Chicago Spotlight, the Chicago-based theatrical systems, supplies, and rigging systems dealer, has hired Todd Koeppl as its new sales manager. Koeppl’s responsibilities include everything related to sales, as well as overseeing marketing efforts.

With a background in entertainment production, educational theatre and technical direction, Koeppl returns to Chicago Spotlight from Intelligent Lighting Creations, where he served as director of national sales and marketing. Previously, he was with Chicago Spotlight for six years in the capacity of rental manager, during which time he implemented new rental software systems and dramatically expanded the company’s rental business. Koeppl continues to be active as a designer and educator, serves on two ESTA certification committees, and continues his responsibilities as a house sound engineer and lighting designer at the Norris Cultural Arts Center in St. Charles, IL.

“We are delighted to have Todd back,” says Marty Lazarus, president of Chicago Spotlight, Inc. “Todd’s connections to the professional and educational markets make him a valuable asset. His creativity and fresh ideas bring a wonderful addition to our team. Todd’s background and experience give him the unique ability to make sure that every customer feels like our only customer.”
