Global President and CEO of CEDIA

Mike Chorney

As president of La Scala Integrated Media located in Vancouver, BC, Canada, Mike’s passion for music has driven him from his humble beginnings in his garage start up business that eventually evolved to founding and building out the largest retail service provider brands in Canada – Geek Squad (Best Buy), Connect Pro (Future Shop); a far departure from the medical career that his schooling was focused on.  After working for national companies for over 10 years, Chorney took an interest in the home automation side of the business and was the director of sales and marketing for Trends Electronics, which was most notable as the largest Sonance distributor.

Mike has always challenged himself and his team to be the benchmark for quality and has been active in organizations to share in the possibilities and importance of striving for excellence.   Mike has been involved with many children’s charities, served on an advisory council for CEDIA, and is active with the graduating schools hosting events for new interior designers and legacy veterans.  Mike believes that a career with passion and active participation is the best way to share in the art of technology.

Edward Gilmore

In 1988 as a professional classical musician, Ed began a parallel career as an audio consultant to a leading Architectural and Interior Design firm, which included designing, bidding out, and overseeing projects. By 1991, having learned many of the intricacies of custom installation, Gilmore formed his own full-service company, Gilmore’s Sound Advice, Inc. (GSA). Having been involved in the industry since the advent of audio distribution, the infancy of home theater, and witnessing the evolution of the “smart” home and residential control systems, affords Gilmore a broad historical perspective of the industry.

For many years, Gilmore’s Sound Advice strictly adhered to a word-of-mouth recommendation policy to insure the company’s commitment to superior installation and unsurpassed client support. This policy was directly responsible for an impressive, high profile client resume. With the move to an 8,000 square foot facility in 2016, Gilmore created one of the most unique showroom and event spaces in New York City. Additionally, increased workspace allows GSA staff to rack build, program, and test all systems before they leave the facility. This includes the ability to qualify dimming capabilities of LED lighting fixtures. An active member of CEDIA, HTSA, and HTA, a commitment to process, documentation, ongoing education, and certification underscores GSA’s commitment to provide clients with an informed assessment of the industry’s best available options and practices.
