Kyle Grimm has been at Chelsea Audio Video for 17 years. It would have been 19, but we loaned him to a shop in Alaska for 2 years while his wife Darcy was fulfilling her duty in the United States Air Force. Kyle grew up in Colfax, WA, and first got the audio bug in high school from a friend who was obsessed with bands like Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Stone Temple Pilots. Kyle listened to them constantly, and music became a part of his everyday life.
After high school, Kyle moved to Portland, not sure exactly what he wanted to do. That all changed one day at the movie theater. He saw an advertisement Chelsea often did in the theaters before the movie began and thought it sounded like fun. He came in to do an interview with no prior experience in the field and low expectations. His passion really came through, and he excelled in the warehouse position for 2 years before moving into sales. There, he has been a model of consistency, not only selling, but putting together most of the demos in the store, training new sales people, and researching new products and trends. Keeping up to date with today’s technology is a daunting task!
When Kyle isn’t working, he enjoys skiing and spending time with his wife, Darcy, and children, Max, Lucy, and Simon. His overall passion for the equipment, his clients, and Chelsea drive Kyle to be the best. If you look at his reviews on Yelp, Facebook, and our website, you see will this first hand.
