Thommy Hall has been hired as regional sales manager for Vari-Lite and Entertainment Technology, serving clients in the Southeastern United States. Hall brings with him experience selling both the VARI*LITEĀ® and Entertainment Technology product lines. He will work from the Lightolier/Genlyte office in Orlando.

"We are experiencing tremendous response to the new VARI*LITE fixtures, and exceptional growth as we expand Entertainment Technology's product offerings" said Bob Schacherl, vice president of sales. "We expect product demand to increase even more following LDI, so there's no room for a learning curve. Thommy's experience with the VARI*LITE and Entertainment Technology products will allow him to immediately begin serving our customers and providing recommendations and answers to their questions."

Hall was most recently with Barbizon Light of Arizona, an authorized dealer for both Vari-Lite and Entertainment Technology. During his career he has also worked on the client side of the business at theaters and resort venues.

"I am excited about the new product offerings from Vari-Lite and Entertainment Technology, and the potential they have to dominate the market," Hall said. "The companies are committed to providing lighting tools designers can use. I think visitors to the Vari-Lite/Entertainment Technology booth at LDI are going to be extremely pleased with what they see."

Hall will be at Vari-Lite/Entertainment Technology LDI Booth #2600, Oct. 22-24 in Las Vegas. Vari-Lite will debut two new fixtures at the show, while Entertainment Technology will showcase its distributed dimming solutions.
