President and CEO

Mike Twist

Mike enjoys his role as AVID's President and CEO in Middletown, RI.  In 1961, in collaboration with TWA, AVID developed the first in-flight entertainment headset for commercial passenger use.  Electronic headsets continue to be a core product in the company’s product portfolio.  Today AVID provides entertainment and comfort items to a variety of markets including travel, fitness, hospitality, education, and healthcare.  Mike’s focus over the last five years has been on transitioning AVID from a low-cost provider business model to a more sustainable value-add model. The company’s core values: empowerment, collaboration, expertise, and ingenuity, are the driving tenet behind the company’s transition and growth. In 2013 Mike assisted in the creation of the AVID ESOP, which purchased 33% of the company on behalf of the employees. The goal was to purchase the balance of the shares making AVID 100% employee owned, and today AVID is a fully employee-owned company.  Advancing the ownership culture is Mike’s newest challenge.  When not working, you can find Mike on or in the water, sailing or surfing.
