"What Clients Have Said"
“Always count on him”
I've worked with Michael for almost 20 years starting at Westwood Marketing then at Avodah Publishing. Michael has always been direct, honest and a pleasure to work with (not to mention a great friend)! I know if I ever needed something from Michael (business or personal) and it was in his power help me, I could always count on him. I hope to work with him again some day.

“Above and Beyond”
We have been a Premiere HTS dealer for many years. We have found the quality to be outstanding and even more important for us as a dealer, we have found the support of Westworld M&D to be equally outstanding. Michael has gone above and beyond countless times to help us with sales and information.

"Just Flat Gets It"
I have known Michael Laurino and done business with him for over a decade. During that time frame we have gotten to know each other very well, I understand what has made him a successful businessman and mentor.
It’s that he truly values the clientele, the dealers & their relationships that he is involved with. Michael just flat gets it and he knows how to do the right thing every time.

Michael is the person whom I look back on and see how he shaped and molded me moving forward in my business life. He took me under his wing and mentored me in many aspects of work and life. Michael is a go-getter and able to see not only the big picture but every detail too.

Michael is a dedicated and driven business professional who has a firm belief that a successful business plan begins with a strong focus on maintaining a proactive approach to customer relations. I have worked closely with Michael for 10 years while we built WestWorld Distribution from the ground floor to a Top Rated Audio Video Distribution Company in Southern California. Michael is an asset to any company that is looking for a professional who is focused on delivering results while still not loosing sight on the business relationship with the customer.

I worked with Michael Laurino on and off for decades, and he is very bright, hard-working, and he thinks out of the box. I would describe him as tenacious, relentless, and very focused. He is street-wise and has good instincts. Highly recommended.

Michael and his company have been suppliers of great seating to many of our theaters over the past 8+ years. What I get with Mike is consistency of performance, accurate information and timely results. Many of our projects are dead line intensive, Michael’s chairs are typically the last thing to go into place and he has delivered every time. I trust and rely on him and never been disappointed.

I could say much about Michaels’s deep, industry leading credentials for he is a man of varied talents. However, Michael’s finest traits are summed up as Driven with Integrity! He has deep, cross-functional industry knowledge, contacts, credentials and is definitely a person that has “been there, done that” providing an advantage when developing a business plan, negotiating a deal or simply giving advise.

I met Michael Laurino in the early ’80s when he became the M&K sales rep for Southern California. He represented the company for over 25 years, and his energy, passion and extraordinary sales skills helped make SoCal the company’s biggest market. I’ve long admired his relentless entrepreneurship, which has taken him to continuing success as a rep, publisher and as a manufacturer. Michael’s straightforward approach and solid integrity drive everything he does.
