David Oberman, the former CEO and president of the Obie Company, a mainstay of the concert lighting industry for 28 years, has joined Production Resource Group, LLC as senior vice president of business development. He will be based out of the Fourth Phase, Burbank, CA office.

Oberman made his mark as a pioneer in the use of theatrical lighting and rigging techniques in the trade show industry. As a result, the Obie Company was integrally involved in major events such as The Olympic Games, The Papal Visits, and The Grand Prix Races.

In his new role, Oberman will join the senior management team, with his main focus being on developing the national and international corporate meeting and trade show effort. He will build strategic relationships and explore new markets for all of the PRG companies.

"We’re very excited about David coming on board," says Jere Harris, chairman and CEO of Production Resource Group. "His experience and reputation in our industry is a complementary addition to PRG."
