PASSION FOR FAMILY; PASSION FOR BUSINESS
Meanne and Juancho Fondevilla know all about raising a family. The couple has to deal with everyday situations with patience, maturity, and sensitivity. Fondevillas also own Sensitivity Lights and Sounds, one of the most sought after lights and sound providers in the country, covering everything from weddings and debuts to corporate events. But their prosperous business also had humble beginnings. “We started really small, like house parties, weddings in small restaurants and clubhouses.” Little more than a hobby they started over twenty years ago, Sensitivity Lights and Sounds has grown into a state-of-the-art operation, with experience and expertise in lighting, sound staging, draping, and fabrication, constructing themed stages to fit any requirements clients may have. Metal and ice weddings, glass garden debuts, beach events? Sensitivity Lights and Sounds has handled them all. So how do the Fondevillas balance family life and business? Actually, being family-oriented has helped them run their business, according to Meanne. “Having a family makes you more responsible and mature when you’re dealing with everyday situations. Your patience gets exercised very much. You always aim to provide your kids with a good quality of life, and be an inspiration to them. In business, I apply all these things when managing our people. In decision making, in dealing with clients who have di˛erent moods, needs, and wants.”with care, attention, and sensitivity. Surely that’s why the business is named Sensitivity Lights and Sounds, right?
