Meet Our Directors
At Av-Comm, we’re a solutions-focused group of engineers, technicians, product developers and project managers committed to the potential of satellite communications in an evolving and increasingly networked world. We work to deliver solutions that speak to the specific technical needs of our customers and work with a growing network of partners and specialists who believe, as we do, in the integral role satellite communications plays in our modern world.
Av-Comm was founded by Garry Cratt and was born out of an interest in the new technology of the day : Satellite Television. Av-Comm provided the first domestic Ku Band system in Australia which gave many people their first connection with the world outside of their local community.
Garry Cratt is a satellite communications and infrastructure industry expert. He has over 40 years of senior management experience, including executive leadership positions with several industry leading companies and was an influential member of the Dick Smith Electronics management team before establishing Av-Comm in 1981.
Garry is also the author of the Practical Guide to Satellite Television, one of the industries most trusted handbooks for satellite installers having sold over 5000 copies Australia wide.
