FYI (One piece of advice to
another dealer): " Talent is
knowing who to take advice
from and who not to. " ; " You
will succeed because somebody
else wants you to;
benefit by networking and
setting up relationships. "
YOU COULD SAY being a trail blazer is
in the genetic makeup of Global Wave
Integration president Kyle Steele. Indeed, his
father Larry Steele, was an actual Trail Blazer,
as in a member of the NBA's Portland Trail
Blazers, where he spent the entire 1970s
playing nine seasons including the franchise's
lone championship (1976-77) team.
And just like his dad, Kyle Steele is blazing
a path as a key member of an elite squad, in
this case as an integration company that is an
early adopter and evangelist of cutting-edge
technology in wellness/biophilia, aging-inplace/home
health and even residential projection
mapping. Burbank-based Global Wave
Integration recently bought its showroom
building and uses the location as a showcase
to perform at a high level catering to luxury
clientele in the highly competitive Southern
California market.
As president of Global Wave, Steele can
also lean on Larry Steele's lessons from his
head coaching days for the University of Portland
men's basketball team, which spanned
the mid-1980s to mid-90s. Kyle Steele has
instilled the kind of team play and innovation

from Global Wave's staff that would make
both his dad and Hall of Fame coach Jack
Ramsay (now deceased), who guided the Trail
Blazers' title team, proud to see succeed.
By perfecting business processes that make
everything run smoothly, Global Wave is able
embrace new technologies that allows the
team to take on large-scale, six- and seven-figure
projects and cater to elite VIP customers.
Audio Engineering Background
Pays Off
While Steele's own basketball career did not
reach the NBA, he did spend time on the
practice squad playing hoops against guys
who would later make the pros during his
college days at the University of Arizona,
where he studied digital systems engineering.
Like many integrators, Steele started
