We have a team of experienced engineers and programmers based in the south of France and in the UK who are all passionate about technology and motivated to provide the best solutions for our clients.


Gemma Sanders

Gemma is the sales director and co-founder of AV Riviera. Gemma oversees all of our major projects from meeting the client on day one through to their completion, ensuring that every element of our clients requirements are met and exceeded along the way. This involves working with our design and technical team to ensure that they have a full understanding of a projects requirements. Gemma moved over to Europe from Australia 10 years ago. Prior to this she began her audio visual career fresh out of university with a major in electrical engineering, this was followed up with an electricians trade certificate during her time at her first AV Company. Based in the central business districts of Australia, she worked to build high end video conferencing and meeting rooms for multi national companies as well as carrying out residential projects. Gemma initially moved to the UK for a new challenge which saw her career moving away from hands on installation and over to project management and sales. Gemma successfully ran the marine department of a well known UK company for several years meeting Dan during this time. After meeting her husband and moving to the south of France with him Gemma realised the potential for an AV company that would exceed the current services being offered, this is when AV Riviera was born. Outside of work Gemma enjoys various fitness activities as well as spending time with her young family.

Since the companies inception in 2009 he has been the lead in terms of specifying systems and ensuring our clients expectations are met with our bespoke solutions. Dan is also a director of our sister company AV Synergy in the UK which he has run since 2007. Dan spends his time between France and the UK overseeing our current projects and the specification of new ones. Prior to founding AV Riviera Dan had worked in the high end audio visual industry, at the early age of 16 he joined a well respected company who carried out work in the residential and marine markets. In a couple of years Dan became the leading programmer at the company however he always had an ambition to work for himself and so became an independent programmer at the age of 19, leading him to form AV Synergy a few years later. This early experience working with high end projects and clients has proved invaluable and led to him having a work ethic based on high quality and customer satisfaction. Outside of work Dan has a passion for cars and even races a classic mini when he gets the chance!
