Fred Foster, founder and CEO of ETC (Electronic Theatre Controls), was awarded the second annual Paky Award in Las Vegas, NV, on Saturday, October 24 as part of the LDI 2015 Awards Ceremony at the 28th annual LDI Tradehow And Conference. Pio Nahum, global sales and marketing director for Clay Paky, presented the award.
Last year, the Paky Award was founded in honor of Mr. Pasquale “Paky” Quadri, founder of Clay Paky and one of the leaders of the international lighting industry who passed away last year. He was the honorary recipient of the first “Paky” Award presented during LDI 2014. Sponsored by Clay Paky and A.C.T Lighting, this award will be presented annually to an individual who has made a major contribution to technology in the industry.
“It is a true honor to receive this recognition that is so properly named after Pasquale Quadri, a man who built a great company and who was a creative force in our industry,” says Foster in a video acceptance speech shown at the LDI awards ceremony. Watch the video below.
