Chaos Promotes From Within


BURBANK, CALIF., June 25, 2014– It is said that the true strength of any organization is in its people, and Chaos Visual Productions prides itself in its ability to promote from within its already established team. Valdis Dauksts and Andrea Ryan are two of the company’s key players that have accepted new challenging roles within the organization.

Dauksts has grown with Chaos Visual as the general manager since its inception in 2009 and will move up as vice president of production. Dauksts’ thirty-five years of experience in the live event production industry began on the road. He has developed his career through several managerial roles that range from production manager of Bryan Adams from 1993-1999 to the general manager of LSD/4th Phase Lighting in 2000 and general manager of XL Touring Video in 2003. The new position at Chaos will bring him back to his roots in a more active role on the production side of Chaos’ concert touring domain.

Andrea Ryan, a hard-working employee since her hire as project coordinator for the Chaos Lighting and Corporate Events department, gleefully accepts the title as Chaos’ new general manager and plans to continue the organization’s success.

Ryan states, “I am so grateful for this opportunity. I am inspired and supported by my Chaos family, as I take on this new challenge. My goal is to build a company culture based on the strong foundation already present and help to make Chaos Visual Productions an even more successful company!”

John Wiseman, president and CEO of Chaos, commented, “This is an exciting time for Chaos as we come out of 2013, our best year-to-date. We are proud that we have the talent within our company that not only likes to take on new challenges, but also strives to continue to raise the bar at Chaos. I’m really looking forward to what the rest of 2014 has in store for us.”
