"This is a proud day for us," commented Bob Chambers, Executive Producer & Co-CEO of The Producers Group. "Our Board of Advisors is our brain trust with over 120 years of combined experience. They will be our sounding board and provide executive-level corporate direction. It's a true honor to be associated with this talented group of people."
The Producers Group Board of Advisors include: Thomas McCann, former Senior Vice President Show Ride Engineering at Walt Disney Imagineering; David Snyder, former Director Show Ride Engineering at Walt Disney Imagineering; Wendy Heimann-Nunes, former Senior Director, Business and Legal Affairs Universal Studios; and Don Iwerks, Disney Legend, Co-Founder of Iwerks Entertainment, and 35 year Disney Executive.
"The success of our future relies in our understanding of the past," said Edward Marks, co-CEO of The Producers Group. "The wealth of information and experience of our Board is invaluable. They are our link to the history of our industry."
"I was involved in a small way in the creation of Disneyland, Walt Disney World and later in a larger role in EPCOT," stated Don Iwerks. "Walt conceived what kids and adults wanted, he executed a first class presentation, including top quality, good story telling, cleanliness, clean design of the buildings, efficient crowd control, pre-shows to entertain the guests while waiting in line, training of the employees to treat the customers as guests, and always adding and improving upon what has been done. The leaders of The Producers Group have a real sense of respect and history for those principles and those who have gone before."
"The Producers Group is causing a paradigm shift in the attractions industry," stated David Snyder. "Their production-centered focus is spot-on and needed right now. They live the philosophy of constantly balancing the needs of creative, technical and budget. It's a solid approach, and that's why we can get behind The Producers Group."
"Owners in the industry need a trusted source for turn-key production," stated Tom McCann. "The Producers Group is in a position to produce attractions valued from $1M to $100M. We, as the Board of Advisors, are excited by the great things that will come from this company."
"The executive team of The Producers Group is deeply rooted in and passionate about story-telling projects," commented Wendy Heimann-Nunes of Heimann Galen LLP. "I believe owners and developers will gain a competitive advantage by availing themselves of The Producers Group's unique combination of production management know-how, technical expertise and true understanding of the nuances of the creative process."
"These people represent the absolute core values of The Producers Group," remarked Edward S. Marks, Executive Producer & Co-CEO of The Producers Group. "The Producers Group was established to make attractions happen. Our Board of Advisors has a long history of doing that and more. The experience they bring to the table not only graces the reputation of The Producers Group but assures our clients we have access to some of the greatest technical, creative and professional minds in the business."
