Our Leadership

Patrick Giovanniello – President
Beginning his career in 1980 as a production assistant and staging grip, Patrick swiftly worked his way through the ranks the old-fashioned way; through hard work and experience in every corner of the events business, when Patrick founded VCI, he literally had the firsthand knowledge of the most complex or the simplest of events.
At VCI, this unique skill set gives us the ability to meet and surpass our client’s objectives…every time. Whether it is a custom built set, working with different unions and in different countries, getting equipment shipped on time and within budget (logistics), developing a mind blowing experience in a ballroom, customized set design and build-outs, or finding the right technology for the right client, you will begin to understand the VCI difference.
Built solidly on a foundation of seasoned expertise, out-of-the-box inventive thinking, an understanding of the latest technology choices, and a commitment to customer service that is unparalleled in the industry. That’s why we continue to have long-term relationships with many of our clients…sometimes for decades!
“It boils down to this…I’ve seen the best and worst through the years. So when I started VCI, I decided to create a company I would be proud to hire if I was in the hiring position. Our foundational philosophy of commitment and service makes VCI second to none. And I stand by that every single day.”
Experience the VCI difference for yourself…Creative Driven by Technology.
