client deserves, but hardly ever receives: the peace of mind that comes from knowing their needs are truly being met.
Out of a conviction to elevate the client experience, we have redefined service and support in AV integration.
Guided by founder Christina DeBono and CTO Joe Perez, ClearTech is a reflection of the clients we serve. We’re also an example of what can be achieved by channeling diverse perspectives, insights and cutting-edge expertise to empower organizations to thrive amid the transformation of today’s work and learning environments.
