The service will utilize the latest in equipment and technology, innovative techniques, and expert crews to supply each customer with an industry-leading service.
This strategic expansion, combined with Production and Entertainment, provides Shepard customers with a full complement of services making them a single-source solution for all their event needs, according to Shepard officials.
Danneman has 30 years of experience in the AV industry, providing services to tradeshows, conferences and events.
He has held sales and operational management positions in four nationally recognized AV companies.
Prior to joining Shepard, Danneman spent 21 years with a leading AV provider, where he was responsible for more than 20 national touring productions for corporate clients, associations and trade shows.
“I have been working with Shepard for most of my professional career; I am excited to lead the launch of this service for a company I already feel a part of,” Danneman said.
