The Entertainment Services and Technology Association (ESTA) has announced the election results for its 2003 Board of Directors. The new directors are:

  • Mark West, re-elected as affiliate vice president (president, Downhome Productions)

  • Rick Rudolph, re-elected as dealer director (vice president, Stage Equipment & Lighting, Inc.)

  • Fred Mikeska, elected as manufacturer director (marketing manager, Creative Stage Lighting Co., Inc.)

  • Greg Meeh, elected as affiliate director (CEO, Jauchem & Meeh, Inc.)

In addition, Cindi Manning of Vincent Lighting Systems has been appointed to fill the recently vacated position of dealer vice president and Patrick O'Rourke of Big Apple Lights has been appointed to fill the remaining two years of Cindi's previously held position of dealer director.

ESTA would like to extend its sincere thanks to two longtime and extremely effective board members who stepped down from their positions recently due to employment changes. Beverly Inglesby and John Booth made significant contributions to the association during their tenures and will be greatly missed by their colleagues and the ESTA staff.

The new board members take office on January 1, 2003. Continuing to serve on the board will be president Mike Wood of High End Systems, manufacturer vice president Tom Young of J.R. Clancy, treasurer Frank Stewart of Specialty TECH Services, secretary Erik Magnuson of The Magnum Companies, dealer director Tim Hansen of Oasis Stage Werks, manufacturer directors Wally Blount of Columbus McKinnon and Graham Likeness of Pathway Connectivity, and affiliate directors Warren Cunningham of CommuniLux Productions and Jason Friedman of Creative Realities.
