Nashville, TN - LMG, Inc., a national provider of video, audio and lighting support, recently took part in the grand opening celebrations on May 19-20, 2013 for the Music City Center in Nashville, marking the official opening of LMG’s onsite office as the audiovisual provider for the facility.
Operating onsite under the name Music City Audiovisual, LMG signed a multi-year audiovisual contract with the Music City Center to support the 1.2 million square foot facility with dedicated onsite staff and equipment. LMG supported the grand opening celebration with video, audio and lighting equipment for the two-day celebration in Nashville that included a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, with Brad Paisley showing up to play the Mayor's State of Metro address. The Nashville Symphony, Phil Vassar, Ten Out of Tenn, the Fisk Jubilee Singers, and Sheryl Crow all played free shows as part of the celebration.
As part of the growing onsite team, LMG has hired several new key staff members, led by accounts manager Curt Wallen, who has been working in that role since February. New additions to the MCC team include Chris Royea as account executive, Grace Anzelmo as operations supervisor, and Niki Cardwell as show assistant.
In addition, to round out the Nashville management team, Stephen Presti was promoted to regional manager, and leads the LMG Nashville and Orlando show account teams. Steve Austin, hired in September 2012, manages LMG’s local 24,000 office/warehouse as accounts manager.
