Trey Merrill has joined the sales team at the Agoura Hills, CA-based AC Lighting, Inc.

Originally from Baton Rouge/New Orleans, Merrill has been involved both on and off stage in the music and film industries for a number of years. He worked as a music critic, band manager, production and stage manager, high steel climber, guitar and drum technician and set carpenter before forming his own production company, Gator Bait Productions. He recently was associate producer of the film The Midnight Hour and is currently producing the debut album for a young Louisiana artist Benjy Davis, featuring Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Lucinda Williams, and members of Cowboy Mouth.

"Joining AC is such a great opportunity," says Merrill. "Having been involved with wholesale entertainment lighting sales for the last couple of years, it’s great to work with a superior line of products and to have the company's focus be on customer service.”

Bob Gordon, AC president and CEO, states, "Trey is a great addition to our team here. His experience in the industry and his enthusiasm makes him a very welcome addition to our family.”
