Vince Sanders


About - Vince

Vince’s 24 year tenure in the “custom-integration” business began as a partner with Interior Audio Designs in 1991. At the forefront of an industry that was just getting its legs, installing speakers throughout the home with volume controls and CD source material was a BIG thing. As technology advanced so did IAD, growing into one of the more respected “custom a/v” companies in the Atlanta area.

In 2002 IAD merged with Bertek system’s to form Sensory Solutions, a new collaborative A/V company focused on growing market segments. Vince served as President of Sensory Solutions.

In 2004 the opportunity to launch a new business was presented and Vince joined forces as the founding partner to form Design Lighting Group, a new destination lighting showroom focused on “Lighting Design”. As DLG established its presence in the market the many contacts established in the “A/V” industry over the years prompted the formation of Design Media Group in 2006. Vince serves as the managing member for DMG.

Today, the Lighting and media entities partner on demanding residential projects in the Atlanta market.
