Name: Bobby Gatto
Job Title: Lead Technician
Company: Entertainment Technologies
Years in the Industry: I started my career at the young age of 20 and now I'm 39. You do the math.
Major Accomplishments that you’re proud of: I feel my best accomplishment is being well rounded at the whole aspect of the job. From digging in the trenches to being on the PC.
What do you like best about your job?: The best part would have to be being able to work in a variety of different places and working with the high end audio video equipment.
What do you like least about your job?: Extreme weather conditions because the North East can be unpredictable.
Favorite hobby: Besides my "honey to do" list, hanging with the fam.
Last book you read: "Once Upon A Potty" with my son Hunter (he's at that age).
Who is your hero and why?: My better half, Tressa. She keeps it movin' at the home front.
Favorite consumer tech device: Sexy speakers and a sweet amp. Basically, anything I can't afford but get to play with.
What you’d be doing if you weren’t in tech: I like working with my hands and building things so probably a carpenter.
What’s the biggest problem the industry faces today, and how would you fix it?: Getting products on time and things that are on back order that are high demand. Company's projections should be more realistic and keep up with product demands.
What’s your outlook for the CE industry for the next five years?: People will always enjoy good music and good streaming content. And if you build it, they will buy.
