Electrosonic is pleased to announce that industry veteran Linda Danet has joined the company as a sales consultant based in the Burbank office. The Thea award winner comes on board after years of experience as a freelance producer of theme park attractions, sporting events and television.
"Linda comes to us from a prestigious career in the themed-entertainment industry," notes Chris Conte, General Manager of North American System Integration, to whom Danet will report. "She has extensive experience in show project management, show design, show production and integration. Her resume includes many of the top design and production firms where she has worked on such high-profile projects as 'Terminator 2: 3D,' 'Star Trek: The Experience,' and the 2002 Salt Lake Olympic Winter Games. Her addition to the Electrosonic team is certainly a big plus for us."
Danet's career is replete with an array of top-level production credits. She was the producer of "Helpline," an internationally broadcast TV talk show originating at CBS Television City in Hollywood; a four time live-event producer of the Bassmaster Classic for ESPN; production manager for the Crystal Cathedral's "Creation" live multimedia show; and installation producer for "Mistify" at SeaWorld Orlando.
Danet was associate producer of "Star Trek: Borg Invasion 4-D," a 3D film that was part of "Star Trek: The Experience" at the Las Vegas Hilton. Earlier she acted as producer/production coordinator for Landmark Entertainment Group of the award-winning Star Trek Museum at the Hilton.
In winter sports she was lead producer of the ice venues for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games and 2002 Paralympic Winter Games at Salt Lake City where her responsibilities included producing live sporting events across five ice venues. She was also a producer in the concept and design development phases for the LEGO Factory Tour at LEGOLAND Park in Gunzberg, Germany via The Bezark Company in Glendale, California.
Prior to her production career, Linda was part of Sony Broadcast's sales and marketing team in Burbank and Cypress, CA. Previously, she had worked for Sony's Government Division in Washington DC.
On joining Electrosonic, Danet adds, "I had been a theme park producer for many years and have had such good experiences with Electrosonic. They have always been a solid company who provide great services and I greatly admire what they stand for in business. I look forward to being a part of the team."
