With stints at ETC and Vari-Lite International behind her, marketing maven Anne Valentino has returned to the East Coast. She has joined the PRG Lighting Group in the newly created role of vice president of marketing, directing the efforts in that field for all the affiliated companies from the Production Resource Group's office in North Bergen, NJ.

Says Valentino, "Through acquisition and recruiting, the PRG Lighting Group has gathered together some of the brightest and most talented people in our industry. I have known many of these people for years and have a great deal of respect for them. I am truly honored to become a part of this team." PRG Lighting Group president Steve Terry adds, "Anne brings a tremendous amount of talent, experience, and strategic vision to PRG. I am very pleased that she has joined us."

In the meantime, Bill Gallinghouse, who held the title of vice president of sales and marketing for the Lighting Group, is now the vice president of sales.
