M3’s Towne Featured in Commercial Integrator

M3 is pleased to share our own Michael Towne and his son, Griffin, were featured in Commercial Integrator for their involvement in InfoComm’s ICIF program.

From the article:

Griffin Towne spent last summer working at M3 Technology Group and learned about the industry alongside his dad thanks to InfoComm International’s International Communications Industry Foundation (ICIF) program.


M3’s Michael Towne calls the ICIF grant program “a great opportunity to run through the summer. It became not only a great opportunity in terms of resources, but also a good way to bring a young person into the company. It changed the approach and attitude of other people in the office to have them mentoring someone else.”
