“This relationship with Compulite is very exciting and rounds out Creative’s
portfolio of the high quality products we distribute,” says CSL president George B. Studnicky III.

Kevin Loretto, CSL’s director of dealer sales, adds, “Creative Stage and JB-Lighting embrace very similar philosophies—to provide high quality, reliable products that are ecologically friendly. We feel certain that our dealer network will be extremely excited with the entire JB lineup.”

Creative Stage Lighting’s newest hire, product manager Michael Nevitt, will be providing full-time support of new product offerings, including Compulite and JB-Lighting products in North America. Nevitt is a veteran of the lighting industry. His design and automated lighting programming experience includes work he's done for feature films such as The Grinch, Batman & Robin, The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, and Miss Congeniality. In addition, he has worked on top sporting events like the Salt Lake Olympics, Super Bowl Half-Time Show and the Ryder Cup Opening Ceremonies. Nevitt also brings product management experience from Martin where he worked on the development of Martin's Maxxyz Console and Maxedia Media Server.

“I’m excited to be a part of the Creative Stage Lighting team and to help drive innovation in our industry through top-level products like those of Compulite and JB Lighting," says Nevitt.
