As a continuation of ETC's sales growth strategy, David Hilton has been promoted to fill the newly created position of associate regional manager for the western United States. In this role, Hilton will assist Randy Pybas, West Coast regional manager, to form and execute sales strategies and offer increased customer support to one of ETC's largest regions.
Hilton received a bachelor's degree in Theatre from the University of Southern California with an emphasis in lighting design and production. He worked as a freelance lighting designer, director, and technician in the Los Angeles area, working for companies such as LA Ballet and LA Opera, as well as designing for Festival Theatre USA which performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
In 2007, David joined ETC as field project coordinator for the western sales region, training end users, conducting product demonstrations, and forming strong relationships with customers, representatives, and dealers over the years.
"David has been an integral part of our sales efforts in the region, and on the whole," says Pybas. "With his product knowledge, customer relationships, and market insight he is the perfect complement to the regional strategy and I look forward to working with David to expand the sales connection with our customers."
