Says Tracoman VP Marcel Fairbairn, "Bob spent the majority of his career with touring firms RA Roth and, most recently, Light And Sound Design. Bob brings so much to the table, with his vast knowledge and experience in touring applications, but he also has an amazing attitude and unwavering commitment to getting the job done. I have rarely met anyone with more ambition and willingness to go the extra mile. I have a huge amount of respect for Bob and I am thrilled with his decision to join our team".

Looney will work out of Atlanta.
