Steve Terry recently accepted a new role as director of standards and industry relations at ETC. Lighting technology has changed significantly in the past several years and the move to solid-state lighting systems has been rapid. In this new role, Terry will continue his work on codes and standards in order to accommodate these changes. Additionally, he will act as an active resource for ETC customers, specifiers, and consultants on system design, code, and technology issues.
Terry sums up, “After 16 years at ETC, and 13 years running the R&D department, I’m really looking forward to this new role that will keep me in touch with ETC’s customers and their needs, as well as actively participating in many standards efforts that are important to both ETC and the larger lighting industry.”
Steve Terry’s professional career began with the Dance Theater of Harlem, where he toured internationally as their production electrician. In 1976, Terry was responsible for the first computerized lighting-control system on Broadway, for A Chorus Line. That same year he also became the executive vice president and chief engineer for Production Arts Lighting.
Terry joined ETC’s ranks in 2001 as vice president of Professional Services after many years as a consultant. In 2004, he became the vice president of Research and Development, and now steps into the newly created position of director of standards and industry relations.
