CHuck Smith

Vice President, Sales & Marketing

 

From birth it was inevitable that Chuck would one day become involved with production. His father worked for over 50 years in the TV and movie industries in many roles, and his mother was a TV backdrop artist. Over the years, he marveled at their ability to create and develop new ways of producing things never before attempted. His appreciation for technical production combined with art makes him a perfect fit for Enliven Production Group and the company’s commitment to providing professional and creative event design and production.

Chuck began his audio-visual journey almost three decades ago as a technician for AVA/Stage Sound (now PSAV). He was quickly promoted to National Account Executive. In this role he sold and produced large scale events for a list of distinguished clientele including Porsche, Ford Motor Company, Nomura Securities, Würth Group, Harley Davidson, NBC, Fox, Nike, Estee Lauder and Phelps Dodge. His years of experience supporting this level of customers have honed his skills and commitment to providing exceptional service. 

Before joining Enliven, Chuck was the Senior Vice President of Sales for an LED lighting manufacturing company, and prior the National Sales Manager for an a/v interface and solution products manufacturer.  For both, he directed the sales efforts of their U.S. and Canadian territories, taking these businesses into new markets, and directly supported their marketing divisions for brand and product development. His direct knowledge and experience in business development, relationships and strategic sales only serves to enhance Enliven’s brand.

Chuck enjoys spending time with his wife cooking, fishing, mountain biking, hiking and kayaking, and value's his time with family and friends.  He's a music enthusiast, plays the piano and keyboards, and regularly composes and records music.
