Ron Morissette has recently joined Scene Ethique in the role of corporate development. He will oversee the introduction to the market of standard staging and grandstand products that have evolved from Scene Ethique's custom fabrication projects.

Morissette was most recently vice president of operations with Montreal-based Realisations, where he collaborated closely with Roger Parent on a series of projects in Las Vegas, Honolulu, and Detroit. He has been involved in design (with Realisations), consulting (with Proximo), and with sales (Prolux, Servispec, and Darpex) for more than 25 years.

Scene Ethique is a full service scenic design and fabrication company with a 23,500 square foot facility on the outskirts of Montreal, Canada. Specializing in the custom fabrication of structural and mechanized scenic elements, Scene Ethique serves clients such as Céline Dion, Cirque du Soleil, Robert Lepage, and many others.

Company president, Martin Ouellet, says, "Ron will allow us to use the technology that we have developed with our custom designs for international tours and apply it to standard products that can be used in a wide range of live performance applications from staging, to turntables to grandstands."

Morissette is a past president of the Canadian Institute of Theatre Technology (CITT) and is currently vice president external for CITT.
