Troy Cuvelier, founder and President of iST, admits "As a kid, I was that guy who was messing around with my dad's and friends' stereos.  I was always fascinated by audio-video systems and control technology.  In college, I even took all of my excess student loan money and spent it on a top of the line A/V receiver and surround sound speaker system, and became instantly addicted."  By 1999, Troy started his own business, a D/B/A called "Audio Video By Design," which later morphed into Integrated Smart Technologies, LLC. in 2005 and changed to an S-Corp in 2012.
