IMS Technology Services, an award-winning provider of event staging and systems integration solutions, is pleased to announce that Carey Gautreaux and David Coalter have joined the team as new Production Designers.
David Coalter has been entertaining audiences in the musical theater since he was 7 years old, including performing for Disney for years, and now successfully applies his on-stage knowledge and experience to behind-the-scenes roles. Prior to joining IMS, he served as Creative Director for an experiential marketing firm where he was responsible for the creation of thousands of large-scale events and conferences through design, pre-visualization, and thought leadership.
Carey Gautreaux has over 15 years of experience in the AV industry, including as an AV technician for an Orlando-based company and owner of his own business that specialized in event lighting design and production. He has designed scenic indoor and outdoor lighting for a wide range of events, including trade shows, corporate meetings, concerts, art exhibits, car shows, theater productions and more. Carey is also a Certified Vectorworks Spotlight Professional.
“The addition of David and Carey to our talented Creative Design Production (CDP) team catapults our show design services to an entirely new level,” said Paul Wedesky, CMP, C.A.S.E., Chief Operating Officer for IMS. “To deliver on our strategic growth plan, we know that continuing to differentiate ourselves in the area of creative design is imperative.”
“We are incredibly fortunate to have this depth of experience and creativity on our CDP team,” added Warren Abraham, Vice President of Business Development. “David and Carey are joining an amazing team of seasoned industry veterans, including Erik Davis (Director, Production Design), Tim Wingert (Director, Creative Design), and Tom Hill (Event Design Specialist). The creativity and imagination of this new team of five is astounding, and will provide that WOW-factor that every client is looking for in their event design.”
