Matthew Zaleski, President
Matthew Zaleski has been involved in the A/V industry for over 25 years, and his family has been involved for much longer. Matthew started at Data Projections as a salesman in 1991, and as President, he oversees every aspect of the company, including maintaining relationships with partners and manufacturers. Under Matthew’s guidance, Data Projections has cemented its position as a leader in the A/V integrator industry, especially in Texas. It’s this commitment to the area, as well as top notch people at Data Projections, that makes it a top firm, according to Matthew. He takes pride in leading these people as they accomplish some of the most innovative projects an integrator can offer.
Matthew attended both the University of Houston and Texas Tech University, so he is a native Texan through and through. When he’s not meeting with partners or clients, or overseeing operations at Data Projections, he enjoys attending family sporting events and working on his golf game.
Robby Turner, Executive Vice President Of Sales and Marketing
As the Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Robby Turner is responsible for communicating Data Projections’ message to clients and partners alike. It is a role he has filled since 2012, though his history with Data Projections goes back much further. In 1997, he wanted a new challenge in a new industry, and Data Projections was one of the promising up-and-coming A/V integrators at the time. Now that Data Projections is a market leader in Texas, Robby is responsible for working with a talented team to ensure the company remains at the top of the field. Robby particularly enjoys working with customers and manufacturers directly, and creating long-term partnerships.
Robby graduated from Texas Tech University, a place that holds special significance to him, as he met his wife Julie there. His free time is dedicated to his wife and two sons, and together they attend sporting events and enjoy outdoor activities.
Megan Stasio, Vice President Of Operations
Megan Stasio joined Data Projections in 2010 as the company’s HR director. Three years later, she stepped into the role of VP of Operations, while maintaining oversight over HR as well. She’s up for the challenge and has enjoyed the quick pace and deep thinking that her position entails. Her background is in telecommunications, making her transition to A/V technology a natural one. She was drawn to Data Projections specifically for its people-focused culture and commitment to community and partnerships. It’s this culture that Megan emphasizes in everything she does with the company.
In addition to linking all of Data Projections’ departments together, Megan plays an essential role as someone who is always reviewing the company’s processes. In this role, Megan challenges Data Projections to always improve on its already high standards.
Megan graduated from the University of Texas, which is a cause of some consternation between her and her Aggie husband. Together, they have four children. Outside of work, family is her top priority, and she cherishes the time she shares with them.
Kris Begnaud, Regional Vice President
Kris Begnaud got his start in the A/V industry just one year out of college, transitioning from insurance to a field he could be passionate about. He joined Data Projections in 1993 as a salesperson in Houston, a time when Data Projections was still largely an equipment provider solely. Kris’s role has grown with the company, and in 2010 he took on a regional VP role in Austin. As a Regional VP, Kris’s goal is to ensure every partner and vendor is given dedicated attention. One moment, he may be overseeing an integration to ensure it is executed to the numbers, and the next he may be consulting with a manufacturer to discuss new products.
Kris takes pride in the relationships he has forged with Data Projections’ partners, and believes that the company’s commitment to its partners and its people are what sets it apart.
Kris graduated from the University of Texas in 1992 and is a self-proclaimed sports encyclopedia. When he does have free time, he spends it with Bailey, his wife of over 20 years, and his three children.
Scott Lehmann, Regional General Manager
Scott Lehmann got his start in the AV industry over 30 years ago as a live sound engineer. He’s been an installer, an engineer, a project manager, an operations manager, and spent five years working with the defense industry. Though Scott has focused on performance audio for most of his career, he is especially passionate about operations and processes. He has focused on establishing a high level of excellence during his time with DPI while maintaining the family-oriented culture that Data Projections is known for. According to Scott, consistently delivering a quality integrated system isn’t difficult, as long as there is a commitment to the process.
Scott graduated from Oklahoma State University with a BS degree in electrical engineering technology. He has been married to his wife Kathleen for over 16 years, and together they have three boys. When he finds time away from work, Scott spends it with his family (catching episodes of Hogan’s Heroes or Home Improvement) or at the range.
