Tom Atema Jr. • Owner/CEO

Tom opened Media Visions’ parent company, Atema Partners in 2008 with the goal of making the company relational above all else. As it blossomed into what today is known as AP Live, it quickly became the premier provider of audio visual solutions for corporate meetings and events, as well as large-format video support for concerts, festivals, exhibits, and everything in between. So when the opportunity came along to add Media Visions to the Atema Partners family of companies, it was a perfect fit. As one of the entertainment industry’s leaders in live production and integration/permanent installation services, Media Visions offers unparalleled levels of expertise, and Tom could not be prouder to be part of such a world-class standard bearer.

He took that knowledge, expertise, and a desire to provide the highest level of client service, and began Media Visions in 1993. Mike and his team became a go-to leader for live production and integration needs during the next 25 years, and he proudly still serves as one of the top sales engineers in the business.
