I work in Business Development for the award-winning production arm of CSM, a global marketing, consulting and production agency in the sports and entertainment world. CSM's production arm, formerly JHE Production (http://www.gojhe.com/), is based out of Charlotte and Nashville and specializes in live shows, special events, experiential activations and corporate events. Areas of expertise include audio, lighting, video, staging, fabrication, transportation, and VIP hospitality. Recent projects of note are run-of-show and execution of pre-race ceremonies for nearly all events on the NASCAR Cup circuit, the Battle at Bristol opening ceremonies and halftime entertainment, mobile tours for Ford, and production and promotion of the annual Circle K Speed Street Presented by Coca-Cola festival in Charlotte.
As Senior Manager of Business Development, I work with our Creative Services team to build unique proposals tailored to each potential client’s need and vision in order to build our business through new relationships and opportunities. While I’m not personally building LED video walls or rigging lights, my role still requires creativity and benefits from past experience in technical production as educated dialogue with clients builds trust in our abilities. Prior to joining CSM in 2014, I worked as a videographer & producer at WCYB-TV, and a producer-turned-program manager for the video production arm of Motor Racing Network.
