Rick Loudenburg, manager of western operations for Barbizon Light, announces the hiring of Leonard Miller to the position of sales manager for the south central region. In this new role, Miller will be responsible for the development and support of boxed goods, expendables and systems sales in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas. He brings to Barbizon over 18 years experience in the technical production of live entertainment for theatre, theme parks, cruise line and the themed entertainment industry.

"I am extremely pleased to have Leonard joining us," says Loudenburg. "He understands the entertainment and architectural markets thoroughly, and has worked on every kind of entertainment project imaginable on varying scales — from educational, regional and Broadway theatre to feature films and television, touring shows, theme parks, themed attractions, cruise line entertainment and the convention and exhibit industries. His diverse background, experience and customer service skills will benefit both new and existing Barbizon clients, and increase our responsiveness in a business that relies on timely response."

With the hiring of Miller, Barbizon will continue to develop its sales efforts and presence in the growing markets of system design and installation for educational institutions and houses of worship, while also reinforcing and increasing the market penetration of its’ core business of expendables and boxed goods to the south central region of the country. Says Loudenburg: “this new resource will enable us to offer an even higher level of across-the-board customer support.”

Miller, a graduate of Montreal’s Concordia University Fine Arts department with an Honors Degree in Technical Production and Design has worked for over eighteen years in just about every aspect of the business. “All my sales efforts are going to be towards delivering and exceeding the type of service levels that I expected when I was a customer," he says. "Purchasing has been a vital component of almost every position I have held during my professional career, so I have a tremendous awareness of the expectations and support needs of our customers.”

Miller will be primarily based in the company's Dallas office in North Texas, and can be reached at 972-416-9930 or at lmiller@barbizon.com
